Millions of drones are expected to enter U.S. skies this year and many of them require repairs after operational use. Unmanned Systems and Solutions (USAS) has opened a 120,000-square-foot professional drone repair facility capable of quickly repairing drones from most major manufacturers. In partnership with a 36-year-old telecommunications and technology repair business, USAS can receive, evaluate and repair drones with its team of American-based technicians.
“Flying Scan Eagle combat missions in Afghanistan, I learned how important a robust repair capability was to our operations,” says USAS founder Pete Dwyer. “I was surprised upon returning home that no nationwide, highly professional repair capability existed in the U.S. That’s why we founded USAS.”
Starting on USAS’ website, hobbyist, commercial and government UAS operators can generate a mailing label to ship their drone for evaluation. USAS will provide a repair cost and time estimate within 48 hours for an industry-low evaluation fee of $29.95. Most repairs take less than a week and average around $200. USAS has in-house repair, parts fabrication and testing facilities run by technicians with decades of experience repairing highly sensitive and mission critical electronic equipment.
“We’ve assembled a team of combat-proven UAS operators, military veterans and entrepreneurs who have operated UAS in commercial, government and recreational settings. We understand how important it is to get you back in the air,” Dwyer says.
USAS is a combat veteran owned small business with offices in Chicago; Washington D.C.; Tampa, Fla.; and Toronto. In addition to its repair capabilities, the company provides UAS operational services and UAS regulatory consulting to commercial and government operators.
