Gold Standard Operations

Over 1,000 square miles of FAA-approved airspace within the United States, an industry record

Since 2009, our clients have accumulated the largest portfolio of FAA Certificates of Authorization (COAs) outside of the defense industry, enabling more flights in more places than any BLOS UAS. We have flown over 100 flights in the National Airspace System – safely, effectively and in full compliance with FAA regulations. Long endurance UAS provide 50 times the coverage rate of multirotor drones and much higher resolution with lower cost than satellites.
