Unifly has raised a total of £13.1m in Series-B funding, an investment which takes the company’s total up to £18.9m.
Investors in the new round of financing include existing shareholders QBIC, PMV, Terra Drone and the management, as well as the Deutsche Flugsicherung (DFS), the German National Air Navigation Service provider.
Unifly has said the proceeds will be used to continue to develop the software and to establish an international sales and support organisation to solidify its global position in UTM.
Marc Kegelaers, CEO of Unifly, said: “A few years ago, we decided to develop our UTM platform to be very robust and scaleable so that it could serve as the foundation of the strategic infrastructure needed to enable the drone services industry.”
He added: “The fact that the Deutsche Fluchsicherung, the National ANSP of Germany who has been working with our software for the last two years, participates in this round and becomes an important shareholder of Unifly is testimony to the success of our strategy.”
