WICHITA, KS / ACCESSWIRE / November 14, 2022 / AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. (NYSE American:UAVS) ("AgEagle" or the "Company"), an industry-leading provider of full stack flight hardware, sensors and software for commercial and government/defense use, today announced that it has partnered with government contractor Darley to expand the market reach of AgEagle's high performance fixed wing drones and sensors to the U.S. first responder and tactical defense markets.
Jeb Brown, Director of Unmanned Systems at Darley, stated, "Darley is very proud to add AgEagle's high performance drones to our high quality, safe and innovative product offerings sold to fire, emergency and tactical professionals worldwide. In view of AgEagle's eBee X™ series of fixed wing unmanned aerial systems ("UAS") being cleared by the FAA for Operations Over People (OOP) and over moving vehicles in the United States, we believe this represents a paradigm shift for first responders reliant on optimal situational awareness for tactical, search and rescue or firefighting missions. Moreover, we look forward to driving greater defense market penetration for AgEagle's NDAA-compliant, Blue UAS-cleared eBee TAC™, which is a powerful force-multiplier for warfighters requiring covert tactical mapping capabilities and optimized field intelligence in rapidly changing environments."
Since 1908, Darley (legally known as W.S. Darley & Co.) has served America's warfighters and first responders as a leading manufacturer of pumps and supplier of training and material support to the United States at the Federal, State and Local levels. Darley also holds a variety of contract vehicles within the U.S. Department of Defense to streamline procurement and acquisition processes, including GSA, FedMall and the TLS Program. AgEagle Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Barrett Mooney added, "Distinguished as one of the nation's longest standing government contracting organizations, Darley is expected to become a key contributor to AgEagle's success in delivering best-in-class UAS solutions to a wide range of state and federal agencies. With over 50 eBee TAC units sold to the U.S. military and allied nations over the past six months, we believe that we have barely scratched the surface of what promises to be a significant growth market opportunity for AgEagle. However, providing our best-in-class autonomous flight solutions for public safety applications through trusted resellers like Darley represents an entirely new market opportunity for AgEagle and one we intend to vigorously pursue in the coming year."
