NX Aviation, a small aerospace company based at the Stafford Regional Airport, has secured a contract with the University of Maryland to provide drone pilot services this year.

“UAS technology significantly expands military and technical ability to obtain critical data,” stated Meg Bohmke, Stafford County Board Chairman. “ NX Aviation’s capabilities will allow the industry to deliver many new mission requirements safer, with less cost, and less environmental impact.”

“NX Aviation is another example of Stafford’s position as a leading center for advanced technology in cyber and “smart” technologies, including the use of and development of drone and unmanned systems.  The expansion of existing and new business and entrepreneurs, like NX Aviation, is an example of ‘What’s Next’ in Stafford.” MORE>>
