Global UAV Technologies announced today that it has taken its first steps towards expanding its services and sales operations to Africa.
The company has revealed that it is currently in discussions with several national-scale companies that are interested in UAV based geophysics surveying, security solutions, agriculture and LiDAR services and systems.
Global UAV is also pursuing opportunities in Mexico with private sector companies.
It said that the African and Mexican markets offer it “significant opportunities” due to high levels of demand and a lack of UAV availability.
Michael Burns, CEO of Global UAV, said: “There has been a significant increase in the demand and interest in our products and services from emerging markets such as South America, Mexico and Africa. We are entering these markets with strong business relationships using a low-risk approach by developing strategic partnerships with established, in-country companies.”
Mr Burns added that the company remained focused on “accelerating” the growth of its regulatory, manufacturing and services divisions in 2018.
