About Sagetech Avionics

Sagetech Avionics, Inc. is an aerospace technology company that develops highly engineered FAA and DoD compliant products meeting manned aircraft specifications with very low size, weight and power (SWaP). Currently serving military and civil duty on most small to medium UAVs, Sagetech Avionics’ products enable safe flight in unmanned aircraft with situational awareness solutions built from mission-critical transponders, software, and related technologies.

Founded in 2019 through the acquisition of intellectual property from Sagetech Corporation, the dedicated and innovative team of 25 employees stayed in the Gorge area for several reasons including personal roots in the area, their support of area customers, as well as the technology talent pool and entrepreneurial traditions which support the growth of Sagetech Avionics. With strong backing from investors, Sagetech Avionics is currently hiring to support current and future growth.

Sagetech Avionics’ typical customers are UAS companies supporting U.S. DoD contracts, advanced commercial applications and new market opportunities such as UAM/AAM.  The company provides military and civil transponders, collision avoidance systems, detect and avoid solutions as well as custom software and support. Additionally, Sagetech Avionics supplies products to Gorge area organizations such as Insitu, partners with companies such as Collins (Cloud Cap), and supports supply chain companies such as Custom Interface and Columbia River Machine.

Working in concert with its extensive ecosystem of OEM customers, technology partners, and resellers to ensure that UAVs fly safer with Sagetech on board, Sagetech Avionics is expanding its technology platform to create comprehensive, certifiable systems such as detect and avoid solutions. Sagetech Avionics solutions are mission-proven and offer decades of program experience, certifications, and millions of flight hours and are designed to deliver maximum value over the life of an unmanned platform.

About the CEO


Sagetech Avionics’ CEO, Tom Furey came to the Gorge in early 2015 to work for Sagetech Corporation. He is originally from New York but has lived in all areas of the country, and his wife is from Los Angeles. He and his family enjoy activities that the Gorge offers such as mountain biking, windsurfing, wing foiling, and the dynamic music culture. At one point, Tom was convinced that he never wanted to live in the PNW, now he says he will probably never leave.
