CHICAGO, IL, July 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – Epazz Inc. (OTC: EPAZ), a mission-critical provider of drone technology, cryptocurrency technology, blockchain mobile apps and cloud-based business software solutions, announced today that ZenaDrone, Inc. and Night Sun, LLC, a Native American corporation, have entered into a joint venture to sell and manufacture ZenaDrone 1000 on Native American tribal lands. The joint venture will enable ZenaDrone 1000 to be mass-produced for Native American tribes, the US Government, the US military and state governments.
The ZenaDrone 1000 has drawn the interest of Native American tribes from the RES 2023, which was held in Las Vegas in April. ZenaDrone, Inc. attended the trade show to provide information about how ZenaDrone 1000 can provide services for search and rescue, firefighting, cargo delivery and land surveys.
In this joint venture, the manufacturing facility will be located on tribal lands, providing ZenaDrone with tax and contract benefits. The facility will hire personnel from the tribal community for high-skilled jobs and will be located in Arizona. The first 10 drones from the Arizona facility will function as service drones, which is expected to earn over $100,000 per drone per year.
The drones from our Arizona facility will qualify as “Made in the USA.” We are in the process of acquiring a Green UAS certification, which will allow us to receive the Blue UAS certification.
CEO Shaun Passley, Ph.D., said, “We are excited about forming this joint venture with Night Sun, LLC. Many Native American tribes are ready to use ZenaDrone 1000; we needed to find a way to sell into the market.”
