Kittyhawk, a drone operations software company, has secured $3m (£2.3m) worth of new funding from The Travelers Companies.
The investment will go towards an accelerated effort towards commercial drone operations.
This announcement follows its $5m funding round in June led by Bonfire Ventures in participation with by Boeing HorizonX Ventures.
Uniquely, Travelers is an existing Kittyhawk customer and, since 2016, has used Kittyhawk’s software to become the nation’s largest insurance drone fleet operator, with over 600 drone operators.
The additional funding will help Travelers improve inspections for daily claims and natural disasters, and ensure Kittyhawk will continue to unify the mission, aircraft, and data for companies to manage in-house commercial drone operations at scale.
