Skyborne validated its first market to provide start-up funding to create change with its next-generation drones.
Market: $5.6 billion Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) drone market by 2020.
Problem: For infrastructure inspections, multi-rotor drones have limited endurance and limited line of sight, while fixed-wing drones can’t hover.
Solution: Skyborne Technologies is developing two hybrid tilt-rotor UAVs to address the market problem.
Skyborne has learnt that communicating with customers and building a great team to generate immediate sales is critical to funding the development of their new UAVs.
