Martin Aircraft Company is pleased to announce that it has signed a formal Alliance Agreement with Avwatch Incorporated, USA, on 18 July 2016.
Avwatch is a US business that harnesses innovative and proven technologies to support, enhance, and train Federal, state and local government agencies in support of homeland security and disaster recovery. The company was founded in 2008 and consists of nationally recognized Homeland Security experts who are well-versed in military, Federal, state and local disaster response planning and response protocols.
In terms of the agreement, Avwatch and Martin Aircraft Company will work together, along with input from already identified customers, to develop specific capabilities for the North American First Responder and Homeland Security sectors, key markets for the First Responder Martin Jetpack. The agreement also creates the platform to seek research and development funding for the further development of the Martin Jetpack to meet the specific identified US first responder requirements. In addition, subject to certain commercial criteria being met, Avwatch intends to purchase a number of manned and unmanned Jetpacks to enhance their capability.
Martin Aircraft Company plans to establish a Sales and Marketing presence based at Avwatch Headquarters in Plymouth, MA, and will work with Avwatch to potentially establish a training, support and service centre in the US.
Avwatch has been a great supporter of Martin Aircraft Company for a number of years. Their philosophy of saving human lives and making human lives better is completely aligned with our thinking.
We are extremely pleased to have arrived at this formal agreement to work alongside a very experienced Avwatch team to provide Jetpacks and to continue to build a strong working relationship in North America.
