During his employment with Simulator System International, Mr. Carey was the National Sales Manager and worked directly with the United States Navy to develop one of the first remote controlled, hazmat, and thermal imaging robotic platforms in the country. This platform was designed from the ground up based on the specific needs of the United States Navy’s Emergency Response Division. Along with the Navy, Mr. Carey worked with the Los Angeles Police Department, the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Office, the San Diego Police Department, the Jacksonville Florida Sheriff’s Office, and the Dallas SWAT Team to assemble their inventory of unmanned tactical robotic platforms to aid in hostage negotiation and high risk warrant service. While working with these agencies, Mr. Carey trained hundreds of officers and personal on the wireless platforms and the technology needed to safely and effectively utilize the equipment.
Mr. Carey was recruited to lead the implementation of real-time kinematic survey grade wireless network in Oklahoma. This platform grew from two locations to over 50 locations across the state allowing survey and construction companies the ability to work wirelessly on any job site at any location. While in this position, Mr. Carey trained and equipped the second largest construction contractor allowing them to complete a multi-million-dollar highway resurfacing project which in turn allowed them to grow into several off-site locations adding dozens of employees to their payroll
In 2013, Mr. Carey started Big Dog Roofing and Construction and took the company to over $1million in sales after only 13 months of business. Since then the company has more than doubled in sales and had opened a franchise location in Texas. While leading Big Dog Roofing, Mr. Carey saw the need for safer and more efficient ways to serve the customers, so he implemented a drone inspection service that turned into a drone business called Helo Perspective.
