Aero Kinetics is incorporating into its new multi-rotor vertical takeoff and land (VTOL) unmanned aircraft system (UAS) GridMeNow's mobile, real-time tracking solutions.
Real-time event reporting and targeted communications will enhance Aero Kinetics' ability to deliver information to decision makers. The solution will also enable users to call, via cell phone, unmanned aircraft to their location.
According to Adam Tolk, CEO of GridMeNow, the partnership “creates the first-ever, on-demand UAS mobile ecosystem.”
Aero Kinetics says its focus on the critical infrastructure protection, disaster/emergency response and border security aligns a common cause with GridMeNow’s focus on safety and security.
“We will essentially become the Uber of unmanned systems, where UAS can be dispatched by mobile phone directly to your location. If you need aerial footage/support or medical supplies delivered to a remote location, GridMeNow will provide those capabilities,” explains W. Hulsey Smith, CEO of Aero Kinetics.
