Yuneec International and Mobilicom today announced a strategic partnership to offer new advanced solutions in the unmanned aerial systems (UAS) space for commercial and government clients.

The collaboration will focus on developing two new systems, based on Yuneec’s commercial Hexacopter H520, and Mobilicom’s SkyHopper and LTE technology. The new offerings, to be called H520 SkyHopper and H520 SkyHopper LTE, will include high-end cybersecurity and encryption, dedicated frequencies and interference-avoidance capabilities, the companies said in a statement. In addition, the systems will be offered as customizable, flexible, and scalable end-to-end solutions. The new system launched officially today at UTSec, the Summit for Drones, Unmanned Technology and Security, in Nuremburg, Germany.

“In listening to the needs of our commercial & federal customers within this segment, it was our objective to come up with a solution that would answer their pain points,” said Joe Schamuhn, CEO of Yuneec Europe. “The partnership with Mobilicom enables us to successfully address these unmet needs and offer them two groundbreaking products.”

High end security & interference avoidance

The new offerings will provide a highly secure offering that includes High-End validated encryption, Dedicated and ISM Frequency Bands, Software Defined Radio or LTE + Secured Server Data Links and ISM jamming resistance. Both sUAS also mitigate backdoor cyber risks that are of high concern by federal organizations in leading Western countries, the companies said.

Furthermore, the sUAS offer a complete solution with add-ons for teams on land and sea, including ruggedized controllers and remote viewing terminals, flexible payloads as well as optional capabilities such as RTK/PPK precision, networking, relay and more.

Yuneec said its drone systems have been commercially proven for years and successfully sold to the masses. The joint solutions will prove cost-effective while providing the commercial & government market with the necessary features in order to execute its operations.

“SkyHopper brings a high-end, end-to-end solution for the government, federal and commercial markets, embedded into Yuneec’s mass-marketed proven commercial drone system,” said Oren Elkayam, CEO of Mobilicom. “This offering serves as an unmatchable, cost-effective drone solution for the commercial and federal market.”
