Aero Kinetics Aims to be the "Uber of UAS"

By Staff Writer | August 20, 2015

Aerospace and defense firm Aero Kinetics has partnered with a mobile technology provider to create what CEO W. Hulsey Smith described as “the Uber of unmanned systems.”  Through a recent partnership with GridMeNow—a provider of situational awareness, real-time event reporting and targeted communications software to clients such as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security—Aero Kinetics intends to create a service whereby customers can call its multi-rotor drones to their location using their mobile phone. “If you need aerial footage/support or medical supplies delivered to a remote location, GridMeNow will provide those capabilities,” added Smith.
