According to the DOE the small business voucher provide $20 million to US companies to ‘connect private sector needs with corresponding laboratory science and technology capabilities, and target small businesses where engagement with the laboratories can add significant value.’
 
SkySpecs CEO Danny Ellis said, “SkySpecs is thrilled to be working with the researchers at Sandia National Laboratories to advance the inspection capability of automated drones. Sandia’s cutting-edge inspection techniques combined with our technology will dramatically improve wind turbine inspections. The SBV program allows SkySpecs to access Sandia’s expertise and ultimately produce a more powerful solution because of our collaboration. Our team is looking very forward to the opportunity.”
