Silent Arrow® is a tandem-wing, precision delivery vehicle developed for the U.S. Department of Defense to conduct resupply missions when overland delivery is infeasible or undesirable. The GD-2000 can provide up to a 40-mile standoff distance for the delivery aircraft at half the cost of JPADS, while carrying over 1,500 lbs.
Silent Arrow® can be deployed from the C-5, C-17, C-130, V-22, and other cargo aircraft platforms and additionally can be carried via slingload from the CH-53 and other rotorcraft platforms. Up to 80 Silent Arrows can fit into a 40-foot container for transport to the theater of operations, and up to 20 can fit onto a C-130 for multiple drop missions. Our products are available in four platforms:
