CHICAGO, IL, March 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – Epazz Inc. (OTC: EPAZ), a mission-critical provider of drone technology, blockchain mobile apps and cloud-based business software solutions, announced today ZenaDrone signed up a U.S. defense contractor to partner with on submitting a SBIR Phase II proposal. This partnership helps ZenaDrone fast track the Phase II submission process, which includes a U.S. government customer who will be using our drone and partner technology.
The San Antonio Air Force Trade Show, which was held between Jan. 26 and Jan. 27, 2023, has led to some meaningful partnership opportunities with U.S. defense contractors that have already established military contracts. We are working to add more partners who have already established contracts with the U.S. military to submit more proposals for Phase II in April.
ZenaDrone has agreed to install its partner’s technology into its drones to test its technology. ZenaDrone will be part of the contract and, if awarded, will share proceeds of up to $1.2 million of the contract price.
Working with partners means ZenaDrone has accelerated the process, allowing it to submit for Phase II earlier than would otherwise be possible.
CEO Shaun Passley, Ph.D., said, “We met a lot of good companies during the January conference; they have been grateful to help us through the SBIR process. We look forward to working with them on Phase II.”
