About US

TopView is a UAS Engineering SME specializing in the integration of drones in business activities and in very low-level airspace

What started as a hobby…

Born in 2013 as a start-up to explore the drone (UAS) market, nowadays we are proudly part of European and Italian projects.

After the early design and realization of a light drone compliant with the first Italian RPAS regulation, we decided to change strategy, devoting our resources to payloads instead of drone design.

The first product coming out of the new strategy, PV_WATCH©, was presented in May 2014 at Solar Expo in Milan

… now is an international company

In 2015 we had the chance to participate in Horizon 2020 and introduce our research in the European context.

The Research programmes led us to strengthen our know-how in Drones and the Internet of Things while giving an international dimension to the company.

Since 2016, Topview has been involved in U-space research projects, contributing to the development of services and prototypes and also overseeing the related field testing and validation campaigns.

Today, we design and integrate UAS for specific applications and actively collaborate with large aerospace companies.
