  • 11:00 -13:00

    Please join us as Rear Admiral Tim Heely tells the “Tales of a Small Drone Company in a Big Airplane Manufacturer World”. We will also be joined by special guest David Christian, co-author of Victor Six.

    Admiral Heely has been on all sides of unmanned vehicle acquisition – as a procurement official for the U.S. government, to working for a large defense contractor manufacturing UAV sensors and systems, to running a small start-up business with a Tier 3 vehicle that holds the world record for conventionally powered unmanned flight. Heely will talk about the vehicle, the pursuit of funding (private and governmental), and how a tiny company finds its way in a big company world.

    There will be an opportunity for networking, and lunch will be provided!
