PETAH TIKVAH, Israel - Airobotics Ltd. in Petah Tikvah, Israel announced that the company has been tapped by a government entity in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to provide additional drone systems and services. Airobotics Optimus urban drone infrastructure collects and analyzes aerial data via its automated drone infrastructure.
The Airobotics system is designed to operate as a network of smart drones linked to an urban control center and will function as a municipal infrastructure providing a variety of automated data solutions. The primary function of the deployed urban drone infrastructure is to shorten response times of security and rescue forces to emergency situations, supporting law enforcement and homeland security activities. The company is also examining drone parcel delivery and other smart city applications to be provided by the infrastructure.
The order is a follow-on order to initial systems and services that were provided and thoroughly reviewed by the customer during the Dubai Expo. During the event, the Airobotics successfully carried out thousands of operational drone flights without human intervention under challenging environmental conditions and in densely populated areas, to the end user's satisfaction.
Airobotics says it is active in the UAE and additional countries and has plans with other customers to establish permanent infrastructure which rely on fleets of automated drones that do not require on the ground human intervention to operate. The drones are able to operate as a taskforce that can simultaneously collect and provide critical information for a variety of customer requirements. The Airobotics drone infrastructure is designed for urban environments and strategic facilities that require immediate security, monitoring and emergency response.
Drone flights can be tasked to carry specific sensors, enabling every drone in the system to execute diverse tasks. The drones can be activated for complex longer-term operations. Flights are overseen by remote operators in a command-and-control center.
