Volz servos have been tested down to 4,000m water depth.
Marc Geriene, Coral Partners’ CEO commented “We are very pleased to have developed a business relationship with Bob Schmidt and UAV Propulsion Tech. We see the synergy between our market and his as being complementary to both.” He also added “We look forward to collaborating on the introduction of several new products that leverage UAV Propulsion Tech’s core strengths, and exploring a supplier relationship as well.”
Tim McGuinness, Ph.D, Chief Marketing Officer at Coral Partners said, “We are excited to bring on UAV Propulsion Tech as a distributor because of Bob’s connections in the commercial and defense markets that could use Nova Ray® for underwater exploration, particularly for pipeline inspection, underwater mapping, and exploration. Our new “AeroSub” product will also be a good fit for UAV Propulsion Tech because it will provide both aerial (overwater) and submersible capability”. Bob Schmidt, founder and president of UAV Propulsion Tech said, “The addition of Coral Partner’s Nova Ray® ROV and future AeroSub expands our products solutions to cover both air and underwater applications. We have seen the expansion of the underwater market through the sale of submersible actuators from Volz Servos out of Germany”. Bob went on to say, “Mapping and surveillance from the air and underwater is a growing market and we are adding advanced technical solutions to best support this market.”
