Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) services provider AirMap has established a new business unit to provide mission-critical technologies to defence and security markets. AirMap Defense Group (ADG) creates dual-use technologies for commercial and national defence use. It is responsible for AirMap’s Department of Defense (DoD) projects, including the AirMap AirBoss platform, which provides a tactical intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) solution for small quadcopters.
AirMap has formed the ADG Advisory Council to provide strategic guidance to the new unit. The founding members of the Advisory Council are:
- General Robert B. Neller (Retired), who served as the 37th Commandant of the Marine Corps and commanded Platoon through Service HQs as a career Infantry Officer.
- Major General George B. Harrison (Retired), former commander of the Air Force Operational Test and Evaluation Center at Kirtland Air Force Base.
- Colonel Edward G. “Edge” Gibbons (Retired), former US Army Infantry Officer who served in the 82nd Airborne Division, the 4th Infantry Division (Mechanized), and the 3rd Infantry Division (Mechanized).
ADG aims to provide secure, scalable, and cost-effective solutions that help government agencies fill technology gaps, drive efficiencies, and perform essential operations.
“Using American-built technologies, ADG tailors AirMap’s innovative commercial systems for the public sector, with a focus on improving critical DoD operations,” said Larry Berkin, AirMap’s Executive Vice President of Business and Corporate Development and GM of the AirMap Defense Group.
