[Avionics Today 08-18-15] Aero Kinetics and GridMeNow have announced a partnership to incorporate GridMeNow’s mobile, real-time tracking solutions into Aero Kinetics’ multi-rotor Vertical Takeoff and Land (VTOL) Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS). The combination allows operators to dispatch UAS from a mobile phone to an exact location, which would fit in with many commercial models for remote package delivery and aerial footage.

“We will essentially become the Uber of unmanned systems where UAS can be dispatched by mobile phone directly to your location. If you need aerial footage/support or medical supplies delivered to a remote location, GridMeNow will provide those capabilities,” said W. Hulsey Smith, CEO of Aero Kinetics.
