Granta Autonomy, a Lithuanian startup focused on fully autonomous UAVs for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, announced the successful completion of a €1 million seed funding round. The round was led by ScaleWolf VC, a prominent Lithuanian dual-use tech VC Fund and Accelerator, with contributions from Brolis Defence and HFL holdings. The new capital will accelerate the development and production of Granta Autonomy’s UAVs, micro gimbals, and digital Datalink software. Co-founded by former military engineers Gediminas Guoba and Laurynas Litvinas, the company supplies NATO forces and has deployed its technologies on the Ukrainian front lines. The latest UAV, Hornet XR, is designed for covert missions with features such as silent flight and modular design for easy transport. The funding will help the company scale production and meet European defense needs, reducing reliance on external sources. ScaleWolf VC’s Managing Partner Edvinas Kerza emphasized the transformative potential of Granta Autonomy’s technology in modern military operations.
