question. Next

what days, countries? versus in sensors U.S. the Company’s global other manufactured of percentage are the airframes and these Given footprint

Barrett Mooney

the question really This because is prided manufacturing of Switzerland. hardware in is our United manufactured a and great ourselves States our we And all or on prowess capabilities. either

world, locations While of but supply around in few Switzerland. we facilities, of either our a continue shore of the a assembly sourced testing out up still chain, one variety our and from States United design, or comes our to all the are of components

Nicole Fernandez-McGovern


question. Next

Unit, UAS cleared software? Defense there such or With the the meaningful other TAC offerings as Innovation Blue by list opportunities cross-selling sensors for the to added eBee are

Barrett Mooney

our sector. software offer industries, ideal combining government Absolutely, for variety a in the partner makes And and We and expertise us hardware absolutely. an many of including development solutions. defense

of focal So, a growth point big cross-selling going our is strategy forward.

the solving actively We’re a our and have can customer we so don’t in coordinated we best the that training combining solution, sales solutions to If team for matrixed can work best build it. way we provide problems.

Nicole Fernandez-McGovern
