Central Coast entrepreneurs Deanne and Rowan Watkins have captured the attention of defence and civil aerospace markets with their breakthrough ‘StopRotor’ drone technology.
NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Small Business and Skills, John Barilaro, said the innovative new technology is a great example of small businesses in NSW creating new technology to meet the demands of modern workplaces.
“The StopRotor is a brilliant NSW invention designed to solve a longstanding limitation in aerospace and target the top end of the small UAV market,” he said.
“StopRotor Unmanned Aerial Systems have generated a lot of commercial interest particularly in areas of environmental surveys, coastal protection and supporting public safety.
“This is one of the most exciting new companies in NSW and was last month named one of Australia’s top five startups at a Mass Challenge start-up accelerator event in the United States, supported by the NSW Government through Jobs for NSW.”
