Company Expects to Fulfill All Pending Purchase Orders for Altum PT™, RedEdge-P™ and RedEdge-MX™ in Q3 and Successfully Meet Ongoing Market Demand Moving Forward
WICHITA, Kan – AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. (NYSE American: UAVS) (“AgEagle” or the “Company”), an industry-leading provider of full-stack drone, sensor and software solutions for commercial and government/defense use, today reported that steps taken to increase supply due to significant demand for its new MicaSense Altum-PT and RedEdge-P sensors, and its legacy RedEdge-MX sensors, will enable the Company to ship more than $2 million in backlogged purchase orders in the third quarter, ending September 30, 2022. In addition, AgEagle expects to meet ongoing global market demand for its multispectral sensors moving forward, notwithstanding any further unforeseen delays.
“Since the market launch of AgEagle’s latest drone sensor innovations in the fourth quarter of 2021, market demand for the Altum-PT and RedEdge-P has been skyrocketing due largely to escalating global adoption of advanced sensor technology in Agriculture, Plant Research, Land Management and Forestry Management. We are very pleased to report that our efforts to overcome bottlenecks in our supply chain for electronic components used in the production of our sensors have proven successful, positioning AgEagle to regain momentum on fulfilling millions of dollars in backorders we’ve received over the past three quarters,” stated Barrett Mooney, Chairman and CEO of AgEagle.
Continuing, Mooney said, “Looking ahead, these efforts should also help to ensure that we fulfill future orders on a much timelier basis as we continue to provide premium, high quality solutions for our customers and the industry. We are thrilled that drone operators around the globe are recognizing the value and superior performance capabilities of our advanced sensors. Moreover, we greatly appreciate the patience and understanding our customers have demonstrated as we’ve worked through the supply chain challenges that have delayed our sensor shipments.”
Altum-PT is an optimized three-in-one solution for advanced remote sensing and agricultural research. It seamlessly integrates an ultra-high resolution panchromatic imager, a built-in 320X256 radiometric thermal imager and five discrete spectral bands to produce synchronized outputs such as RGB color, crop vigor, heat maps and high resolution panchromatic in just one flight. Offering twice the spatial resolution of the prior Altum™ sensor, Altum-PT empowers users with deeper analytical capabilities and broader, more diverse applications; enabling them to discern issues at the plant level, even in the early growth stages; and to conduct early stage stand counting, as well as season-long soil monitoring, among other critical uses.
A single camera solution which is compatible with a wide array of drone aircraft ranging from large fixed wing to small multirotor, RedEdge-P captures calibrated high-resolution multispectral and RGB imagery with an optimized field of view and capture rate for efficient flights. This solution seamlessly integrates a high resolution, all-color imager with synchronized multispectral imagers to enable pixel-aligned outputs at previously unattainable resolutions, while maintaining the efficiency and reliability of its RedEdge™ legacy. Processing of data outputs is enabled through industry standard software platforms, including AgEagle’s Ground Control.
