Yuneec, Mobilicom team for advanced UAS
Yuneec has entered into a strategic partnership with Mobilicom to offer new advanced UAS solutions to the enterprise and government market, the company announced on 6 March.
The cooperation will focus on the development of two advanced commercial and government UAS solutions, based on Yuneec's H520 hexacopter and Mobilicom’s SkyHopper and LTE technology. Both UAS solutions, which will be called H520 SkyHopper and H520 SkyHopper LTE, will incorporate cyber security and encryption, dedicated frequencies and interference-avoidance capabilities and will be offered as customisable, flexible and scalable end-to-end solutions.
The new UAS solutions will be capable of long-range, non-line-of-sight, beyond-line of sight and urban operations for applications including security, public safety, disaster relief and naval operations.
