Microdrones CEO Discusses New Alliance with GE

Both pilots and companies are navigating a thin line between security and innovation. Host Grant Guillot talks with leaders, influencers, and experts across the drone industry to guide us through the complex web of technology and policy in the United States.


Microdrones and GE recently entered into a partnership, which will see Microdrones bring GE’s Industrial drones to the market globally. The partnership is GE’s first foray into the commercial drone world, though they have been working on their own drones for years.

Here to talk with Host Grant Guillot on this episode of Drones In America is Vivien Heriard Dubreuil, CEO of Microdrones, founded in Germany in 2005 with the launch of groundbreaking and reliable unmanned aerial vehicles.

The licensing agreement highlights two of Microdrones’ key core competencies. First, they focus on industrial applications, which combine well with GE’s expertise, according to Dubreuil, and both companies share the vision for industrial applications powered by drones.

“We were bringing the expertise in terms of payload, drones, and data platform, but the industry’s knowledge, the need from the end-users is coming from GE,” Dubreuil said.

Microdrones is also good at addressing the needs of the land surveying companies, but working with GE takes them to another level and allows them to work with larger organizations. The industry moves incredibly fast, and most of the industry is less than five years old. Microdrones are built in a modular approach so fliers can upgrade and scale their operation and future-proof their equipment.
