Design, Test, & Fabrication

We are proud to design and build our aircraft in the U.S. Our team consists of U.S. citizens who are capable of rapidly modifying an existing design to meet new industry requirements and/or unique application needs. DPI is the industry leader in rotorcraft UAVs in the U.S. We have developed rigorous test processes, equipment, and facilities specifically designed for UAVs. DPI is uniquely positioned to provide rapid, robust, cost-effective engineering design, prototyping, test, fabrication, and manufacturing. We have long-term existing relationships with experts in all avionics areas to support design modifications, integration, and test services. We isolate and reduce risk methodically throughout the development cycle. This minimizes flight failures and ensures the delivery of a more predictable aircraft with fewer design cycles and prototypes.
Our Unique Facility

Our facility includes the following areas: Engineering, Development, Testing, and Training. DPI’s location is ideal for rapid test and development of UAV systems and subsystems. In addition, we are in close proximity to two restricted airspace test ranges. We use these ranges for flight tests, flight termination tests, data link range tests, and other critical tests.
