American Robotics received a new exemption by the US Federal Aviation Agency (FAA).
The new approval enables the company to not only operate its Scout drone system for research, development, crew training, and market surveys, but also for full-scale commercial operations. The drones now can be used in many sectors, including mining, oil gas and rail.
Wide-scale adoption of autonomous drone technology represents a generational shift in how critical industries monitor, map, and inspect assets, unlocking new efficiencies, increasing safety, and reducing environmental impact.Reese Mozer, American Robotics cofounder and CEO
This approval is the fourth milestone in the company’s drone plan that has been achieved in less than two years.
