Drone Aviator Association

DRONE AVIATOR ASSOCIATION

Launched early this year, the Drone Aviator Association (DAA) is a membership portal, the industry’s first drone-only trade organization that advocates for drone users. More than six million drone users are expected by 2017, continuing a 30% year-to-year growth rate. Benefits of DAA membership ($50/year) include FAA registration, access to certification courses, and insurance products to limit the inherent risks of flying a drone.

Founded: 2016

CEO: Egbert Oostburg

Product/Service: Drone user trade organization

Website: www.droneaviator.co

Location: 1185 First Street, Suite #103, San Diego, CA 92101

Quotable: This industry is evolving and accelerating at an astounding rate. With the advancements in drone technology over the next 12 months, we won’t even recognize where we are today. It’s going to be a fun ride.”        – Egbert Oostburg

Notable trend: Apple has partnered with China-based DJI, the world’s leading drone manufacturer, to challenge GoPro’s supremacy in action photo/video capture.

CITADEL

Founded: 2016

CEO/Founder: Daniel Magy

Product/Service: Drone Management Solutions

Website: www.citadelthreatmanagement.com

Location: 1185 First Street, Suite #103, San Diego, CA 92101

Quotable: CITADEL’s goal is to secure the skies from nefarious drones. To do this, CITADEL has built a proprietary system that deploys a shield around high-risk targets and gives security teams the ability to automatically ‘depilot’ a drone as it encroaches into restricted airspace.

“All of this is accomplished without disrupting normal communication devices like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellphones.” – Daniel Magy

Notable trend: “The presence of a U.S. anti-drone system, while a seemingly sensible counter-measure against the Islamic State’s fondness for using the remote-controlled aircraft, is a small glimpse into how the American military is adapting to evolving battlefield threats in the wake of its two protracted ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.” (Washington Post, July 15, 2016)
