Aerotenna, a microwave sensor and electronic system provider for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), has officially joined The Dronecode Project as a silver member.

Dronecode is a nonprofit organization founded in 2014 as a part of the Linux Foundation. The project encourages and coordinates the development of diverse open source UAV technology. Dronecode seeks to benefit the drone community by making cheaper and more reliable software to advance commercial and consumer UAVs, including the award-winning autopilot platform ArduPilot.

“We benefited a lot from the Ardupilot platform while testing our sensors,” said Dr. Zongbo Wang, CEO and co-founder of Aerotenna. “It is time for Aerotenna to give something back to the open-source community.”
