Knightscope Signs MoU with Draganfly

Disseminated on behalf of Knightscope, Inc.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–March 13, 2024–Knightscope, Inc. [NASDAQ:KSCP] (“Knightscope” or the “Company”), a leading innovator in robotics and artificial intelligence (“AI”) technologies focused on public safety, and Draganfly Inc. [Nasdaq: DPRO] [CSE: DPRO] [FSE: 3U8A] (“Draganfly”), an award-winning, industry-leading drone solutions and systems developer, today jointly announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (“MoU”) to fully integrate Draganfly’s drone technology with Knightscope’s Autonomous Security Robot (“ASR”) technologies to form a unified autonomous offering committed to reimagining public safety.

Adding Autonomous Security Drones to the Company’s growing portfolio of technologies addresses a frequently requested advancement that enhances safety at the places people live, work, study and visit, both on the ground and from the air. Drones equip Knightscope’s ecosystem with the best of both worlds, creating a comprehensive suite of autonomous public safety solutions that integrate ground-based robots, stationary emergency communication devices and advanced aerial platforms. Clients can expect a synergy that enhances their security programs, providing a seamless and comprehensive approach to safety, threat detection, and emergency response.

Key Benefits That Improve Public Safety

  • Unprecedented Situational Awareness – augmenting a security profile with robots, E-phones and drones provides clients with actionable intelligence that elevates situational awareness, enabling quicker and more informed decisions during active emergencies.
  • Enhanced Threat Detection – when combined, the technologies will deliver a more comprehensive and nuanced overview of the environment, allowing for more effective threat detection and efficient response.
  • Improved Crime Prevention – the unified physical presence more effectively deters criminal activities, enhancing overall crime prevention in public spaces.
  • Critical Infrastructure Protection – an established, multi-layered defense of ground and aerial assets safeguards against threats to critical infrastructure such as power plants, transportation hubs, and government facilities.

This technology is planned to be integrated with the Knightscope Security Operations Center (“KSOC”) user interface, enhancing its capabilities by providing aerial surveillance options that can quickly adapt to changing situations. The Autonomous Security Drones can be programmed to patrol specific areas, follow predetermined routes, or be dispatched to investigate alarms or incidents in real-time, offering a birds-eye view that compliments the ground-based operations of ASRs, stationary emergency communication devices and Automated Gunshot Detection systems.

“Partnering with Draganfly marks a significant milestone in Knightscope’s mission to make the United States the safest country in the world. By integrating our cutting-edge ASRs and emergency communication systems with Draganfly’s innovative drone technology, we are setting a new standard for comprehensive, AI-driven public safety solutions,” stated William Santana Li, chairman and CEO, Knightscope, Inc. “This collaboration helps to further establish our position as a technology leader committed to the advancement of public safety.”

“As we embark on this groundbreaking work with Knightscope, Draganfly stands at the forefront of helping revolutionize security with autonomous drone technology,” said Cameron Chell, President and CEO of Draganfly. “Our work signifies a significant step forward in integrating AI-driven solutions to enhance public safety. Together, we’re flying into a future where innovation and security converge to create smarter, safer communities and industries.”
