AVIDRONE Aerospace and PRODRONE announce partnership
Canadian UAS technology company AVIDRONE Aerospace Incorporated has secured an investment and formed a business alliance with a Japanese professional UAS manufacturer called PRODRONE Co. Ltd.
In an effort to revolutionize the commercial and industrial markets with “new ways to gather data, increase security, and deliver goods,” the two companies will combine their decades of UAS research and development to manufacture UAS that are innovative, as well as custom autopilot systems.
The companies say that their products will be able to transport items weighing between 0.5 kilograms to over 250 kilograms at speeds approaching 200 kilometers per hour, thanks to a “specially developed industrial autopilot system and drone designs.”
Such a major increase in flight performance in both speed and endurance, combined with secure flight control and simple user interface technology, will be revolutionary, according to the companies.
“Our collaboration with AVIDRONE Aerospace will allow us to manufacture highly functional, innovative products that have not been available in the marketplace until now,” says Mr. Kono, CEO of PRODRONE.
“With AVIDRONE's capabilities, we can respond with solutions allowing customers' special requests to become possible.”
Scott Grey, CEO of AVIDRONE Aerospace, comments, “our extensive R&D and aviation background allowed us to create the most advanced flight control and helicopter UAV designs. We're offering something no one has seen before. Our new partnership with PRODRONE extends our brand globally; we're thrilled.”
