“We are honored to have been chosen by the U.S. Navy to demonstrate our capabilities,” said the CEO of ZenaDrone, Inc., Shaun Passley, PhD. “We believe that majority of our revenue will come from sales of ZenaDrone 1000 from the U.S. Government.”
Moreover, Epazz is setting a base in Germany, and its ZenaDrone 1000 technology has elicited strong demand in Ireland. The drone has tremendous use in the agricultural sector, opening new opportunities for the company.
Similarly, the company is preparing a series of demonstrations to showcase ZenaDrone's capabilities with the U.S. Navy. The applications come from the U.S. military, which is also showing strong interest in the technology, therefore presenting an opportunity for the company to demonstrate the drone abilities in real-world conditions.
Demonstrations with the U.S. Navy and military come as the company continues pushing for the necessary certifications and licenses to become a defense contractor. The applications come as the company looks to tap into the major need for heavy-lift drones from the Department of Defense.
In addition to pursuing opportunities in the U.S. market, Epazz has also set sights on emerging opportunities in Taiwan. It has already entered into a strategic partnership with Thunder Tiger, a Taiwanese defense contractor. Given its strong ties, the contractor has agreed to sell ZenaDrone 1000 to the Taiwanese government.
Epazz has also established a presence in Brazil by establishing a facility and infrastructure for ZenaDrone 1000 operations. The move comes after over 25 esteemed Brazilian organizations showed strong interest in the ZenaDrone technology.
