or loitering (Kamikaze) drones.
The SkyHopper Micro complies with the NDAA, a critical requirement for US Government agencies. Mobilicom CEO Oren Elkayam said, “Our ongoing discussions and collaboration with Tier-1 customers
confirms there is an immediate need for a micro communications system to support the growing demand

mass deployment of small drone fleets, many of which are single missions and require frequent
replacement. It offers outstanding security and performance in harsh environments and challenging
“We’ve designed the SkyHopper Micro to be assembled at the printed circuit board, significantly reducing
the overall drone cost for our customers by dramatically decreasing drone assembly time, eliminating the
need for power and data cables, and improving quality and manufacturing yield.
SkyHopper Micro leverages Mobilicom’s leading wireless technology to deliver long range bi-directional
communications and real-time HD video up to 5km as well as N-LOS operations in urban and remote
