Drone Aviation Holding Corp. (OTCQB: DRNE), a developer of specialized lighter-than-air aerostats and tethered drones, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Drone Aviation Corp., has received a follow-on order to support activities at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. The additional ground and aerial-based equipment will work together with a previously supplied mobile aerostat launcher system delivered in the third quarter of 2013.
The Drone equipment and aerostat system will be used to support Department of Defense research, engineering, test and evaluation efforts. The follow-on order substantially increases the capabilities of the persistent range instrumentation required by the customer for furthering weapons and platform engineering and design efforts. These programs include the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and related munitions testing and integration.
Felicia Hess, CEO of Drone Aviation Holding Corp., stated, "This follow-on order demonstrates the Air Force's ongoing commitment to our aerostat platform in support of their operations. The Eglin order also demonstrates our ability to customize our technologies to meet a customer's unique needs, ensuring that our aerostat system remains a highly capable, adaptable and cost effective tactical aerial platform. Moving forward, we are committed to expanding our existing governmental relationships and developing new customer relationships by leveraging our current customers as well as other branches of the military."
