WALTHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE / August 31, 2022 / Ondas Holdings Inc.

("Ondas" or the "Company"), a leading provider of private wireless data, drone, and automated data solutions through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Ondas Networks Inc. and American Robotics, Inc. ("American Robotics" or "AR"), announced today that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued American Robotics a new exemption (the "Exemption"), removing the Conditions and Limitations set on its previous exemption, which had restricted operations to "research and development, crew training, and market surveys." The new Exemption, along with American Robotics' Waiver for fully-automated beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) operations, provides the company with the authority to operate its autonomous Scout System drone commercially without limitations on use.

"This new Exemption from the FAA is the fourth milestone approval for American Robotics in less than two years, signaling a clear trajectory towards increased implementation of nationwide autonomous commercial drone operations," said American Robotics co-founder and CEO Reese Mozer. "I am proud of the years of dedication and hard work that our team, partners, and regulators have put forth. Wide-scale adoption of autonomous drone technology represents a generational shift in how critical industries monitor, map, and inspect assets, unlocking new efficiencies, increasing safety, and reducing environmental impact."
