Robotic Skies LLC, a provider of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) maintenance around the globe, has raised a round of venture capital financing. The investment round was led by Kickstart Seed Fund of Salt Lake City and included participation by Sun Mountain Capital of Santa Fe, N.M.
The company says the capital will accelerate the expansion of its maintenance network for high-end commercial drones. Robotic Skies is a brokered global network of more than 150 independently owned and operated repair stations providing maintenance on commercial unmanned systems. Launched in spring 2014, the company markets its services to commercial UAS manufacturers and enterprise fleet operators.
“We are very excited that this group of experienced investors recognizes the unique solutions that Robotic Skies brings to the emerging unmanned aerospace market and decided to join our team,” comments Brad Hayden, CEO of Robotic Skies. “We look forward to accessing our capital partners’ pools of technical talent and expertise as we grow our network’s supporting infrastructure.”
Dalton Wright, partner at Kickstart Seed Fund, adds, “The team at Robotic Skies is addressing a fundamental need in the surging drone economy and has the opportunity to become the global leader in repair, maintenance and services for commercial operators and manufacturers of advanced UAS.”
