Daniel Button graduated from George Mason University and began working as a contractor with the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) on biosafety/biosecurity/bio risk and chemical security efforts throughout the Middle East. After the management, and development, of these programs turned to a knack for business development, Daniel was offered a position at Teledyne FLIR where he served as Senior BD Manager for the Integrated Solutions line – eventually moving to work with robotics and drone applications for federal non-DOD customers.  Most recently, Daniel became dual-hatted as both the Director of Business Development for federal non-DOD, and the Sales Director for the Octopus ISR Systems line, at Edge Autonomy – a San Luis Obispo, CA based company with offices in Herndon, VA.  Daniel lives in Arlington, VA where he enjoys politics and playing tennis.
