Is the commercial drone industry finally ready for takeoff? Ondas Holdings certainly thinks so. That’s why the developer of proprietary, software-based wireless broadband technology today spent $70.6 million to acquire American Robotics.


Marlborough, Mass.-based American Robotics develops Scout, a fully-automated commercial drone system. It is the first and only company the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved to fly drones beyond-visual-line-of-sight without a human operator on the ground.
