Automated drone startup Airobotics has closed a $30m (£23m) Series D round of funding, bringing its total capital raised to $101m (£79m).
The new round of funding will be used to further scale Airobotics operations in the United States and Australia.
Airobotics automated solution is the first drone worldwide certified to fly without a human operator.
Pavilion Capital is leading the round, joining a list of prominent investors, including BlueRun Ventures, Charles River Ventures and OurCrowd, as well as additional private investors.
Airobotics recently launched its North American headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, where the company will run all North America, South America and Central America operations.
The Scottsdale office will become the company’s global headquarters as Airobotics continues to scale. The funding will also be used to continue servicing the mining industry and other industrial facilities globally.
Ran Krauss, CEO and co-founder of Airobotics, said: “We have a strong business pipeline and to keep up with demand for our technology, we are continuing to expand operations across the countries in which we operate, specifically our new headquarters in the U.S.
“Additionally, the new funding will drive our continuous work with aviation authorities to obtain Beyond Visual Line of Sight certificate of waiver in every geography we operate in, including in the U.S.”
The startup has been experiencing a hyper-growth stage, raising $101M in funding to date in four rounds of funding.
