Tony Reid, Founder / CEO of Drone Tech UAS
Drone Tech UAS was created by founder Tony Reid and based on his experiences as a correctional officer. As technology is increasingly being used to break laws, we have seen a rise in correctional facility airspace violations and attempted contraband drops. Reid wanted to create a safe way to detect and prevent these occurrences while keeping fellow staff safe and out of harm’s way.
