From here, we see a unique opportunity to provide a broader set of scalable global solutions through the integration of proven technical platforms with the infrastructure, field services and regulatory expertise required to define the next phase of growth in the global Drone Economy."


"As drone technologies mature and drone regulations advance, we believe the drone sector is entering a very strong investment cycle. The first order of business for our OAS management team is to continue driving fleet adoption of our Optimus and Iron Drone Systems in the critical industrial, government and security and defense markets we target. With customer growth and a broader set of solutions we see a huge opportunity in the coming years to be a consolidator of leading technology developers and drone service providers to offer the broadest set of undeniably scalable solutions for global markets," Brock concluded.
