Global UAV Technologies Ltd. a diversified and vertically integrated drone technology company, recently secured two separate Unexploded Ordnance (“UXO”) survey contracts through different end-customers in the United States. The surveys, one of which has already been completed, are being flown by Global UAV’s wholly owned subsidiary, Pioneer Aerial Surveys Ltd., (“Pioneer Aerial”), using the Company’s UAV-MAG™ technology.
Pioneer Aerial has previously conducted UXO surveys at Pearl Harbor, HI. The UXO survey projects utilize the same drone-based UAV-MAG™ survey technology the Company uses for mining and exploration related geophysical surveys. The UAV-MAG™ technology incorporates the GSMP-35U sensor, an ultra-light-weight potassium magnetometer from Gem Systems Inc. When flown with a UAV, Pioneer Aerial can conduct autonomous survey flights in an ultra-high resolution, low altitude pattern which makes UXO detection possible. The contracts are with both repeat and new customers representing the second and third UXO contracts for the Company.
Pioneer Aerial has been expanding into the UXO survey market with the drone-based UAV-MAG™ survey technology. Organizations, such as the Army Corps of Engineers, are now requesting and requiring survey technology innovation to be a component of UXO survey solutions for those bidding on the projects. The UAV-MAG™ technology has been successful in allowing Pioneer Aerial to expand into the new market opportunity.
“The UAV-MAG™ survey technology we developed is proving to be versatile and reliable. It has quickly gained Pioneer Aerial a reputation as one of the world-leading drone-based geophysical survey companies. The UXO detection and survey industry is in high demand for innovative detection and mapping solutions, giving rise to increased interest in our services and technology as a result.” stated Michael Burns, CEO, Global UAV Technologies Ltd.
