Optimus System will enable security and inspection capabilities via aerial data infrastructure to support the construction and ongoing operation of chip fabrication facilities
WALTHAM, MA and PETAH TIKVAH, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / February 17, 2023 / Ondas Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:ONDS) ("Ondas" or the "Company"), a leading provider of private industrial wireless networks, and commercial automated data solutions announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Airobotics Ltd. ("Airobotics"), has received an order for continued services from one of the world's largest and most innovative semiconductor chip manufacturers.
Airobotics' aerial data Infrastructure, Optimus System, has been installed at a large chip fabrication facility in Israel, providing autonomous drone services since 2016. The semiconductor chip manufacturer will continue to use data and analytics collected from the Optimus System in addition to its remote monitoring services to ensure security and project safety within one of its most important semiconductor fabrication plants. The technology will also be used for construction project management within new fabrication plants, providing progress monitoring, survey, and geo-visual data and analytics to project managers and other stakeholders.
"The continued utilization of Airobotics' Optimus System by this Fortune 100 company proves the potential of autonomous drone technology as critical infrastructure and further validates our business model as we provide aerial data services to customers in different industries," said Meir Kliner, CEO of Airobotics. "The use of our technology for site security and construction project management by this customer demonstrates the reliability and value of our autonomous drone platform. We believe Airobotics has an opportunity to leverage this experience to expand our construction management solutions in global markets."
Since 2020, Optimus System operations have been extended to support a mega construction project providing unified data platform and analytics services to the company and its contractor companies. The Optimus System and its geo-visual data platform are being used by hundreds of users including the project owner staff and its contractors, to visualize, understand, and share the status of construction. The system provides a shared data platform and portal that improves productivity and communication between teams and organizations while continuing its original security and remote supervision routine operations.
