Draganfly Selected to Develop Tactical Multi-Drop Payload System by MMS Products

Tampa, FL., Jan. 30, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Draganfly Inc. (NASDAQ: DPRO) (CSE: DPRO) (FSE: 3U8A) (“Draganfly” or the “Company”), an award-winning, industry-leading drone solutions and systems developer, is pleased to announce that it has been selected by MMS Products, Inc. to develop a drone-based tactical multi-drop payload system.

MMS Products equips military personnel with the best tools and solutions to enhance safety, effectiveness, and overall mission success.

This drone payload system is designed explicitly for tactical multi-drop and ISR operations. The highlight of this development is the integration with MMS Products' Mjolnir, a highly configurable delivery device renowned for its versatility and effectiveness in various operational scenarios. The tactical multi-drop system boasts universal mount capabilities that can be easily adapted or attached to a wide range of drone models, and will be optimized for use with the Draganfly Commander 3XL.

This optimization with the Commander 3XL drone will enhance the performance and efficiency of both technologies, resulting in a robust turnkey tactical solution.

“This development marks a significant step in professional and scalable small drone tactical capability, merging the expertise of MMS Products with Draganfly's expertise in drone development,” said Cameron Chell, President and CEO of Draganfly. “We are thrilled to develop this system for MMS and be their system provider of choice going forward in their rapidly expanding market. The tactical multi-drop system is expected to bring new levels of efficiency, safety, and effectiveness to operations that require such technology, including military, demining, and specialized industrial applications.”

"We selected Draganfly because they possess the thought leadership, technical expertise, and global experience pivotal to the evolution of tactical drone technology," stated Tim Dunnigan, President and CEO of MMS Products, Inc. "Our working partnership with Draganfly has culminated in a state-of-the-art payload system uniquely tailored for tactical multi-drop and targeting tasks that can operate safely at scale at the time of need. This combination is crucial to the new realities of the tactical operating environment. The cornerstone of this development is integrating our Mjolnir payload, a drone-based delivery system that has already established a reputation for unparalleled versatility and effectiveness in diverse operational contexts. This initiative is not just about advancing technology; it's about redefining the possibilities of drone capabilities in critical missions."

The project reflects an evolving landscape in drone technology, where integrating various systems and payloads expands the capabilities and applications of UAVs. This development highlights a trend towards more modular and adaptable systems in drone technology, allowing for a broader range of applications and quicker adaptation to different operational needs.

Draganfly recently showcased the Commander 3 XL during Modern Warfare Week. Modern Warfare Week served as a premier gathering for the Special Operations Forces (SOF) community, providing a platform for education and collaboration on the evolving warfare landscape, with an attendance of 800 select military and government representatives. The Global Special Operations Foundation (GSOF) and the United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) jointly sponsored the event.
