AV has delivered more than 6,000 small UAS to U.S. Armed Forces and allied military forces worldwide and its Raven has logged nearly 25,000 flight hours with the U.S. Army alone.

While Commander of the Naval Supply Systems Command, Stone managed the Navy's largest fulfillment/supply chain organization of 25,000 employees and $8 billion in sales. He also led a global network of customer support operations, aircraft/ship/submarine inventory control points, and the Navy's supply chain and financial software development organization. Stone was responsible for improving supply chain performance for more than 1 million annual orders from U.S. combat operations and 21 foreign navies.

Stone said, 'This is an exciting opportunity to apply my experience and knowledge to such a dynamic and innovative company. I look forward to helping expand AV's logistics activities and continue the world class support that it has provided to its customers.'
