Ran is a leader and an influencer in the drone industry, working at the intersection of robotics, practical aviation and drone flight.

Adept at developing new markets, creating successful products, and building teams with extensive technological expertise, Ran co-founded Airobotics with Meir Kliner in 2014 with the mindset of creating an end-to-end, fully automated drone solution for collecting aerial data and gaining invaluable business insights.
