 Press Releases

  • Mobilicom, parent company of SkyHopper by Mobilicom, has received a grant to create a unique solution that focuses on the development of cyber technologies using Artificial Intelligence (AI) as an add-on module for drones and unmanned platforms. The grant is funded by the Israeli Ministry of Defense and the Israel Innovation Authority.

    Within the scope of this project, Mobilicom will develop an anti-hijacking and anti-spoofing system for commercial, government and enterprise drones and robotics. This will enable autonomous drone cybersecurity without intervention by an operator in real-time.

    Mobilicom’s innovative solution will mitigate cybersecurity risks and as a result, enable the acceleration of commercial drone market scalability. This program reinforces Mobilicom as a holistic provider of equipment, software and solutions for unmanned platforms and will become a game-changer for commercial drone deployment, as well as drones in security, public safety and federal operations.

    Mobilicom’s CEO, Oren Elkayam, said, “Mobilicom holds the key components that turn a drone into a “smart drone”. We look forward to offer drone and robotics manufacturers our new technology leveraging Artificial Intelligence as an add-on module for drones and other unmanned platforms. Given the daily involvement of unmanned platforms in security and homeland security operations, it goes without saying that this technology will serve as an added value here and in other commercial applications.”

  • New drone solutions that are optimal for long-range, non-line-of-sight, beyond-line of sight and urban operations within applications including Security, Public Safety, Disaster Relief, and Naval Operations

    Yuneec International and Mobilicom have entered into a strategic partnership to offer the Commercial & Federal market new advanced solutions for their unmanned aerial needs. The cooperation focuses on the development of two innovative Commercial and Federal drone solutions, based on Yuneec´s commercially proven hexacopter H520, well-known for its high reliability, safety and precision, and Mobilicom´s innovative SkyHopper and LTE technology. Both sUAS, which will be called H520 SkyHopper and H520 SkyHopper LTE, will incorporate high-end cyber security and encryption, dedicated frequencies and interference-avoidance capabilities, and will be offered as customizable, flexible and scalable end-to-end solutions.

    “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. The partnership with Mobilicom enables us to successfully address these unmet needs and offer them two groundbreaking products”, stated Joe Schamuhn, CEO of Yuneec Europe.

    High End Security & Interference Avoidance

    The Commercial & Federal drone solutions 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.

    Flexible End-to-End Solution & Connectivity

    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. 

    A Reliable & Cost-Effective Solution

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

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