LOWNDES COUNTY — Stark Aerospace soon will begin test flying unmanned aerial systems from Golden Triangle Regional Airport.
Stark’s parent company is Israel Aerospace Industries, a leader in military and commercial aerospace. Locally, the company is best known for its remote-control aerial systems, which offer air and land surveillance without being heard or seen.
Stark’s Heron, a UAV with a 54-foot wingspan, is utilized in stealth drug enforcement operations.
The Commercial Dispatch reports Stark Aerospace plans to hire 15 people at the local plant by the end of the year.
The company, which produces unmanned aerial vehicles and plug-in electo-optic surveillance systems, currently employs 135 people at its 106,000-square-foot plant in the industrial park, near the GTRA.
