French UAV firm Drone Volt hopes to shock the usindustry with a high-wattage partnership with Stampede, a serious distributor of built-in AV/IT know-how options. The New York-based agency will market Drone Volt service craft predominately to the safety, agriculture, cinematography, structure, building, mapping and mining sectors.
“Drones continue to become a vitally important part of a complete solution in a growing number of vertical markets,” Stampede President and COO Kevin Kelly mentioned. “As [Drone Volt expands] their market focus from Europe to the Americas, we will help them achieve all of their long-term growth objectives by providing them with the sales, training, and customer service support they need to make their product line a mainstay of our resellers’ portfolio of offerings.”
One of Drone Volt’s extra common merchandise is the Hercules 5 UF – a UAV designed for safety work and outfitted with a zoom-stabilized and night time vision-enabled digital camera.
The Hercules 10 includes a high-pressure nozzle for floor cleansing and web site inspection. Last yr, Drone Volt unveiled the Janus 360, a drone devoted to 360-degree virtual-reality content material manufacturing.
“The market demand for service drones is growing and expanding at a dramatic rate around the world, and is even outpacing the overall drone industry growth,” Drone Volt Executive VP of Sales and Marketing Daniel Roe mentioned. “We believe that partner is Stampede because they are uniquely prepared to handle all the diverse markets we represent. This partnership is a great opportunity for us to expand our drone business in the most important territory in the world. We’re excited to be working with their organization.”
Drone Volt has shocked the UAV world this previous yr with a number of key bulletins. In December, the corporate launched an agricultural drone able to spraying crops. The modified Hercules mannequin boasts a sensible autopilot with two “solution-spreading” arms. At CES 2017, Drone Volt introduced manufacturing of the Janus VR-Bot, a “ground-based drone … for VR and cinema content creation which may also be used also in construction, architecture and for media applications like virtual tours.”
