Mobilicom Limited (Mobilicom) is pleased to report on recent wins with its SkyHopper by Mobilicom solutions across numerous new and existing key customers, generating growing revenues within the business.

Multinational technology leader Samsung purchases SkyHopper PRO

Mobilicom has completed an initial sale of SkyHopper PRO to multinational technology leader and top global brand, Samsung. The sale to Samsung was for use in drones performing security operations and inspections for its factories. The sale to a company of the size and caliber of Samsung is a testament to the quality and capabilities of the SkyHopper solution offerings.

Orders received from six new customers across three continents

In addition to Samsung, SkyHopper has continued to foster new business across the globe, with six new customers in the US, EMEA and APAC.

In the US, Easy Aerial, a manufacturer of autonomous drone systems that serves organisations including the Department of Defense, has purchased the SkyHopper solution for use in Japan. Censys Technologies, also a US drone company, has purchased SkyHopper for use in inspection applications. SkyHopper products were also recently sold to Taiwan-based ITRI, a research company for government projects, Video Drone, a Finnish drone manufacturer, and Nanomotion, an Israeli manufacturer of advanced sensors.

Repeat sales to existing customers in the US, France and Israel

SkyHopper has continued to retain business with its existing customer base and has garnered repeat sales with several companies across the US, France and Israel.

US-based Swift Engineering has purchased additional SkyHopper units for upcoming projects, including for its business in Japan in which the solution will be used for electrical power inspections. SkyHopper was also sold to two French drone companies, with sales to Drone Volt to be used for civilian professional UAVs while Azur Drones will use SkyHopper in its leading surveillance UAVs. Israel-based DroneX has also placed orders for the SkyHopper solution.

SkyHopper becomes the first certified high power, long range, highly secured data link in Japan

Mobilicom received the Japanese high-power transmission certification for its SkyHopper data links, making SkyHopper the first certified high power, long range, highly secured data link in Japan. The high-power certification comes after SkyHopper received the low-power Japanese TELEC certification at the end of 2017, enabling the business to lock in sales for projects in Japan.

Commenting on the sales wins and progress being achieved in the SkyHopper by Mobilicom business, CEO Oren Elkayam said: “We are continuing to attract some of the biggest names in the drones and electronics sector to our SkyHopper offerings, and are subsequently growing this business as the commercial drone industry continues to expand. By achieving sales wins with these customers it positions SkyHopper well for the large ramp up we expect in the use of commercial drone systems, as the regulations will begin to allow for more drone applications and further testing.”
