Angel Eyes Leadership

Angel Eyes UAV is quickly emerging as a leader in the fast-growing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) industry because of the unique way they have merged two cutting-edge industries: drones and information management.

Drones have changed the way contractors build structures, civil engineers plan land use, farmers plant their fields, and scientists study everything. Research that used to be impossible to do can now be done safely and accurately by attaching high-definition cameras and meters to UAVs. However, these super-precise instruments produce overwhelming streams of data that must be stored, categorized, and analyzed.

With over 40 years of combined IT expertise, the team at Angel Eyes have developed proprietary processes for managing all this data and making it useful for industries that demand high quality data. Whether you’re studying a field, a city, or a mountain range, Angel Eyes has the technology and the expertise to help you get the exact information you need, when you need it.

CEO Stephen J. Myers has also been called upon by state and federal governments and national organizations for testimony and advocacy in the developing UAV industry. He is actively working with multiple government agencies to develop business-friendly legislation that protects privacy and supports research.

Angel Eyes is a leader in the industry due in part to their expertise in encryption, virtualized server systems, Amazon Cloud services, and automated data processing. They offer high performance after-market equipment (i.e. batteries, motors, cameras, etc.) for specific platforms.
