About Us

TopView is a System Engineering SME.

Born in 2013 as start-up to explore the drone (UAS) market, nowadays we are proudly part of European and Italian projects.

After the early design and realization of a light drone compliant with the first Italian RPAS regulation, we decided to change strategy, devoting our resource to of payloads instead of drone design.

The first product coming out from the new strategy, PV_WATCH©, was presented in May 2014 at Solar Expo in Milan

In 2015 we had the chance to participate in Horizon 2020 and introduce our research in the European context.

The Research programmes led us to strengthen our know-how in Drones and Internet of Things, while giving an international dimension to the company. 

Since 2016 we contribute to U-space definition, the set of new services designed to support safe, efficient and secure access to airspace for large numbers of drones.

For us excellence means to seek the solution which combines usefulness, simplicity and synergy with existing systems.

We use agile methods, following the fast prototyping approach: interact with the custom from the first day to quickly design the prototype and the pre-series of the solution found.

The participation in research programmes strengthen our technical know-how and contemporaneously give us an international dimension.



We build our relations on diligence, fairness and trust.

You can always count on us to create a solid network, able to generate value and mutual opportunities in the long term.

We reward the enthusiasm of our young talents, giving the chance to freely express their potential in an international-oriented company.

This purpose relies on a continuous collaboration with the universities of our region, to foster the inclusion of young students in the labour market.
