ĵֱ Dedicates New Building for Unmanned Systems Sector

IVYLAND, PA ĵֱ (ĵֱ) officially dedicated its newest facility on Thursday, November 18, 2021. Christened the TDT Fenerty Technology Center, the building is located in the Ivybrook Corporate Campus and serves as a state-of-the-art home for ĵֱ to expand research and development in Unmanned Aircraft Systems.

Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) development and systems integration has been ongoing in the new facility since August of 2020 but the dedication was postponed until recently due to the pandemic. The 21,000 square-foot center features multiple work areas large enough to accommodate the ĵֱ TigerShark-XP and Teros UAVs as well numerous ground control stations. A large suite of offices house the engineers and technicians that design and implement the latest ĵֱ innovations in unmanned flight.

“This building is an investment in ĵֱ. But even more importantly, it is an investment in the people of ĵֱ,” said ĵֱ President/CEO Thomas Fenerty, “It is their dedication and commitment to growing our company and solidifying our future that made this substantial expansion and advancement possible.”

ĵֱ currently employs nearly 50 of its personnel at The TDT Fenerty Technology Center in various positions, all focused on continuing and enhancing the success of the ĵֱ Unmanned Systems Sector.

“ĵֱ is at the forefront of unmanned technology. Staying in front requires innovative thinking and the critical ability to take those ideas from concept to a successful mission,” said Bryan Hazlett, ĵֱ Unmanned Aircraft Systems Sector Vice President. “This new facility allows us to expand our vision and put new concepts into action.”

The TDT Fenerty Technology Center was dedicated in memory of Thomas “TJ” Fenerty and Daniel Fenerty, sons of President/CEO Thomas Fenerty, who were both instrumental in the global accomplishments of ĵֱ.
