Watt’s products are used everywhere, from the sets of Hollywood to deliveries from retail giants; their drones are trusted by large-scale commercial enterprises where reliability can’t be an afterthought.

Watts Innovations is best known for its excellent hardware, with NDAA-compliant products such as the WATTS Smart LiPo for heavy lift aircraft that leverages DroneCAN, KONTACT, a handheld ground control station harnessing the power of QGroundControl, and the PRISM SKY, the latest iteration of their PRISM platform made for cargo.
