Mobilicom receives CE certification for SkyHopper product suite to drive business in the European market

  • Enables the SkyHopper family of products to be sold and marketed in the European Union
  • CE certification will progress business with European customers planning to integrate the SkyHopper solution
  • CE certification indicates SkyHopper’s compliance with the Radio Equipment Directive in the EU

27 November 2017 – Mobilicom Limited, developer of 4G Mobile MESH private networking technology, has received CE certification for SkyHopper. CE certification is a mandatory conformance marking for any product to be sold and marketed in the European Union.

CE certification will serve as a major advancement for the SkyHopper family of products, as it will enable Mobilicom to sell its solution to current customers in the EU such as Airborne Concept, who have already committed to integrating SkyHopper into their drone and/or robotics platform. The certification will also further SkyHopper’s expansion across with new customers in Europe, a region extremely important to Mobilicom as it contains some of the world’s most advanced UAV developers for whom SkyHopper’s solution caters.
In order to receive the CE certification, SkyHopper products must also comply with the Radio Equipment Directive, which applies to any communication equipment that transmits and/or receives radio waves.

“Europe has always been a very important market for Mobilicom and the SkyHopper entity. We have already established concrete relationships with commercial drone and robotics operators in this region who have committed to business with us,” Oren Elkayam, Mobilicom’s CEO stated.

“Furthermore, we see the potential that Europe has for impacting the commercial drone industry with advanced solutions by key drone manufacturers. CE certification will enable SkyHopper to serve as a key element in the European drone ecosystem.”

CE is the third conformance certification for the SkyHopper family of products. It has already obtained FCC certification in North America and TELEC in Japan, which in turn have provided SkyHopper with a broad customer base, as it continues to build momentum in expanding its product portfolio and service offerings. Given the size of this market and the drone development activity in Europe, CE certification will enable the SkyHopper entity to drive additional revenues.
