With their initial funding from the Genius NY business accelerator, Ascent AeroSystems hires Derrick Miller as a full time employee. Derrick joined the team in April and brings with him 17 years of drone piloting experience.
Originally from the small town of Nichols in Tioga County, New York, Derrick is a graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Engineering Program with a focus in Aerospace engineering. Before recently moving back to Central New York, Derrick was involved with Lockheed Martin’s Space Program in Colorado.
Derrick is assisting with product development and quality assurance during the company's current manufacturing process of Sprite Drones.
Ascent AeroSystems designs, manufactures, sells, and supports small unmanned aerial vehicles. They recently reopened sales of their unique, portable and rugged drones, superior to most typical multi-rotors on the market.
