Next-generation drone company Aeronext Inc. (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Keisuke Toji, hereafter Aeronext) with leading technology supporter Leaguer Group Co. Ltd., (Shenzhen, China, 法人代表：Ji Shi Shan hereafter Leaguer) an auxiliary group of Shenzhen Tsinghua University Research Institute (hereafter RITS) in China, have signed an MOU to provide strategic support for business development of Aeronext in China.
Aeronext’s unique “4D GRAVITY®” technology for center of gravity control is a fundamental re-examination and development of the structure of UAV aircraft, and represents stability and reliability not possible with conventional drones. This means an expanded range of applications for drones. We have already announced several prototypes of drones equipped with 4D GRAVITY® in our industrial drone “Next” series, capable of a wide range of applications.
In May, we established a new subsidiary, Aeronext Shenzhen Ltd., in Shenzhen City to enhance our 4D GRAVITY® technology license business in the Chinese market.
A milestone in Chinese market development was the “Nanshan Entrepreneurship Star Contest 2018” competition held in Shenzhen last November, where won both the third place prize overall and the Intellectual Property Award. This event was held by Nanshan District People’s Government of Shenzhen City and the National Qualifying Round at “Nanshan Entrepreneurship Star Contest 2018 Shibuya” in Japan where Aeronext won was held by RITS and Leaguer. We are grateful for all of the support from Leaguer, RITS, as well as Shenzhen City Drone Industry Association regarding business development in China. We also grateful for the support from Mizuho bank, who was one of the support companies for the National Qualifying Round at “Nanshan Entrepreneurship Star Contest 2018 Shibuya”, ranging from preparation to actual establishment of operations in China.
