Anduril Industries’ Ghost drone has been officially added to the Blue UAS Cleared List.

This certification, approved by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), marks a crucial step for Anduril, enabling its advanced unmanned aerial system (UAS) to be widely deployed across military operations.


The Ghost drone, known for its advanced surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities, has undergone rigorous evaluation to meet the stringent criteria set by the Blue UAS program. This initiative ensures that only secure and trusted drone technology is used in critical defense operations. Anduril’s Ghost drone combines state-of-the-art sensors, artificial intelligence, and robust cybersecurity measures, making it a versatile tool for modern warfare.

The inclusion of the Ghost drone in the Blue UAS Cleared List signifies its compliance with DoD standards for cybersecurity, supply chain integrity, and operational reliability.

In concert with government and industry partners, Anduril continues to enhance Ghost’s payload options, contested environment capabilities, and open extensible software. In parallel, Anduril is investing in manufacturing and production capabilities to provide this solution to warfighters at scale in relevant timelines.
