About us

Based in Austin, TX DroneSense was founded in 2015 by software entrepreneurs and early drone adopters who immediately recognized the benefits of drone usage within public safety. Since then, DroneSense has assembled a well-rounded team from diverse backgrounds who believe in the positive impact drones can have. We envision a future where drones are stationed on every firehouse, are available in every police squad car, and deploy ahead of EMS -- often being the actual first responder on a scene. We are driven by our goal to empower public safety organizations to effectively utilize drones in various missions to expand situational awareness, be a force multiplier and ultimately, save more lives.

We are proud to work with groups like APSA and WeRespond - Smart Firefighting Community to help continue the responsible integration and use of UAS in public safety organizations.
