The Beginning

In 2014 a small team of dedicated engineers Based in Wellington, New Zealand, realised the potential for small unmanned aircraft.

This evolved to the development of remote piloted aircraft (RPAS) or drones. Using 40 years of manufacturing and design experience, they utilised the latest technology and composite materials to create a cost-effective long-range drone – the Scout 15.

Working closely with other early adopters, Kimberley has created a heavy duty, robust commercial drone that is customizable for a range of industries and applications.
