AeroVironment, Inc. engages in the design, development and production of unmanned aircraft systems and energy technologies for various industries and governmental agencies. It offers small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) primarily to organizations within the U.S. Department of Defense, and fast charge systems for electric industrial vehicle batteries to commercial customers. Its small UAS, including Raven, Dragon Eye, Swift, Wasp, and Puma provides tactical reconnaissance, tracking, combat assessment, and geographic data directly to the small tactical unit or individual war fighter. The company's small UAS aircraft wirelessly transmit live video and other information generated by their payload of electro-optical or infrared sensors, enabling the operator to view and capture images on a hand-held ground control unit. AeroVironment's small UAS solutions also include spare equipment, alternative payload modules, batteries, chargers, repairs, and Internet-enabled customer support, as well as refurbishment and replacement services for damaged small UAS. The company also offers PosiCharge fast charge systems that eliminate frequent battery changing by recharging industrial vehicle batteries during scheduled breaks and other times when the vehicle is not in use. Its customers for small unmanned aircraft systems include the U.S. Army, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Special Operations Command. The company primarily sells its PosiCharge products through direct sales force in Arizona, California, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, the United Kingdom, and Germany. AeroVironment was founded in 1971 and is headquartered in Monrovia, California.
