AeroVironment Inc is engaged in the design, develop, produce, support and operate a technological portfolio of products and services. It supplies unmanned aircraft systems, UAS, tactical missile systems and related services within the US DoD.

AeroVironment supplies unmanned aircraft systems, tactical missile systems, and other related services to government agencies (primarily within the United States Department of Defense). The systems can help with security, surveillance, or sensing, and provide "eyes in the sky" without needing an actual person, or driver, in the sky. Additionally, it supplies charging and power-down systems and services for electric vehicles. Commercial, consumer, and government customers help produce sales in the energy space. The company has two operating segments: unmanned aircraft systems (approximately three fourths of revenue), and efficient energy systems. Sales to non-U.S. customers account for roughly one fourth of total sales.
