TEL AVIV, Israel – February 20, 2018 –  Airobotics, a global leader in fully automated industrial drones, today announced that it is honored among the Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Israel in Fast Company‘s world’s Most Innovative Companies ranking.

Airobotics has developed a fully automated end-to-end drone solution, used for collecting data and gaining aerial insights. This first of its kind solution reduces risks and costs associated with drone operations while improving efficiency and increasing safety.

They also received a 2017 Edison Award, honoring the best in innovation and excellence in the development of new products and services.

“We are honored that our vision for deriving greater value from fully-automated industrial drones has been recognized by Fast Company,” said Ran Krauss, CEO and Co-Founder at Airobotics. “We are committed to continuing to meet market challenges and expectations of innovation, in-line with Fast Company’s proud tradition.”

Fast Company‘s Most Innovative Companies (MIC) lists recognize pioneering companies across 36 categories, from artificial intelligence to wellness. More than three dozen Fast Company editors, reporters, and contributors surveyed thousands of companies—many of which were identified by a new MIC submission process—to create these lists. Airobotics is in good company in this year’s Most Innovative Companies issue, which includes other leading businesses such as Apple, Netflix, Tencent, Square, and Amazon.

MIC is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy. “This year’s MIC list is an inspiring and insightful window into how many companies have embraced innovation and are working to make meaningful change,” said Fast Company deputy editor David Lidsky, who oversaw the issue with senior editor Amy Farley.
