With extreme pace of technology advancement, drones are rapidly taking their place all around us. For the first time in history, many can have their own aircraft and view the world in a way previously reserved for a selected few. However, wide availability and fast adoption of small unmanned aircraft represent significant challenge to their successful and safe integration into everyday life.
On the one side, they are aircraft, regulated by aviation authorities. On the other side, their technological base and pace of its advancement are more similar to smartphones than airplanes. While aviation is risk averse and ensures that technical systems work well before they are widely deployed, information technology world is focused on super-fast innovation and comfortable with adoption of new technologies before they are fully matured. Consequently, both views need to be considered in order to successfully navigate the unmanned aviation landscape.
When drones attracted his attention, the company’s founder, Igor Tesija, instinctively did just that. He spent decades working in the fast-growing field of IT and, at the same time, he has been a lifelong aviation enthusiast and a licensed pilot. The company aims to integrate and share those different experiences and best practices to assist others in successfully adopting unmanned aircraft systems.
