PLS - UAS/Drone Services

Our experienced and FAA licensed sUAS pilots have the necessary training to understand your business objective and how UAS/drone systems can be leveraged in commercial applications to achieve them.  We take the time to clearly define goals, expectations and deliverables prior to launching any project and will work with required authorities to ensure all permissions required including FAA waivers are obtained.  No two projects are the same, but we leverage industry standard best practices and procedures to ensure a standardized process and approach where safety is rule #1.
