Founded in 2015, Straight Up Imaging (SUI) has centered our engineering and manufacturing efforts on presenting the latest technology in professional-use small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS). Our development has aligned with the needs of public safety, energy, agriculture, surveying, and construction. We strive to enable the use of robotic aerial systems in its most desired form; as a tool to accomplish higher production, greater efficiency, and increased safety. We are based in San Diego, CA, and proudly design, assemble, and support our products in the United States of America.


“Our first requirement was flight time exceeding 35-minutes with the SeekOps payload - a goal consistently met during rigorous field operations while deployed to the Bakken Shale oilfield. The SUI Endurance continues to meet SeekOps’ high standards through inspection operations for multiple energy industry customers.”

Dr. Andrew Aubrey, CEO SeekOps Inc.

We are a founding member of the San Diego Industrial Drone Consortium (SDIDC).


Our mission with SDIDC is ​to foster growth of the San Diego drone industry by leveraging collective resources, experience and capabilities to pursue defense and commercial opportunities, develop cross-industry partnerships in an effort to increase resiliency among drone companies, cultivate a highly qualified workforce, promote the development of drone technology, advocate for the development of UAS test sites and infrastructure, and support the integration of drones in the National Airspace System (NAS) to support resiliency in the defense supply chain.
