Thanks for responding. We are just starting up. Our main office will be in Vancouver. Our plane is to have a variety of UAVs and sensors to address different applications - minerals, agriculture, etc. We will be getting our funding hopefully in a week or two.. When that happens we'll get in touch - if not before.
