Skyborne is pleased to be featured in a media statement by Minister for Innovation and Tourism Industry Development and Minister for the Commonwealth Games, The Honourable Kate Jones.

Skyborne received a grant in round 2 of the government’s Ignite Ideas program to further development on the Cerberus GL platform and have secured a Series A funding following the initial support for Cerberus GL.

Dr Michael Creagh, CEO, says “It has been an amazing two years for Skyborne under Advance Queensland's Ignite Ideas program, securing a Series A round of investment to expand our engineering team and manufacturing capabilities to deliver a commercialised product to interested parties. Raising capital for the next generation of tactical UAVs is not an easy undertaking and without grant programs like Ignite Ideas, companies like ours face an even greater struggle.”

CBO Adrian Dudok says “With the continued support from the Queensland Government, Skyborne will contribute towards the focus on strengthening Queensland’s defence and manufacturing industry. The export opportunities are endless and we’ve received some serious interest from the US and Middle East.”
