Our Awards

“In January, I will have been with Parallax for 3 years. I assumed my current role as Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Business Concepts Director in fall 2022. I really enjoy this position, because I can use my U.S. Air Force operational experience in the UAS community and my acquisition experience for bringing a Control Station to the warfighter. Parallax is an awesome place to work because of the team and leadership. We've got great people and leaders who care. Thats a winning combination for both the customer and the Parallax team.” - Scott Swanson, Director, UAS Business Concepts
