Australian drone manufacturer, Carbonix, has announced its expansion in the US market via an operating partnership with ArgenTech Solutions.
The two companies have signed a Master Service Agreement that will see ArgenTech Solutions provide services including flight operations, maintenance and pilot training, using Carbonix UASes.
The partnership will enable Carbonix VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) aircraft to be operated and supported by ArgenTech Solutions across various commercial, NGO and governmental customer missions mainly in the US, as well as the wider Americas in which ArgenTech already has a presence or customer base.
“Expanding further into the US is a logical next step for Carbonix allowing us to bring our Australian experience and capabilities into a large and fast-growing market,” said Carbonix CEO Philip van der Burg.
“As we grow ArgenTech’s commercial business, we have expanded our worldwide capabilities and services to include wildfire monitoring for the US Bureau of Land Management, training, and subject matter expertise for commercial systems,” added ArgenTech CEO, Brian Veroneau.
“We see partnering with Carbonix and the strength of their systems as advantageous in expanding our capabilities throughout the Americas.”
Carbonix recently became one of just a few of drone companies to receive beyond visual line of sight (BVLoS) approval in Greater Sydney, which has paved the way for it to continue BVLoS testing and missions with payloads including surveying LiDAR scanners and photogrammetry cameras.
