Flock gets on board to insure HEROTECH8’s automated drone-in-a-box technology


HEROTECH8 has confirmed that its drone-in-a-box technology now incorporates Flock’s data-driven insurance as standard.

The firm says the move makes it easy for any organisation to deploy safe, secure and fully insured autonomous UAVs.

HEROTECH8’s mission is to overcome the ‘one pilot per drone’ mindset which it believes is currently limiting the potential of UAS technology and hindering widespread adoption.

The company’s autonomous system aims to solve this challenge by automatically deploying and controlling the leading commercially available drones.

Commenting on the move, Edward Anastassacos, CEO of HEROTECH8 said: “We needed a forward-thinking and fast-to-respond insurance partner for such a visionary product and we found that in Flock. Our partnership allows any of our customers to quickly and effectively align insurance costs with operations and ensure all flying is fully compliant.”

While Flock’s sales & marketing lead, Sam Golden added: “It won’t be long before every major industrial facility is using drones to carry out a range of routine tasks. From surveillance and surveying gutters to acting as early warning systems for fires.

“We work with companies working on the edge of what’s possible. The work HEROTECH8 is doing definitely falls into that category.  We can’t wait to see what they do next and support them on their journey”
