WASHINGTON - February 5, 2018 - Aeryon Labs Inc., the world's leading provider of high-performance, small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) for military, public safety, and commercial customers, launched Aeryon Defense USA, Inc.

Based in Denver, Colorado, Aeryon Defense is developing the future of secure, multi-role, UAS that are re-defining what's possible with a Group 1 VTOL aircraft and re-writing operational strategies in the process.
"For over a decade, top militaries around the world have relied on Aeryon to provide unmatched intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities in a ruggedized, portable, sUAS. Launching Aeryon Defense was a natural evolution of the demand we are seeing from our U.S. clients," said William McHale, Chief Executive Officer of Aeryon Labs. "With Aeryon Defense, we can directly support the recently-released U.S. Defense Strategy to modernize command and control assets and ISR capabilities, and introduce advanced autonomous systems in a rapid and innovative manner."
Led by Tom Jackson, a retired U.S. Marine Corps Officer and AH-1W Super Cobra pilot, Aeryon Defense has assembled a team of proven military UAS experts who understand the current and future threat environment, and are equipped with the resources to deliver innovative solutions to meet the needs of defense and federal users for years to come.
"Aeryon Defense is determined to further grow and strengthen its relationship with military and federal agency customers by demonstrating its ability to respond quickly to their needs," said Jackson, Vice President and General Manager of Aeryon Defense. "We are committed to listening to the end user and understand that having a man-portable, multi-role, persistent ISR and tactical asset is invaluable. We are incorporating user input into the design of a new family of sUAS, developed directly from user feedback, that will deliver the next level of flight performance, payload flexibility, mission versatility and more."
The Aeryon Defense mission is to provide customers with the world's most advanced UAS and the dedicated support they need to command superior overmatch on the battlefield, wherever they may be.
Aeryon Labs and Aeryon Defense are backed by Summit Partners, a leading private equity firm that invested $60 million in the company in 2015. This investment further strengthened Aeryon's commitment to support the Department of Defense, which has increasingly partnered with high-growth technology companies to solve mission-critical problems for the warfighter.
