Account Manager II at Airspace
United States of America

About the Company:

 

Airspace Systems, Inc - an advanced technology company committed to the safe emergence of the drone economy - is addressing a new dimension in the world of security. Drones have a wide range of life-saving and mission-critical uses, including disaster response, firefighting, supply and medicine delivery, and locating missing persons, to name a few. In order for the drone industry to realize its full economic and social potential, airspace security must be assured.

 

Airspace Systems, in conjunction with the military, has developed a leading airspace security solution with tremendous potential to do real and meaningful good in the commercial and civilian sectors. As of February 2019, the company has been cleared to sell and deploy the solution for commercial use. The Airspace Galaxy security platform uses AI and advanced robotics to provide immediate detection and identification of all drones present in a large airspace, enabling a quick response to malicious UASs. The company plans to include drone mitigation – the safe removal of unauthorized and malicious drones and their operators – as part of a comprehensive solution in the near future.

 

Airspace exists to keep safe and secure skies open for business and social good.

 

Today, users for the detection and identification of drone traffic include airports, corporate and academic campuses, entertainment facilities and franchises, utilities, large commercial real estate operators and civil safety providers. To capitalize on a window of opportunity to become the leading provider of airspace security in these commercial and civil sectors, venture and strategic investors have just provided substantial additional funding to Airspace Systems. The company is seeking to quickly build a top-notch Sales team to execute on a succinct vision in a rapidly emerging market.
