    21 January 2021 – Mobilicom is pleased to announce it has delivered a second order of its SkyHopper PRO to FLIR.
    NASDAQ-listed FLIR is the global leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of thermal imaging infrared cameras. Based in the United States, the company manufactures thermal cameras and components for a wide variety of commercial and government applications.
    FLIR is moving into the unmanned vehicles market through its acquisition of Altavian, a manufacturer of small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) for defense and public safety customers, Endeavor Robotics, a leading manufacturer in unmanned ground systems (UGS) and combat-proven robots, and Aeryon, which makes high-performance drones for military, public safety and industrial operations. FLIR aims to become a top tier solution provider for robotics and drones and to capitalize on the US Department of Defense’s plan to increase spending on unmanned systems.
    FLIR placed an initial order with Mobilicom for its SkyHopper PRO devices in November 2020, after completing extensive tests of its data link solution over several months.
    Mobilicom received the second purchase order after FLIR successfully integrated SkyHopper PRO into its new drone platform.
    “We are really pleased to receive and deliver this follow-up order for FLIR, which validates that our technology meets the high standards set by this global leader,” said Mobilicom CEO Oren Elkayam.
    “With two orders in a relatively short timeframe, we look forward to integration and cooperation with FLIR as it increases its marketing and sales efforts of these new Mobilicom-enhanced drone systems to its growing customer base.”
