Anduril recently reported that their engineers conducted the first live warhead test of the ALTIUS-700M in Utah last Fall. After conducting earlier trials of subsystems and inert system testing, the system was fully integrated and tested for the first time, demonstrating successful delivery of effects on target from launch. Collaborating with Department of Defense partners, the ALTIUS-700M team achieved all test objectives and demonstrated the system’s accuracy and effectiveness against the selected target set.

ALTIUS is a versatile family of modular, multi-platform launched effects designed for various missions and is deployable by air, ground, or maritime forces. It can be configured for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and targeting (ISR&T), communications relay, cyber warfare, or kinetic strike missions. With features like extended range, loitering time, and open hardware/software architectures, ALTIUS enables simultaneous mission execution for complex objectives. It has proven its performance across diverse deployments, from collecting hurricane data to battlefield operations in Ukraine and through numerous test events and demonstrations.

The ALTIUS-700M variant offers a payload capacity of up to 33 pounds, similar to an AGM-114 Hellfire missile. It delivers precise strikes on large and armored targets such as tanks, vehicles, vessels, and infrastructure. Its significant payload mass, high terminal velocity, and optional delayed fuze payload configurations ensure maximum impact on armored targets. With a range of up to 100 miles and a flight time of 75 minutes, the ALTIUS-700M provides warfighters with an extended standoff distance and increased loitering time for target location and kinetic effects delivery.

Anduril has invested more than $60M in a new 180,000-square-foot production facility in Atlanta, Georgia, to scale up manufacturing of ALTIUS. Over the past six years, Anduril has already designed, manufactured, and delivered hundreds of ALTIUS variants to U.S. Government customers.
