Drone Aviation Receives Order for Blimp in a Box Sustainment Equipment for U.S. Army

Aerostat Related Equipment to Support Ongoing Solider Training and Operations

JACKSONVILLE, FL--(Marketwired - Apr 7, 2015) - Drone Aviation Holding Corp. (OTCQB: DRNE), a developer of specialized lighter-than-air aerostats and tethered drones, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Drone Aviation Corp. (DAC), has received an order for aerostat related equipment to support Blimp in a Box systems owned and operated by the U.S. Army. The aerostat related equipment includes lighter than air (LTA) helium based aerial assets which will be utilized to support ongoing solider training and operations.

DAC develops and manufactures the Blimp in a Box (BiB) and WASP aerostat product line. The BiB and WASP aerostats utilize a secure, high strength tether line which remains connected to the ground, allowing them to operate in the National Airspace in compliance with FAA regulations. DAC systems are intended to provide semi-persistent, mobile intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance ("ISR") and extend communications for various applications. Each system can provide low cost, mobile ISR and mobile communications for days, weeks or months with the system only requiring a 15 minute recovery and re-launch between Helium replenishment "top-offs" every 24-36 hours. BiB and WASP aerostats are currently in use in a number of DoD applications as well as State and Local Police and Department of Transportation where they provide silent, cost effective day and night monitoring and mobile communications.

Felicia Hess, CEO of Drone Aviation Holding Corp. stated, "We are proud to have the opportunity to work closely with our Government customers who utilize our platforms on an ongoing basis. As the systems continue to operate in tough tactical environments we will push to enhance the capabilities on the BiB and WASP systems, including new sensor packages and long range wireless capabilities, to further support their requirements."
