“Our customers can fly more missions over longer distances with better safety and lower costs with the FlightOps OS,” stated FlightOps CEO Shay Levy.
“With our technology, we will be able to realise the concept of drone delivery as a last-mile option with large scale and low operating costs.” We expect our delivery segment’s software licence costs to hit $2 million in 2022 and $10 million in 2023.”
DroneUp is a global pioneer in drone flying services, modernising businesses with drone technology solutions that include everything from deliveries and inspections to safety and security.
