Microdrones Acquires Aircam UAV Technology
Expands into Asia
Microdrones has acquired Aircam UAV Technology, a 64-employee Chinese company with its main location in Foshan, an hour-drive from Guangzhou in southern China, and a branch in Beijing. Aircam has developed a large Chinese and Southeast Asian customer base with a focus on surveying and mapping, utilities, and oil and gas industries.
Aircam will be fully integrated with the Microdrones business, brand and leadership team. The Aircam brand and corporate identity will change to Microdrones, and all aspects of the business will be directed by the Microdrones global leadership team.
Microdrones and Aircam have a long history of working together. Microdrones President Vivien Heriard Dubreuil explains, “For the past decade, Microdrones and Aircam have shared a strong distribution relationship, selling and supporting Microdrones systems to professionals throughout the continent.”
Although Microdrones professional drones have been available in Asia (though Aircam) since 2008, Microdrones now has a direct, local presence in the market. Microdrones technology, products, and solutions will be available to customers throughout Asia, subject to applicable export control and regulations.
“We’re talking about business oriented, field-proven solutions that will help end-users make better business decisions.” says Heriard Dubreuil. “Globally, this is the next step in our evolution. In Asia, specifically, this will have a revolutionary and transformative impact for our customers and our business.”
Completed in late December of 2018, this acquisition hardens a global presence for the rapidly expanding company and its technology platforms. Microdrones success is rooted in mastering all of the key hardware and software technologies required to provide fully integrated, professional solutions.
Dr. Mohamed Mostafa, who directs product and solution development for Microdrones, says, “The expanded Microdrones team will provide solutions that help professionals be the best both in the field and at the office. Our easy workflow takes users from data collection through information creation with one goal in mind: to help them use our technology for better decision-making.”
