Drew T. Smith


Veteran - Army Recon Scout

Federal Service - Department of Veterans Affairs, Office of Information Technology



Lone Star Drone started as an idea to help Veterans. At the end of Drew Smith's last deployment, several soldiers were talking about what jobs or careers they were going back to. With so few of them having a viable job to go back to, Drew decided to start a company that would leverage the training and skillsets they had. As a recon scout, Drew used drones to find and gather information on the enemy. Why not use the same thing to collect data on thermal, topographic, and infrastructure assets? And so, Lone Star Drone was born. 

Since then, Lone Star Drone has provided services for a wide range of clients and industries. From Maryland to California, Switzerland to Australia, Lone Star Drone has been there and done it all. 

Our primary goals are simple: to provide the most secure data experience while delivering the best data possible to our clients. Lone Star Drone uses cutting edge drones, professional software, highly experienced pilots, and keeps everything in tip top shape for whatever our clients need us to photograph, survey, or inspect.
