Commercial drone company Volansi said today it has named former Air Force acquisition chief Will Roper chief executive.

He succeeds Hannan Parvizian, the company's founding CEO, who will become chief technology officer and product architect.

Earlier this year, Roper joined Volansi's board of directors.

Volansi specializes in autonomous, vertical take-off and landing middle-mile drone delivery services and has been awarded a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research award. The company said it was also named an official vendor of the Air Force's Skyborg Vanguard program.
