Leveraging our patent-pending Mission Match platform, we locate, qualify, and deploy single pilot or multi-pilot crews according to our client’s requirements. We deliver on-demand services to commercial, government, and military organizations.

A former military officer, Tom is a recognized pioneer in military and government digital reform, having managed the extensive programming and web enablement of computer systems to support both the U.S. and International Special Forces.
As a result of his thesis, The Point of Mobile Confluence, Tom was tapped as an advisor to the White House on innovative technologies and their impact on the emerging workforce. The data from the research, combined with his military search and rescue experience, led to the creation of DroneUp.
