Yuneec International and Mobilicom have entered into a strategic partnership to offer the enterprise and government market new advanced solutions for their unmanned aerial needs. The cooperation focuses on the development of two innovative commercial and government drone solutions, based on Yuneec´s commercially proven H520 hexacopter, well-known for its high reliability, safety and precision, and Mobilicom´s innovative SkyHopper and LTE technology. Both sUAS solutions, which will be called H520 SkyHopper and H520 SkyHopper LTE, will incorporate high-end cyber security and encryption, dedicated frequencies and interference-avoidance capabilities, and will be offered as customizable, flexible and scalable end-to-end solutions.
