TCOM Acquires Multi-Rotor Drone Tech Developer Equinox Innovative Systems

TCOM has acquired Equinox Innovative Systems, a Columbia, Maryland-based manufacturer of multi-rotor unmanned aerial vehicles, in a transaction aimed at expanding the former’s technology offerings to include tethered and untethered drone systems.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed and TCOM said Tuesday that Equinox will bring a complementary suite of drone products designed for military operations, critical infrastructure inspection, telecommunications and emergency response.

The Equinox drones are capable of handling extreme weather conditions, extended flight durations, heavy payload lifts and precision landings.

“Adding their expertise in radio frequency and system engineering, as well electro-mechanical airframe integration, will not only complement our existing technology roadmap but also serve to bring this cutting-edge innovation under one operation to aid in the protection of strategic regions around the globe,” said Ron Bendlin, president and CEO of TCOM.

Columbia, Maryland-headquartered TCOM offers elevated awareness tools designed to support applications such as critical infrastructure and force protection, distant warning and awareness and maritime and border security.
