ALTIUS [AIR-LAUNCHED, TUBE-INTEGRATED, UNMANNED SYSTEM] was conceived in 2011 under an Air Force SBIR contract to develop a high-endurance air-frame that would store and launch from an Air Force Common Launch Tube [CLT] to conduct Information, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance [ISR] missions. ALTIUS is an integral part of the Air-Force Research Laboratory’s [AFRL] Tactical Off-Board Sensing [TOBS] program.
