Midwest Unmanned Aerial Services LLC (Midwest UAS)

Our Story

Midwest Unmanned Aerial Services LLC was founded by Matt Westerhaus in 2015 to provide aerial imagery and spatial data to producers, agronomists, and precision ag professionals. It took two years, after the founding of Midwest UAS, for federal laws to catch-up to the increasing demand for a commercial Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) market. During this time, Matt has been busy building a simple idea, and the need for a niche to be filled, into a growing local business. Midwest UAS is fully licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration and insured. 
Matt graduated from Fort Hays State University in Hays, KS with a bachelors degree in Biology and Geosciences in December of 2013. He sources his agronomic knowledge from more than 10 years working in production agriculture, as well as precision ag services. Throughout those years he has gained experience ranging from geo-spatial data management to custom swathing across the midwest, as well as over six years spent on a local farm in Iuka, KS. 

Midwest UAS is being built on small-town ethics with the hope of growing with you, the customers we serve. 


WE LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU AND YOUR AGRICULTURAL ADVISORS
