About AISC

AISC is a boutique consulting firm specializing in the emerging threat posed by small unmanned aircraft. Our company is different in that we focus entirely on the threat from an adversary's perspective. Our unique background of aerospace threat intelligence, aerial target development and operation, and UAS development and operation ideally positions AISC to assess and play the role of bad actors employing drones. Government and private sector clients use our services to enhance their security postures as well as to test their defenses against the rapidly evolving drone threat.

AISC began operations in 2005. It is based in Northwest Florida.
