Dronamics has expanded its R&D and manufacturing teams with the addition of three industry veterans who will help the company “scale up its development and production in preparation for the launch of their commercial same-day delivery service with the Black Swan UAV this year”.

Current strategic advisor Andy Cox is transitioning into a management role joining as director systems and avionics.

He is based in the UK and has experience with high altitude programmes, including the development and manufacture of the crew capsule for the Breitling Orbiter III, the first non-stop flight around the world in 1999.

Atanas Gagov is joining the company as director of engineering and project management. Atanas, who will be based in Sofia, Bulgaria has experience as an engineering leader with brands, such as Apple, Tesla, and most recently Waymo, the Alphabet company developing autonomous automotive technologies.

Finally, Luis Enrique de la Iglesia y Gotarredona is joining Dronamics as director of manufacturing. He has worked for companies such as Goodrich Aerospace, Pilatus Aircraft, Daher-SOCATA, Mitsubishi Aircraft, ABB-Alstom and MTorres, among others.

“Their experience and knowledge will be vital for our growing manufacturing and R&D efforts globally. With a fast-growing team of more than 120 people involved in the R&D, manufacturing and operations, and a growing number of global technology partners, we are super excited for 2022,” said Svilen Rangelov, chief executive and co-founder of Dronamics.

in December, the company revealed its first production Black Swan drone as it prepares for launch.
