As part of A4 Aerospace, Identified will seamlessly and vertically integrate with the Vayu Aerospace Corporation as well as other third-party drone manufactures. The addition of this new Driver Company continues to round out the A4 Aerospace Portfolio. With an array of use cases, Identified opens doors into numerous sectors in this still burgeoning drone economy.
Kent B. Wilson, Alpine 4 CEO, had this to say, “What a great way to kick off our corporate debut on the Nasdaq. When we purchased Impossible Aerospace Corporation and Vayu (US), Inc. last year and merged them into Vayu Aerospace Corporation, we knew we had three world-class airframes to offer our customers. But we also recognized the need to either create or acquire a software platform that could be tethered to our airframes to deliver real-time information from all the potential data that could be collected from our drone offerings. That day was realized today when A4 Aerospace completed the acquisition of Identified Technologies. Identified’s robust mapping technology and Vayu’s US-1, G1 and G2 airframes are the perfect blend of a hardware/software stack for our aerospace clientele.”
Richard Zhang, Founder and CEO of Identified added, “We’re thrilled to now be part of the Alpine 4 umbrella of companies, and to be collaborating directly with the Vayu Aerospace Corp. When I started Identified Technologies nine years ago, I set out to use drone technology to implement a new approach to offsite management. We’ve developed a deep expertise in analyzing drone data. When paired with Vayu’s world-class airframes, we’re positioned to grab market share in this space. Together we can bring global impact to the market with a totally integrated, enterprise-scale solution. I’m tremendously excited for what the future holds as we congratulate Alpine 4 celebrating the kickoff of the Nasdaq.“
