Epazz, Inc.’s holdings company ZenaDrone, Inc., has signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the US Naval Research Laboratory (USNRL), focused on advancing Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) technology.

ZenaDrone is working with the US Navy to test and develop UAS Technologies in a hostile environment. The agreement will enable the testing of ZenaDrone 1000 with US Navy operations.

ZenaDrone is advancing its landing gears to take off and dock on US Navy ships. The company is developing a new heavy payload propulsion technology specifically tailored to USSOCOM end-user mission requirements. This move represents a pivotal step towards integrating advanced drone capabilities within military applications.

ZenaDrone’s VTOL drone technology has distinguished itself by delivering extended flight times with heavy payloads using its patented technology. This advancement proposes to bring transformative changes to multiple logistics streams, notably in healthcare, tactical support, military applications, and beyond.

The CRADA represents a formalized partnership between federal research capabilities and the dynamic innovation of the private sector. It is a crucial instrument for aligning ZenaDrone’s objectives with the cutting-edge research and development programs at the US Naval Research Laboratory.

“ZenaDrone technology can assist our soldiers and troops in combat zones. We are excited to have the chance to explore use cases such as transporting essential medical supplies in harsh environments, either with our heavy-vertical-lift UAV platform or by increasing the range of existing aircraft. This year, the ZD1000 will greatly improve as it integrates with military technology,” said Shaun Passley, Ph.D., CEO of Epazz Inc.

According to ZenaDrone, the partnership marks a significant milestone in the company’s mission to drive innovation within the aerospace industry. The CRADA will help leverage both organizations’ strengths, potentially revolutionizing drone technology applications and acknowledging Epazz’s commitment to collaborative enhancement of its product offerings.
