JACKSONVILLE, FL – Drone Aviation Holding Corp.

“This multi-million-dollar award is a testament to the hard work of our dedicated team and validates the tremendous opportunity we envision for the Company,” said Jay Nussbaum, Chairman and CEO of Drone Aviation. “On behalf of our Board and entire team, we are honored to have been chosen for this relationship and look forward to successfully expanding sales following this significant opportunity.”
