The flight services deal covers an integration that will see Draganfly's multi-copter drones paired with Windfall Geotek's EagleEye's AI software for exploration work, with the initial focus to be on battery metals such as nickel, zinc, lithium, and cobalt.
Under the strategic agreement, Draganfly will be Windfall Geotek's preferred aerial services provider for mining applications, progressing a partnership first announced last March.
The EagleEye aerial surveying solution works together with the company's computer-aided resources detection system (CARDS), a digital platform that can be used to limit target areas for exploration.
"We are excited about this phase of Windfall's growth with Draganfly. Bringing our two technology and service platforms together is industry-defining as we can provide the most ecologically friendly and in-depth exploration solution in the industry," said Dinesh Kandanchatha, chairman of Windfall Geotek.
"Together we will transform primary exploration by finding low/zero carbon solutions through AI and drones."
"We are excited about deepening our partnership with Windfall Geotek," said Cameron Chell, CEO of Draganfly. "EagleEye is a brilliant and unique offering that leverages Draganfly sensors and drone technology, creating a proprietary digital exploration solution that is both cost-effective and sustainable."
