*Employee headcount/FTE should be based upon the headcount of your immediate company, not a parent or affiliate company.

 By way of example, the employee/FTE count would work as follows:

  1. If a large global logistics company has a drone subsidiary, the employee/FTE count is based on the number of FTEs of the drone subsidiary.
  2. If a large drone company operates globally, the employee/FTE count is based on the worldwide FTE count of the entire company.
