Drone Forward Incorporated is a nonprofit organization with the goal of solidifying the link between education and future unmanned systems careers. Our mission is to strengthen the contributions of robotics and unmanned vehicle technologies to the US economy by providing youth in diverse American communities with educational opportunities and experiential gateways that lead to drone related careers of the future.
How we accomplish our mission: Drone Forward Incorporated (DFI) develops online courses, programs, and content to enable all peoples to have access to cutting edge knowledge on unmanned systems careers and entrepreneurial/business opportunities. Before developing an educational resource, DFI dedicates time to researching what types of individuals are being overlooked by current technology educational offerings and we develop our content to empower underrepresented individuals. In order to provide the majority of our content at no cost, DFI has developed The Drone Games, a pay-for-play competition where drone pilots from all over the world can compete against one another and hone their skills.
At the core, Drone Forward is a platform dedicated to educating people on the benefits of drones and unmanned systems. Without involvement from corporations, manufacturers, startups, and trailblazing individuals in the drone industry, our platform is unable to connect the local communities we seek to help with drone technology and STEAM education that is needed to grow the U.S. unmanned systems industry.
