UASUSA, an established, commercial, civil drone company, exhibited the TEMPEST at the largest RC trade show in the Country.
TOLEDO, OHIO, April 11th, 2015
Civil use drones are everywhere, and the gap between the RC world and the drone industry is quickly disappearing. UASUSA manufactures, pilots and programs electric, fully autonomous planes that come from sailplane technology. These drones provide everyday benefits to communities all around the world. UASUSA’s planes have helped dropped vaccines in Africa, searched for rhino poachers, studied the inner workings of tornados, flown at the edge of space and monitored flood damage…to name just a few of the missions.
Skip Miller is excited. He's excited about drones, he's excited about Longmont, and most of all, he's excited about making drones in Longmont.
The competitive model airplane flyer who has been involved in two other local businesses has finished moving both his model airplane retail shop and drone assembly workspace into a Vance Brand Municipal Airport hangar.
Miller is a Boulder resident and had a hand in starting what is now the Boulder Beer Company as well as former storage device company Wood Logic. Miller said he plans on being a good neighbor in Longmont, drawing from a technology-driven culture to employee roughly four more full-time employees. They can currently produce about five drones a month but hope to ramp up to 10 in the near future.
