We flew the VectorP sUAS at Fort Hunter Liggett for a NASA sponsored "Fly-off" to demonstrate the use of drones as an imaging platform for fire fighters.
We built 30 Mako UAVs that were used by allied forces for recon missions in the Middle East wars from 2003-2005.
Demonstrating the VectorP sUAS to NASA and a gathering of engineers, scientists, and firefighters at Fort Hunter Liggett near King City, CA.
The Tigershark UAV was the larger sister to the Mako and we built the first two fuselages for the program. Heavily used in the Middle East, the Tigershark continues to fly for the U.S. Military.
Built over a two year period, the Mako XPV2 UAV was used in the Middle East wars from 2003-2005. Providing an eye in the sky for ground soldiers.
We were one of the first modern drone companies to fly from an international airport when we demonstrated the VectorP UAV to a group of scientists from around the world in San Jose Costa Rica. The flights were coordinated with NASA and the Costa Rican Aviation Authority.
Scientists from around the world gather with the VectorP UAV. One of several groups that were bused to the airport from the convention center to see us fly over local coffee fields.
We helped design the TERP UAV and then handled piloting duties. Mike Tranchitella holds a TERP that was tested in Utah at an altitude of 10,000' MSL. This TERP was for a customer in India.
Happy customers are our goal and these guys were no exception. We successfully flew this foreign built drone for a counter-uav program. The aircraft was flown by several organizations and we're proud to say we were the only one not to damage it. The aircraft was deemed to be of no threat as its flight characteristics were horrible.
