Teal is among the recipients of the $10 million Utah Manufacturing Modernization Grant, awarded by the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity as an incentive for Utah businesses to modernize, establish, relocate, retain or develop manufacturing in the state.

The company’s flagship Teal 2, introduced in April 2023, is designed to “Dominate the Night™” with its best-in-class night vision camera, fully modular design, multi-vehicle control and artificial intelligence capabilities. The Teal 2 features the latest intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance technology, delivering time-critical information and enabling operators to make faster, smarter decisions. Outside of defense, Teal 2 is also being used for public safety, land and fire management, and infrastructure inspection use cases.
“We’re grateful to the State of Utah and the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity for selecting Teal as a recipient of this grant,” said George Matus, Teal founder and CEO. “This is a big step toward rebuilding America’s drone industrial base and expanding manufacturing on domestic soil. Drones are critical to the future of Defense and Teal is positioned to fulfill the exponentially growing demand from America and its allies.”
