  • 1. DRONE AVIATION CORP (DRNE) OVERVIEW ABOUT DRONE AVIATION CORP DRONE Aviation Corp (DRNE) was formed in April 2014 to penetrate the rapidly growing Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) business in U.S. and abroad for government and commercial customers OUR MISSION DRNE’s mission is to aggressively penetrate the expanding Drone market with our unique Tethered Drones, which are currently being fielded to the U.S. Department of Defense and State and Local municipalities. WHAT WE DO DRNE owns and operates Florida based, Lighter than Air Systems Corp (LTAS), a developer and supplier of unique and specialized aerial solutions to the U.S. Government, State municipalities, and commercial entities 2 2
  • 2. LIGHTER THAN AIR SYSTEMS LTAS LTAS is a trusted supplier of Surveillance and Communication systems to various branches of the Department of Defense as well as State and Local Civilian and Commercial entities. LTAS is a leader in producing the most advanced, complete Turn Key Tethered surveillance systems based on proprietary technology developed to allow the tethering of aerostats and Drones to the ground for extended safe and legal operations LTAS has Delivered various systems to the Department of Defense, into active Theaters as well into Army Bases where the systems are utilized on base for training soldiers in preparation for future military exercises
  • 3. LIGHTER THAN AIR SYSTEMS GOV. CUSTOMERS GOVERNMENT: US Army, US Air Force, US Navy, US Marine Corps, National Renewable Energy Lab, NASA KSC, EPA, ODOT, Bureau of Land Management, Dept. of Agriculture, Los Alamos, NIST, several state and municipal agencies, various Middle Eastern ITAR-approved government military and research organizations. UNIVERSITIES: Univ. of Central Florida, Univ. of Delaware, Univ. of Zagreb, USC, MIT Commercial Over 30 Top 500 companies U.S. ARMY SPACE & MISSILE DEFENSE COMMAND BATTLE LABS JOINT IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVE DEVICE DEFEAT ORGANIZATION DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY U.S. ARMY RAPID EQUIPPING FORCE
  • 4. WHY TETHERED DRONES ? LTAS Our Tethered DRONES are SAFE and LEGAL to operate under current FAA guidelines. LTAS Tethered DRONES offer unsurpassed flight duration and security due to power and communications both running through the MilSpec tether line Free Flying Drones are currently illegal to fly in the U.S. National Air Space (NAS) and have on various occasions crashed into Civilian areas and recently nearly crashed into two Commercial Jetliners Unlike the large Multi Million dollar Drones flown by the DoD, smaller Free Flying Drones fly with batteries for less than an hour with a simple, tiny GoPro style hobby camera. Our BOLT and SPARK Drones can fly for up to 24hrs and carry specialized Military grade surveillance equipment providing unmatched capability
  • 5. “FREE FLYING” DRONES HAVE SERIOUS PUBLIC SAFTEY CONCERNS – RECENT PRESS
  • 6. TETHERED DRONE SYSTEMS LTAS BOLT and SPARK Product Line Both the BOLT and SPARK Tethered Drones are in complete compliance with FAA regulations and can be utilized in the U.S. as a safe alternative to Unmanned Drones that pose danger to the public The LTAS Tethered DRONE offering includes the BOLT and the smaller SPARK product lines – Both systems are Safe and Controllable and can provide extended flight time utilizing ground source power Tethered DRONE systems can operate as a safe, low cost alternative to costly manned helicopters and small manned aircraft in order to provide immediate aerial surveillance and communications solutions for various applications ranging from disaster management to daily highway monitoring and Police support
  • 7. BLIMP IN A BOX - MILITARY LTAS Our Blimp in a Box (BiB) Tethered Aerostat System has been selected for use by various DoD agencies due to its unique compact design and turn key feature set. The BiB systems can provide both ISR and Communications capabilities The initial ISR BiB systems owned by the Army are undergoing troop training and rotational exercises at Fort Polk, LA. The BiBs can be utilized for daytime or night stealth surveillance to monitor borders or provide force protection including monitoring potential hostile activity such as preventing roadside bombs, snipers and route clearing Additional BiB systems owned by the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command (SMDC) are currently used to provide and extend secure communications for up to 20km in areas where no communications exist, providing soldiers instant access to critical data and voice services
  • 8. BLIMP IN A BOX - COMMERCIAL Our Commercial BiB systems can be operated by a small two man crew and can be launched within 15 minutes in order to provide instant support in emergency scenarios The Commercial versions of our BiB systems are currently in use by various State and Local Police and Department of Transportation where they provide silent, cost effective day and night monitoring where only expensive manned aircraft or helicopters can compete Whether providing security for sporting events, or launched after a hurricane to provide cellular or two way communications or flown over a tornado site to provide immediate live footage to locate victims under rubble, the BiB system can be a cost effective solution to support critical civilian and commercial applications
  • 9. GLOBAL DRONE MARKET According to analysts, Privacy and safety concerns still pose the risk of chilling commercial drone flights in many markets, therefore LTAS has developed a Safe and Secure approach utilizing a unique Tethering solution to alleviate public concern Leading analysts project an Estimated $98 Billion to be spent on Drones globally over the next 10 years. Defense is the overwhelming majority, as a trusted Contractor LTAS is well positioned to benefit as they continue to work with the DoD on specialized Tethered Systems Analysts estimate that 12% of an estimated $98 billion in cumulative global spending on aerial drones over the next decade will be for commercial purposes, where LTAS currently is leading the tethered industry by penetrating that market with customers ranging from State DOT to Local Police Departments
