ADVANCED AIRCRAFT COMPANY
Describe your company in five words.
Manufactures long endurance multi-rotor UAS
What are your biggest goals in the field of unmanned systems over the next few years?
1) To shake up the multi-rotor market with a long endurance multi-rotor that can fly 6 to 8 times longer than battery powered multi-rotors.
2) To develop the NASA Greased Lightning UAS technology into a commercialized product. This technology is unique because it is the first VTOL aircraft to achieve the aerodynamic efficiency of a conventional fixed wing aircraft. Thus, no compromises, VTOL and the performance of a fixed wing.
Where do you see the industry going in the next decade?
Today, I see the UAS industry in a similar place as the computer industry was in the early 1990s. The computer industry in the 1990s, went from few households having a computer to nearly every household having a computer. The UAS industry is still very early in its growth curve and over the next 10 years we will see a democratization of UAS that will interface with the majority of the population on a daily basis.
What is your organization's focus over the next three months?
AAC is currently focused on our beta program for the HAMR UAS. We are currently seeking early adopters who want to buy or lease HAMR UAS at very competitive pricing.
What makes AUVSI membership attractive to your organization?
The networking opportunities that AUVSI provides in the unmanned systems industry.
