"Exemplary Professionalism in Service and Expertise"

This company is extremely professional, well organized, and fully embraces the 'serving those who serve' mindset. They are truly invested in autonomous / UGV integration and have a very knowledgeable staff that can provide support. They are also known to volunteer both staff and equipment for natural disasters, specifically the recent hurricanes that impacted Florida. I would highly recommend this company for any UAS/robotic needs.

"Exceptional Product Quality and Customer Support"

We have been a client for 6 months or so and have had great experiences with the UAS we purchased. It has exceeded our expectations during operations. Recently we had an issue during a high risk operation. Customer service and all reps we dealt with were great with getting our UAS fixed quickly to assure our down time was minimal. We are looking at purchasing another UAS due to our experiences. Would highly recommend!
