Staex and Germandrones to Collaborate on Web3 Drone Corridor Project

Since Mid of April Staex and Germandrones entered into a strategic partnership aimed at advancing the capabilities and applications of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) within the burgeoning drone technology industry. This collaboration will leverage the expertise of both organizations to showcase the seamless integration of drone operations and online machine-to-machine payments within the framework of NEXA — Web3 drone corridor project.

Germandrones, a leading developer and producer of unmanned aerial systems (UAS), will provide essential drone technology for this project. The project will feature a series of test flights and public demonstrations at a private property in Berlin, Germany, in May 2024. This initiative underscores the potential for drones in data capture and reporting over a blockchain, with online machine-to-machine payments facilitated by paymenttools, a subsidiary of the REWE Group. Another key partner in the project is Vantage Towers AG, owner of 84,000+ telco towers across Europe.

Germandrones CEO, Dr. Klaus Scho, highlighted their commitment to innovation and collaboration, stating, "Germandrones is open to partnerships and innovations that address real-world challenges. This collaboration with Staex exemplifies our dedication to pushing the boundaries of drone technology for practical applications."

Dr. Alexandra Mikityuk, CEO of Staex, emphasizes “Staex's IoT network automation software will play a critical role in ensuring seamless connectivity and reliability between our technologies and those of our partners. We are excited to collaborate with Germandrones to showcase the potential of integrated drone operations in a shared economy.”

Both Berlin-based partners are looking forward to the fruitful outcomes of this partnership and are excited to showcase the potential of drone technology within the machine-to-machine economy.
