I’m Joe, the CEO of Aerostade, a UAV startup in NY, USA. In addition to the normal UAV services like mapping, modeling, photography, and videography, I’m working on some novel concepts.
The end goal, similar, I think, to ODM, is to democratize UAV technology. By combining a variety of open-source software and commercial, off-the-shelf components, I’m aiming to offer a sub-$2000 fixed wing mapping and SAR platform with a flight duration of 90 minutes, RTK, 15km transmission range, and other features offered only on high-end platforms.
Once the prototypes are complete, I’m targeting NGOs, conservation/environmental groups, disaster relief organizations, and other who operation on a shoestring budget.
