Red Cat Holdings, Inc. , a hardware enabled software provider to the drone industry, announced that the core business strategy for its Enterprise segment would be “Remotely Flying Drones Anywhere.” This strategy reflects a further leadership decision by Dr. Allan Evans, its newly appointed Chief Operating Officer.
“Enterprise customers require not only drones but robust software for fleet and flight management,” stated Dr. Evans. “We have accumulated an array of software solutions which are enabled by our hardware platform of intelligent drones and digital video link. We believe our ability to remotely fly drones anywhere provides our customers with a significant reduction in labor, travel, and training when compared with any other enterprise system on the market. Our ongoing relationships with major industrial companies like GM and Aramco represent a clear affirmation of our business strategy.”
Over the past two years, the Company has completed three separate acquisitions which have expanded the portfolio of drone products, services and solutions offered to business customers through its Enterprise segment. These technologies enable drones to provide services and solutions more efficiently, faster, and at a lower cost.
- Flying Drones Anywhere. Skypersonic enables drones to “Fly Anywhere”. Its Skycopter is a miniature drone in a protective cage which is able to navigate restricted spaces, such as oil and gas pipes, while recording critical inspection data yet not damaging the pipe or the drone. Its Skylogic software system enables the drone to record the inspection data even though GPS communications are not available in such restricted environments.
- Fat Shark’s Shark Byte digital video transmitters provide the downlink technology which is essential to enabling the drone to transmit the data recorded by the Skylogic system to Dronebox.
- DroneBox will provide the core data storage and analytics platform that will enable enterprises to store the data from thousands of flights in an efficient manner. The FAA has determined that drones will need to record and maintain critical flight data similar to how airplanes are required to have black boxes.
- Remotely Flying Drones. Skylogic and our digital goggles integrate seamlessly to enable drones to be remotely flown from thousands of miles away. In January of this year, Rotor Riot’s President, Drew Camden, controlled a drone flying in Michigan while he was physically located in Orlando, Florida.
- The Enterprise Segment plans to engage key products and services from the Company’s Consumer Segment to fulfill its mission. In addition to the Fat Shark data link, a roster of professional pilots will be sourced through the large social media presence and network of Rotor Riot.
