Drone Aviation Delivers Aerial Photogrammetry Survey Package

Unique Photogrammetry Survey Package Designed for Applications in Land Management, Agriculture and Scientific Research

JACKSONVILLE, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 7, 2014) - Drone Aviation Corp. ("DAC"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Drone Aviation Holding Corp. (OTCQB: DRNE), a developer of specialized tethered drones and lighter-than-air aerostats, today announced the delivery of its unique aerial photogrammetry package. The advanced optical package was delivered to a state agency for use in land management applications. 

The custom designed aerial photogrammetry survey package is an aerial imaging system designed for DAC's compact, low cost lighter than air aerostat systems. Featuring a gimbaled high resolution digital camera, mounted to a small aerostat connected to a tether line controlled by a winch, the photogrammetry system can be utilized for various safety and civil applications including land surveying, land management and planning, and road construction and repair. The aerial photogrammetry system is also ideal for topographic research, archaeology, geology and global warming studies. The customized system includes all necessary equipment to launch, operate and recover the aerostat including various high resolution digital photography equipment.

Designed for public safety and civil purposes, DAC's commercial tethered systems are different from free flying drones due to the utilization of a secure, high strength tether line which remains connected to the ground. The DAC aerostat system is a cost effective solution that is able to safely operate in the National Airspace in compliance with FAA regulations. Military versions of the BiB and WASP aerostat systems are in use or under evaluation and testing by various Department of Defense customers intended to serve as an aerial platform for semi-persistent Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance ("ISR") applications as well as serving as a rapidly deployed extended communications solution for ground troops.

With the delivery of our specialized aerial imaging system, we continue to greatly expand the capabilities of our customers utilizing our aerostat product line," stated Felicia Hess, CEO of Drone Aviation Corp. "The combination of our cost-effective aerostats along with this advanced photogrammetry package creates many new civil and commercial opportunities for our clients in the areas of land management, agriculture and real estate, and we look forward to bringing this cost effective solution to new and existing customers."
