As a drone technology and services company (Aerocine Ventures, Inc. d/b/a Aerobo – Brooklyn, NY), our mission is to continuously advance our unmanned systems to meet the ever-evolving demands of our clients. In this role, you will be a vital member of our team, leading the charge in designing and developing cutting-edge technologies that will drive our company forward.

Specifically, you will be tasked with spearheading the creation of an Augmented Reality Navigation protocol for multiple unmanned systems, setting the technical direction for vision-based positioning systems as a backup to GPS (alternate PNT), and developing a strategic plan for different flavors of VPS. Your ability to identify the exact resources necessary to execute and bring this technology to maturity for the DoD will be critical in ensuring our continued success.

In addition to these responsibilities, you will oversee all other product and technology development strategies, leading engineering teams to increase their expertise and understanding of best development practices. Your skills in hiring and assigning tasks and responsibilities to multiple engineering teams working on disparate product lines will be invaluable in achieving our goals.

Further, you will project manage 3 Phase 2 SBIR awarded by the USAF, improving TRLs for fielding the solution. You will also acquire geospatial data for 3D models of large facilities in high detail using Pix4d mapper and DJI GS Pro, while coordinating administrative tasks such as equipment and operating budgets. You will maintain fixed asset ledgers while developing R&D and personnel training budgets, and acquire and maintain a fleet of drones (20+ custom and OTS) over a multi-year period to sustainably support drone operations based on depreciating costs for drone equipment in a fast-paced, evolving field.

In short, as our lead technologist, you will play a crucial role in driving the growth and success of our company. Your passion for innovation, strategic vision, and expertise in unmanned systems will be essential in ensuring that we remain at the forefront of this exciting and dynamic industry.
