Ondas Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:ONDS) (“Ondas”), a leading provider of private industrial wireless networks and commercial drone and automated data solutions and Skyfire Consulting (“Skyfire”) (skyfireconsulting.com), the most trusted and experienced public safety UAS consulting group, announced today that Skyfire and Ondas’ business unit Ondas Autonomous Systems (OAS) are partnering to bring advanced autonomous drone solutions and services to public safety and Drone First Responder (DFR) markets in the United States. The partnership will leverage Skyfire’s deep domain experience and customer relationships as well as the technology and expertise of OAS’ business units American Robotics, Inc. (“American Robotics”) and Airobotics LTD (“Airobotics”), which include Airobotics’ automated drone platform, the Optimus System.
An end-to-end, fully automated uncrewed aerial system (UAS), Airobotics’ Optimus System was designed to enable on-demand 24/7 aerial data operations in complex environments. The platform includes all hardware and software components required for safe and efficient data capture, distribution, and analytics. Optimus is in its final stages of completing Type Certification by the FAA, which will enable Airobotics and Skyfire to fly BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) in expanded, complex operational environments.
“Skyfire has worked with hundreds of police departments across the United States to develop comprehensive drone programs with the drones that were available,” said Matt Sloane, Skyfire founder and CEO. “Many of those departments are looking for ways to remove the pilot from the rooftop and let them focus on doing their jobs. The Optimus drone capabilities, with its pending Type Certification, will be the automated drone solution of choice for these agencies.”
