Technical Product Manager
Markus Patas studied industrial engineering at TU Berlin and wrote his bachelor thesis on "Possibilities and challenges of future drone applications". As a hobby, he built and flew his own drones, first larger ones for videography, then smaller ones for racing. After his master's degree, he worked for a few years as a consultant until he joined Skyseed to develop the needed technical and procedural solutions for its seeding activities.
Drone Agnostic Delivery Stations make deliveries by drones safer, more secure, and deliver handsfree chain of custody from A to B
As a former Army Ranger with the 75th Ranger Regiment, Ryan learned the lessons of working under extreme conditions to accomplish the mission. After leaving the military following several overseas deployments, he turned to entrepreneurship to be a leader in the drone industry. He began working on drone delivery in 2013, filing some of the first ever drone delivery patents in many countries around the world. He has 28 granted patents so far in the drone delivery space, where he is listed as the lead inventor, with over two dozen more patents pending. He has a degree in Economics from Northeastern Illinois University and his MBA from North Central College.
