Drone Aviation Holding Corp., a developer of specialized lighter-than-air aerostats and tethered drones, has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Drone Aviation Corp., has delivered a follow-on order of aerial and ground-based equipment to Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. This delivery is the latest of multiple military customers who continue to actively utilize the Company’s mobile aerostat launcher systems as part of their ongoing operations.
Drone Aviation’s aerostat based BiB and WASP aerial systems are currently utilized by various Department of Defense (DoD) customers including the U.S Army Space & Missile Defense Command (SMDC), and the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO). The DoD owned WASP systems are currently involved in planning for various system integration exercises in 2015 while the BiB systems are actively deployed for troop training during rotational exercises at Folk Polk, LA. The additional aerostat based product implementation at Eglin AFB increases the capabilities of the persistent range instrumentation required by the customer for furthering weapons and platform engineering and design efforts.
“Eglin Air Force Base is just one of a number of Department of Defense customers that are actively deploying our aerostat platforms in support of their operations which will continue to drive our growth,” stated Felicia Hess, CEO of Drone Aviation Holding Corp. “As we enter 2015, we see a number of exciting military, governmental and commercial opportunities for our unique, cost effective tethered aerial platforms and are working on new products and capabilities that we fully expect will demonstrate the true value of our technology.”
