Sentient Blue, a start-up hybrid turbine company based in Syracuse, NY and Parma, Italy, became a member of Central New York International Business Alliance (CNYIBA) in early October 2019. CNYIBA works to increase the international sales of businesses across Central New York by connecting companies with mentors and providing expertise and guidance in international markets, financing, and more. Through this membership, Sentient Blue will strengthen its knowledge of and ability to export turbines internationally while maintaining and growing its strong presence in Central New York.

Sentient Blue manufactures a hybrid turbine for use in unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly known as drones. These turbines will increase flight time from about thirty minutes up to two hours. Sentient Blue will continue testing of the prototype in October 2019 and will deliver the first products to customers in approximately February 2020.
