Raven Aerostar Educates Local Innovators on Aerospace and Defense


Sean Turgeon, Business Development Manager, presented to a crowd of innovators and early adopters from South Dakota businesses and communities.

He spotlighted Raven Aerostar’s aerospace and defense products of stratospheric balloon platforms, radar sensors, and tethered aerostats. These products, along with the services of Aerostar are used to connect, protect, and saves lives.

Feedback surrounding the event was very positive, with one attendee commenting: I didn’t truly understand Raven’s business before today, now I do, and it’s fascinating.

Thank you for delivering a compelling presentation on Raven’s advances in balloon technologies. Raven is such an important player not only in Sioux Falls but internationally, as well. I’m so glad you could highlight the great work happening there. The feedback was nothing but positive on your piece .
