American Robotics, a subsidiary of Ondas Holdings, announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued the company a new exemption that removes conditions and limitations that restricted commercial operations from its previous exemption. The company received a Part 107 Waiver for expanded Automated Beyond-Visual-Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) flights.


American Robotics was the first company to receive FAA approval to operate automated drones without humans on-site in 2021. This latest exemption is an amendment to that waiver, which originally restricted operations to research and development, crew training and market surveys. Now, the company has the full authority to operate its autonomous Scout System drone commercially without limitations.
