Describe your company in five words.

Electronics Manufacturing Services 

What are your biggest goals in the field of unmanned systems over the next few years?

Develop new customers in air-ground-water based unmanned systems who require a high level of technical & business support to meet ever-changing market demands. 

Where do you see the industry going in the next decade?

A higher level of Counter-Drone technology to ensure the positive use of unmanned systems is sustained at a high level. More use of UAS/AUS/UGV for commercial and ruggedized industrial applications. 

What role do you see your organization playing in the industry's future?

We see ourselves as trusted advisors in the area of electronics and electronics supply chain. Given the extreme shortages and extended lead-times of electronic components from the growth of automotive sensor technology and the "IOT"... we can provide value to reduce overall program risk.
