Swift Engineering will simultaneously integrate Mobilicom’s MCU-30 and SkyHopper PRO solution into its Swift020 platform.
The deal marks the eighth design win for SkyHopper and Mobilicom has hit this objective four months earlier than originally forecast.
It positions the company strongly for important global market share, and therefore revenues, in the growing commercial and industrial drone sector.
Swift020 has the ability to take off and land anywhere, like other quad-rotor devices, while being able to transition to efficient fixed-wing forward flight without additional launch and recovery equipment.
Intended for long-range operation
It is intended for long-range operation services such as firefighting, rescue and surveillance and is due to start production later this year.
Based in California, Swift Engineering is a product development and manufacturing services company with more than 30 years’ experience designing and building high-performance vehicles.
It specialises in unmanned systems, autonomy, robotics and advanced composites.
The Swift020 is the culmination of more than three years of research and development, creativity and innovation in the unmanned aerial vehicle marketplace.
Also known for Northrop Bat
Swift is also known for developing and selling the Swift KillerBee, also known as the Northrop Bat.
Mobilicom designs, develops and markets solutions for mission-critical and remote mobile private communication networks without the need for, or use of, any existing infrastructure.
