Meet Sven Jürß – CEO at microdrones GmbH
Mr. Sven Juerss, the CEO of microdrones GmbH in Germany, is caring about the daily business as well as advising the team to stay or change onto the right course.
Starting 2007 as a technician he was helping within the team to improve production processes and quality assurance. While also taking care about several other interlinked processes within the company, the shareholders finally decided to make him the CEO of microdrones in 2009.
Before that time he was studying applied computer science with electrical engineering and later on decided to switch to the “real world” and started a practical education as an Application Developer which he finalized in 2006. After working one more year at a software company where he finished his professional training as a software developer he got more and more addicted to the things his dad was doing at his freshly founded company microdrones. So he joined this visionary new team. It was the right decision as well as a huge responsibility for him as a comparably young guy. Starting at the age of 30 to lead a fully international high-tech company with tough regulations and export restrictions as well as several lobbies as “headwind” has been very demanding and challenging, but at the same time so unique and special in such way that he and his team are more than delighted to be one of first of such exceptionally growing new market.
The company microdrones GmbH was founded in October 2005. The team had worked on the development of numerous different types of aerial vehicles for many years before the foundation. Combining these skills and competencies was and still is our formula for success.
Our company objective is to develop and manufacture aerial vehicles based on VTOL/MAV (VTOL = Vertical Take Off and Landing, MAV = Micro Aerial Vehicle) in the sub-25kg class. The first product we designed and manufactured, the md4-200, was launched in April 2006. In 2010 the md4-1000 joined the product family and immediately set new standards as well as md4-200 did before.
With future products many further demanding solutions are being offered. The md4-3000 is the latest Quadrocopter from microdrones and again sets new standards with outstanding characteristics such as an aerodynamically optimized lifting body principle for longer ranges and flying speeds while even increasing payload to 3kg.
Drones will give us back mobility by caring about logistics and cargo. They will be the key to optimize our commodity flow without jamming our infrastructure on the ground for a pair of jeans or the latest smartphone. They are saving lives by being there earlier, assisting in disasters and emergencies by being able to act and help directly where they are needed. Over land, over the sea and beyond…
They are also there for us personally in our daily life. They will help us to secure the house. They will help us to look for our children’s playing in the woods. They will observe, they will perch and stare, they will do full surveillance. They might even take action against bad things to happen. I hope they will do soon. Some call it “big brother” – I call it a nanny, a watchdog or literally a “helicopter-mom”.
Are you afraid of drones taking decisions, drones taking action? Then you might not be compatible yet with all new technologies of today and future. It is not a problem of drones, it is a problem of mindset towards changes and towards new technologies. Did you ever realize how often your car already saved your live with perfectly right and extreme fast “decisions”? Give drones the chance to do the same? They will not disappoint you.
