New group gives one-stop drone service
27 / 09 / 2017
A new alliance of firms has been launched to bring connectivity to the global drone industry. Companies in the Drone Major Group will provide an integrated suite of products and services to the global drone industry at what it says is an important time in the development of standards and growth in the sector.
A new Drone Major portal will provide connectivity for the industry. The group says that until now there has been no single resource available to help navigate and procure an extensive range of drones and drone related services. It will facilitate the sale of drones and drone-related equipment while a membership scheme will also deliver added-value benefits and services including expert advice on the myriad choices available to the market. The platform’s current members comprise over 80% of the drone market, and include some of the world’s largest drone operators.
Another integral company will be SUAS Global (Surface, Underwater, Air, Space) network for the drone industry with over 40,000 global subscribers.
Founded by ex-army entrepreneur Robert Garbett, who comments: “The advance of the drone industry towards full connectivity is inevitable. How long this will take will depend on the will of the industry and its ability to develop robust standards; the willingness of regulators to enable new applications; the advancement of technology to tackle the challenges ahead; and the ability of the innovators to understand what technology is available to enable their vision of the future.”
