(booth #3015), enabling the latter AeroVironment to incorporate FlightWave’s patented EDGE VTOL system technology in AeroVironment’s next generation family of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) offerings.

We are thrilled to work with AeroVironment, the leading manufacturer in the industry,” Edmund Cronin, Chief Marketing Officer at FlightWave Aerospace, said. “EDGE’s novel VTOL technology enables it to take off and land anywhere without the assistance of additional infrastructure, which means there are no limits when it comes to remote locations.
