Your company has earned a reputation for building high-quality drones equipped with premium cameras, advanced performance features, and a wide range of automated flight modes.In recent years, Aerospace Drones has become a preferred vendor for private security companies due to your products’ superb aerial imagery. Recently, a colleague recommended that you expand your business even further by competing for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security contracts.
