Autonomous Avionics has opened a small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) manufacturing facility in Denver to build custom drones specifically designed to meet individual customers' needs.
The Denver-based company, which was founded this year, notes that the new facility combines manufacturing capability, office space and a showroom to augment its online business.
‘Small unmanned aerial vehicles are a game-changing technology for many reasons,’ says Bernie Hoffman, president of Autonomous Avionics. ‘We know there are boundless opportunities for UAV technology.
‘Amazon has publicly stated they want to deliver packages via drones, and while it might be a few years before we actually see the technology being used for this application, there are several commercial uses in practice today, including photography for real estate marketing, energy exploration, pollution monitoring, security and even agriculture,’ he adds.
