About Us

Bringing Technology and Science Together

Leading Edge Aerial Technologies (LEAT) is a company focused on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), commonly referred to as drones. We’ve been inventing droplet analysis and aerial application technologies for over 35 years and have worked with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on aerial spraying via UAS since the beginning. Our team understands the regulatory issues at the federal and state levels to the point that a droplet deposits on a crop, in the water, or on an insect. Today, we design, engineer, manufacture, and support our PrecisionVision UAS in the United States. We also offer consultations and contract services for aerial applications via UAS.

Leading the Way in UAS Aerial Applications

The discipline of understanding aerial application is key to our success. We were the first company to receive certification and perform UAS spray applications for agricultural products in vector control, forestry, agriculture, noxious weed control. In February 2015, we filed our first FAA 333 Exemption for the use of UAS in mosquito control for the specific purpose of aerial imagery and applications. A 3-year labor-intensive approval process began. In 2017, LEAT received all the required approvals from the FAA and several states. LEAT provides the most reliable, knowledgeable, and experienced UAS aerial spray application services in the United States. When you are ready to Take Flight - we’re here to help!
