The article, titled “Aeroprobe Sets Companies Up for Speed”, discussed the Christiansburg-based company’s Micro Air Data System. Many leaders and innovators in the unmanned systems field use Aeroprobe’s system.
The article also highlighted the talent benefits that Aeroprobe receives by being located in Virginia’s New River Valley. According to the article, “A critical element of Aeroprobe’s ability to attract the talent it needs is its Virginia location, minutes from Virginia Tech’s world-renowned Kevin T. Crofton Department of Aerospace and Ocean Engineering… as well as Radford University, where the physics department offers a dual degree program with Virginia Tech’s College of Engineering.”
Nathaniel Varano, Aeroprobe’s President, had this to say about locating in the NRV:
“Being here in Christiansburg gives us a centralized location in the New River Valley corridor. We’re fortunate to not only have so many universities and colleges to recruit from, but there are also so many great small and mid-sized technology companies, which draw an active community of entrepreneurs and technologists.”
