Airbus Aerial imagery services targets a range of applications for commercial industries, such as insurance, agriculture, oil and gas, and utilities as well as state and local governments.

Airbus recently launched its U.S. base and operations of a new commercial drone startup: Airbus Aerial. With bases in the United States and Europe, Airbus Aerial’s initial business will focus on developing new imagery services that leverage software and aerospace technology to offer actionable data and analysis of information provided by drones, satellites, high-altitude aircraft and other sources.

“Through Airbus Aerial, we are uniquely positioned and fully committed to advancing the commercial Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) industry,” said Dirk Hoke, CEO of Airbus Defence and Space. “It is bringing together partners from across the industry—ranging from vehicle manufacturers, data analytics companies, service providers and others—to enable data-focused services at large scale.”

The U.S.-based part of Airbus Aerial will be headquartered in Atlanta and led by Jesse Kallman, a UAS industry expert with more than 12 years of experience.

“Drones are only a piece of a much larger picture for us,” said Kallman. “Airbus Aerial brings together a variety of aerospace technologies—including drones and satellites—combines them in a common software infrastructure, and applies industry-specific analytics to deliver tailored solutions to our customers’ biggest challenges.”
