‘We’re still discovering how to use them’: Drones and the $145 billion market opportunity

Oren Elkayam, Mobilicom’s chief, believes the industry has matured.

“In the recent three to four years, the industry has been busy developing technologies that would overcome the barriers that enable the deployment of drones,” he told Stockhead.

“Regulatory bodies now have enough confidence in deploying drones, that we will see it start to pay off for companies like ours which operate in the drone space.”

“Mobilicom is positioned very well,” Duriska says. “They have a vast range of hardware products and they can get a big portion of the drone pie because of that.”

Duriska says discussions with drone manufacturers have revealed that the small cap company is held in high regard.

It is working with some big names, such as airline making giant Airbus and Chinese aircraft manufacturer Yuneec, which sells more than one million units annually and is part owned by tech behemoth Intel.

World premiere: Yuneec and Mobilicom present their flexible high-end security drone solution H520 SkyHopper (LTE) at AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019 in Chicago

Groundbreaking drone solution for enterprises, federal authorities and organizations with security tasks

Kaltenkirchen, May 2, 2019 – Yuneec, one of the leading developers and manufacturers of commercial and private drones, and Mobilicom, a global provider of high-security communications solutions, present their jointly developed drone solution H520 SkyHopper at AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019 in Chicago just a few weeks after announcing their strategic partnership.

The H520 SkyHopper is the first of two new high-end drone solutions that the two companies are currently co-developing for the government, federal and commercial markets, and which will be launched shortly. Both UAVs are ideal for long-range, non-line-of-sight, beyond-line-of-sight and urban operations, and offer outstanding price/performance for unmet customer needs.

The H520 SkyHopper combines Yuneec’s proven six-rotor H520 drone platform, which has been successfully established in the commercial mass market for many years, with Mobilicom’s innovative SkyHopper technology, which stands for secure data transmission, high-end cyber security and encryption and has already been validated by the Israeli Ministry of Defense and other government organizations.

 

The comprehensive security package of the H520 SkyHopper includes high-end encryption, dedicated and ISM frequency ranges, software-defined radio with secure data links and ISM jamming resistance. In addition, the drone solution minimizes backdoor cyber risks.

 

Furthermore, the H520 SkyHopper is a flexible end-to-end solution with practical add-ons for teams on land and sea, including ruggedized controllers and remote viewing terminals, networking, relay and more.
