ABSI Aerospace & Defense Moves Operations to Airport

News Release, S Hunt Aero

ABSI Aerospace & Defense, UAS-centric services, training, and T&E company located in the Patuxent River region, is pleased to announce that the company’s local operations are moving to a new office at the St. Mary’s County Regional Airport.

The new location will allow ABSI to expand operations to include easy usage of their modified Valentin Taifun aircraft utilized for chase and imaging work. The aircraft sits in a nearby hangar, making it easily accessible to the team.

“We’re excited to be part of the incredible growth taking place throughout St. Mary’s County. Our move to the airport will allow us to expand support for our clients throughout the mid-Atlantic region and better support our team throughout the US,” said Chris Sacco, chief executive officer of ABSI. “The larger space also gives us the room we need to offer a hardware and software integration lab and expand our support for SecondSky, our Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) tool designed to assist with the myriad challenges associated with the integration of new autonomous systems technologies. We will also be expanding our ability to offer logistics support for small unmanned aircraft systems”

“ABSI’s addition to the airport community is exciting,” said Ken Reed, managing member of S. Hunt Aero LLC, the facility investor/developer. “With the addition of yet another innovative aviation company, we are on the way to establishing a true center of excellence for aviation and unmanned test and operations in St. Mary’s County. ABSI is the perfect addition to those firms that have found the airport environs a great place to base their businesses.”

ABSI Aerospace & Defense expects to take possession of the new space in mid-August and will celebrate by opening their doors to current and prospective clients, allowing them to see the new space and gain a better understanding of the firm’s capabilities.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
