Shield AI’s Acquisition of Heron Systems

Reed Smith has advised Shield AI on its acquisition of Heron Systems, Inc.

Together, Shield AI and Heron will accelerate the deployment of advanced AI-pilots to legacy and future military aircraft – an urgent and necessary step toward achieving national security priorities and remaining credible in the face of sophisticated peer countries. Heron Systems will operate as a wholly owned division under Shield AI.

Shield AI is a venture-backed artificial intelligence company that builds self-driving technology that enables swarms of unmanned systems to operate on the edge without GPS, communications, or remote pilots.

Heron Systems is an artificial intelligence company that builds practical, deployable autonomous agents and multi-agent systems powered by AI.

The Reed Smith team that advised Shield AI comprised of New York corporate partners Chris Sheaffer (Picture) and Anatoliy Rozental and associates Nataly Laufer Sultan and Brian Tratner.
