About Verge Aero

Verge Aero’s mission is to make drone shows ubiquitous. The founding team of Chris Franzwa, Anthony Merlino, Tony Samaritano, and Nils Thorjussen have spent the past several years developing the technology and systems to power spectacular drone shows all over the world.

Verge Aero has come a long way from since its founding in late 2016. From originally working out of livings rooms, basements, and a garage, the company has grown to become the leading technology provider for professional drone shows. Verge Aero has been featured on events ranging from President-Elect Biden’s victory celebration to the Electric Daisy Carnival and now America’s Got Talent: Extreme.

We develop and manufacture everything necessary to easily create and fly sophisticated drone shows. This is our singular mission; it’s all we do. Much like with the Apple Mac, we believe that tight hardware-software integration yields the best overall experience. Our drones and control software are designed in tandem specifically for the purpose of flying drone shows.

We’re based out of Pennovation Works at the University of Pennsylvania, a hub of robotics activity. Contact us with any questions you might have. Drone shows are a brand new industry and we’re excited to explore the endless possibilities!
