FAA Grants American Robotics Part 107 Waiver for Expanded Automated BVLOS Operations

August 26, 2022


Ondas Holdings Inc., 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”), today announced that the FAA has granted American Robotics a Part 107 Waiver for expanded Automated Beyond-Visual-Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) operations.


This approval is an amendment to American Robotics’ original FAA waiver granted in 2021, which made American Robotics the first company authorized to operate its autonomous drone technology BVLOS with no pilots or visual observers on-site. The new waiver builds upon American Robotics’ portfolio of existing regulatory achievements, increasing the range that its autonomous drone technology can operate, further demonstrating the company’s industry-leading position. With greater operating authority granted to the Scout System, customers will experience an increased ROI with the ability to collect high resolution data over larger areas of assets.
