Mobilicom Limited (Mobilicom, ASX: MOB) has completed the development stage of the new Ground Controller Station (GCS) solution for an un-named leading drone supplier, with the project now scaled up from its original scope.
Mobilicom delivered two series of prototype units for customer inspection/review, and completed integration with the customer’s drones and fixed wing UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) systems, and passed the necessary reviews.
Mobilicom CEO, Oren Elkayam, said commercial manufacturing of the solution is now commencing and the company expects to make its first commercial batch delivery in Q3 CY2020.
Mr Elkayam said the customer selected Mobilicom as its vendor of choice for tactical drones and small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (sUAV), with Mobilicom supplying commercial Ground Control Stations under the contract.
The customer intends to offer Mobilicom’s new GCS solution with all of its drones and sUAV platforms projects worldwide. Mobilicom expects additional orders in due course.
The customer has revenues of more than $3.6 billion and is an international high technology company engaged in a wide range of defense, homeland security and commercial programs throughout the world. It is one of the largest suppliers of drones, sUAV and robotics outside of the US.
We are pleased this highly regarded company in the drone and unmanned systems sector has defined our solution as its building block for all future small UAV and drone projects, and demonstrates our capacity to meet the high specification needs of our clients,” Mr Elkayam said.
