“Aerodyne Group is excited to join forces with Sensorem, which has a strong foundation in key pillars of the Australian economy. We believe there is immense opportunity ahead for our ‘vertikaliti’ solution suite in the Australian market and we look forward to working with Ed and his team to super-charge the next stage of growth,” said Aerodyne Group COO, Rossi Jaafar.

Sensorem Managing Director, Ed Boxall, expressed excitement regarding the next phase of Sensorem’s life and the obvious appeal of Aerodyne Group as a strategic partner to help realise the potential of Sensorem’s in-house technologies and extensive client network located across the massive Australian market.

“Recent technological advancements in precision aerial surveying, asset inspection, and data analysis have helped Sensorem enjoy sustained growth in recent years. The next phase of Sensorem’s journey will no doubt benefit from this partnership with the global leader in the field of drone based enterprise solutions. This will allow us to leverage Aerodyne’s global footprint and economies of scale, ensuring that Sensorem continues to offer an innovative and differentiated value proposition for our clients,” said Boxall.
