Since AeroVironment's beginnings more than 45 years ago, our scientists and engineers have sought innovative solutions to many of our most difficult security, energy and infrastructure management challenges. But as remarkable as our products are, it's the actionable intelligence they provide our customers that most clearly defines our company.
From the moment we developed our breakthrough unmanned aircraft systems, we understood their primary benefit—giving people the ability to see the situation ahead. With AeroVironment's sophisticated eyes in the sky, we could provide life-saving intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance for our troops on the battlefield. Today, AeroVironment has become the acknowledged expert and largest supplier of small, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to the Pentagon and to dozens of allied nations.
As effective as our small UAS have become on the battlefront, they promise to be equally life-saving on the home front. AeroVironment's family of integrated and interoperable UAS also gives law enforcement personnel and first responders the ability to see and assess the situation ahead. While AeroVironment's information solutions will significantly change the way farmers and energy providers monitor and manage their assets.
