The company received the Ontario Entrepreneurship Trophy, a cash prize, and interest from two venture capital firms looking to invest a total of two million dollars.

The Aeryon Scout is shaped like a four leaf clover, operates silently and takes of and lands vertically. It can operate in confined spaces indoors and outdoors, making the Scout ideal for covert operations in urban environments. The UAV has a range of 3KM and a max altitude of 500M.
