Under the agreement, Remotec is the sole reseller of these products to the U.S. market for first responders and law enforcement. The companies also are working to integrate Remotec's unmanned ground vehicles and AirRobot's aerial systems to create new ground/air capabilities that meet a wide range of operational requirements.
As part of the agreement, Remotec is also providing service, maintenance and technical support for all AirRobot systems in the U.S.
AirRobot produces electric-powered multicopter systems that can carry a payload of up to 7 pounds and can fly for as long as 50 minutes. The systems can also carry a wide range of payloads – including multispectral cameras and recorders, synthetic aperture radar, and gas and chemical sensors – and as many as three payloads simultaneously.
AirRobot systems, which have been in production since 2004, are based on the company's proprietary flight management system and are used for military, public and commercial applications worldwide.
