Communications, navigation and surveillance equipment designer and manufacturer uAvionix announced the official opening of two new facilities on Tuesday. The first facility, called Headquarters 2 (HQ2), is located in Leesburg, Virginia, and will be used for business operations, development and regulatory engagement. The second is a FAA Manufacturing Inspection District Office (MIDO) approved manufacturing facility in Columbia Falls, Montana, which includes a 4000-square-foot multi-line manufacturing floor.
“We are proud to have employees in both Virginia and Montana locations and the contributions that we are making to the local economies furthers our mission to provide avionics that aid in communication, navigation and separation of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), general aviation and even airport surface common situational awareness,” said uAvionix President Christian Ramsey. According to uAvionix, the expansion is the “result of increased demand for uAvionix certified products like skyBeacon and tailBeacon for the GA market, and ping200X and truFYX for the unmanned systems market.”
