About Aerial Technology International
Stephen Burtt and Lawrence Dennis formed ATI in 2011 to provide UAS operators with a one stop shop, offering ongoing support, education, and resources for UAS needs. After spending many years operating within the UAS industry, the ATI founders noticed a lack of reliable equipment and technical support for end users. The technical complexities and logistics of safely operating UAS demands a high level of support and reliability from manufacturers, as well as highly skilled operators. ATI provides customers with the resources and expertise needed to succeed in their industry.
The ATI staff share the experience and love for aerospace, photography, film making, and clean technology fueling the company to constantly improve the UAS industry. ATI offers end users the products, training, and support needed to be successful in this exciting new industry. For more information about ATI, visit http://www.AerialTechnology.com.
