PUSHING THE FRONTIERS OF DRONE TECHNOLOGY
FusionFlight Inc. is an Aerospace start-up based out of Dallas, Texas, USA. The company is four-years old and aims to push the frontiers of drone technology to a whole new level. Above all, the purpose of FusionFlight is to show that modern electrical drones are very limited to payload capacity and top speed due to the low energy density of conventional battery technology. Therefore, FusionFlight has built the world's first Jet-Powered, Diesel-fueled, Vertical-Take off and landing drone - AB6 JetQuad. The JetQuad will demonstrate that, thanks to turbines, drones do not need to be cheap, plastic, camera-toys. Certainly, drones will become true industrial machines - work-horses that shape the modern world.
TOWARDS POWER-GRID INDEPENDENCE
We understand that Microturbine technology is not just limited to aircraft. This technology can allow us to build ultra-compact power generation systems. This system, known as the ARC microturbine generator could prove as an extremely useful tool for anybody running off-the-grid.
MEET THE TEAM
Our team is made up of experts in the fields of Engineering and Physics.
CEO & Founder
Alex has begun his career in Mechanical Engineering performing structural analysis for rocket engine and nuclear reactor components. Alex holds a Master's in Mechanical Engineering from USC and is self-taught in the areas of Control Systems, Software, and Electrical Engineering. Over the years, he has worked in a diverse set of industries including military jet propulsion, semiconductors, robotics and micro-satellites.
Chief Operations Officer
Keith Ciccotello has a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Minor in Business Administration. He is a licensed Professional Engineer with Management-level experience in the Telecom and Automotive Industries as well as expertise in Forensic Engineering. He is responsible for all legal and logistical issues and is also in charge of coordinating with suppliers and clients. Keith is FAA Part 107 licensed pilot.
Chief Science Advisor
For years, Eugene has been inspiring Alex to look for ways to build efficient new machines. These ideas now make-up the back-bone of the technology for the FusionFlight jet-powered drone. Today, Eugene continues his support and advises Alex directly on all technological aspects of the company. Eugene worked for decades in various software-based start-up companies. Eugene received his Ph.D. in Physics from the Belarus Academy of Sciences.
