It’s official: we’re opening a new facility in Portugal! In Ponte de Sor, a city near the Spanish border, we’re building a state-of-the-art factory where we’ll develop and manufacture our larger UAS platforms, like the AR5 Life Ray. We’re thrilled to be able to have such an important tool at our disposal, especially as it is located inside a perfectly fitted airfield that will allow us to test and perfect our systems.
We’ll also be making a huge social and economic impact of a region that has been heavily affected by unemployment, and from which people have to leave to find suitable jobs. We’ll start welcoming new members of the team at the end of the year, and we expect to start having the facility operational within the first months of 2016.
