Intel Invests in Delair to Expand Drone Software Solution

France-based Delair, a global supplier of commercial drone solutions, recently secured Series B funding from Intel Capital.

For the past year, Delair and Intel have been collaborating on the Intel Insight Platform, a data processing, visualization, analytics and reporting service that allows customers to store organize, share and harness data from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The new funding will be used to further accelerate the development and adoption of the platform.

“This investment, built on an ongoing relationship with Delair, will help make aerial-based data collection and analysis an effective business intelligence approach for more enterprises,” says Anil Nanduri, vice president and general manager of Intel’s drones group. “Delair and Intel are continuing to drive forward innovation and capabilities to enable a new level of digital transformation by customers.”

Michael de Lagarde, CEO of Delair, adds, “Data is the future of the commercial drone business, and that’s why we are excited about this investment from Intel Capital. Intel brings a wealth of technical expertise and experience, as well as new enterprise customers. Whilst Delair’s innovation on the hardware side of our UAV offering is well-recognized, our relationship with Intel provides us with increased resources to build out the critical data analysis software components of our UAV solution – an area where we believe we can truly differentiate and bring additional value to customers.”
