Tony Pucciarella
Founder/CEO

Tony “Pooch” Pucciarella is a retired U.S. Navy Commander, serving as a Patrol Plane Mission Commander, Operational Test Pilot, VIP Pilot, and Aviation Engineering Duty Officer (AEDO). Before starting his career in the Navy, Tony received an aeronautical and astronautical engineering degree from The Ohio State University. He later received an MBA from Loyola University Maryland’s Executive Program. He is certified as an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) and is rated in aircraft ranging from the iconic B-25 to the fastest business jets flying today. Tony is also a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) with extensive experience in managing projects of all sizes and complexities. He is an active multi-rotor and fixed-wing UAS Pilot with extensive experience in small and large UAS operations.

Tony served as the Airspace Integration Certification Lead for the Navy’s Triton UAS program and led the development of the program’s safety case for Sense and Avoid (SAA). He is active in ongoing rulemaking and standards development as a member of the FAA’s UAST and ASTM’s F-38 Committee. Tony co-led a workgroup supporting the larger Detect and Avoid (DAA) group on FAA Special Committee 228 (SC-228).

With an established background in manned and unmanned aviation, engineering, aircraft systems integration, operational testing, and business, Tony was well-poised to address the growing critical needs gap in the UAS Industry. He assembled a team of highly skilled individuals in 2013 to design the architecture for what became AlarisPro – the most comprehensive UAS Operations and Maintenance program available.
