So, does anyone think AVAV has any sort of strategic advantage over the established defense contractors like Lockheed and Boeing in the UAV field? Boeing has some pretty impressive products of its own in this field, including robotic choppers that utilize a new lift technology called the canard rotor wing. It takes off like a chopper and flies like a plane.Also, as a play in the robotics field, does anyone prefer iRobot over UVAV? I like that iRobot has exposure to the consumer market, but its latest products like the Scooba just haven't caught on like the Roomba. Some negative reviews of the Scooba and its latest product (the idog or something) haven't been that complimentary. Any thoughts?I must say though, that I do like that the people running iRobot are engineers themselves and have a true passion for their companies products.Fool on.- Stone9
Although a newby, I am familiar with AVAV's product and know the DoD use of them. I am not familiar with iRobot products so i can't speat to them being better or worse functionaly or economically. AVAV contract line with the Army and now the Navy and Coast Guard only speak to it's ongoing relationship with these services. I can only expect the stock has no place to go but up as we possibly move to a country less willing to put service men and women in harms way look to protect our borders more closely.The market is for the smaller mini and micro UAVs where as the Lockheed and Boeings of the world are working on the larger platforms.
