Unmanned Systems and Solutions (USAS) has opened up its 120,000-square-foot drone repair facility, which the company says is capable of quickly repairing unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) from most major manufacturers.
In partnership with a 36-year-old telecommunications and technology repair business, USAS says it can receive, evaluate and repair drones with its team of technicians.
USAS is a combat-veteran-owned small business with offices in Chicago; Washington, D.C.; Tampa, Fla.; and Toronto, Ontario. In addition to its repair services, the company provides UAS operational services and UAS regulatory consulting to commercial and government operators.
“Flying ScanEagle combat missions in Afghanistan, I learned how important a robust repair capability was to our operations,” comments Peter Dwyer, founder of USAS.
USAS says commercial and government UAS operators can go to the company’s website and generate a mailing label to ship their drone to USAS for evaluation. USAS will then provide a repair cost and time estimate within 48 hours for a fee of $29.95.
According to the company, most repairs take less than a week to complete and average around $200. USAS has in-house repair, parts fabrication and testing facilities run by technicians with decades of experience repairing highly sensitive and mission-critical electronic equipment, the company says.
“We’ve assembled a team of combat-proven UAS operators, military veterans and entrepreneurs who have operated UAS in commercial, government and recreational settings,” Dwyer adds. “We understand how important it is to get you back in the air.”
