Global UAV Technologies Ltd. (CSE: UAV, OTC: YRLLF, FSE: YAB2) (the “Company” or “Global UAV”), a leader in the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (“UAV”) industry, reports significant development within its services division as its wholly owned subsidiary, High Eye Aerial Imaging (“High Eye”) sees growth from Global UAV’s strategic investment and restructuring of operations.
High Eye will soon be mobilizing to complete a UAV survey contract on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. The company also recently completed survey and videography work at an operating mine site in Northern Canada.
In addition to securing both international and high-profile clients, High Eye has been successful in growing its operations and has expanded its fleet with the addition of three new UAVs. High Eye also welcomed Jean-François Dionne, an accomplished UAV professional, to manage operations, sales and business development for the company.
