SHOHAM, Israel, Oct. 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mobilicom Limited (Mobilicom or the Company, ASX: MOB) is pleased to provide this activity update for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 (Q3 FY22), along with the Company’s Appendix 4C cash flow report.

Operational Overview

During the third quarter, Mobilicom continued to execute its growth strategy while expanding operations in the US – the world’s largest drone market for defense and commercial applications. Mobilicom secured new and repeat purchase orders, fulfilled existing contracts, and was awarded a new R&D grant, recognizing its industry-leading innovation.

New and repeat orders

During the third quarter, Mobilicom secured numerous new and repeat purchase orders from its global customer base of drone and robotics manufacturers. These included an initial order of SkyHopper COMBO by the Israel Minister of Defense (IMOD) for its small drone fleet solution for intelligence, reconnaissance, and homeland security applications. The SkyHopper COMBO is recognized for its industry-leading line of sight (LOS) and beyond-visual-line-of sight (BVOS) capability, enabled by secured direct software defined radio (SDR) data link or one of two cellular operators. In addition, the SkyHopper COMBO can scale for simultaneous use of small drone fleets by multiple teams in multiple locations.

Repeat orders reflect customers progressing from initial design wins, testing and validation, through to deployment and sales of these new drones and robotic platforms. Given the cyclical nature of Mobilicom’s go-to-market strategy, the Company foresees a step-change in order volume and revenue as its customers’ manufacturing demand scales to support sales of these new platforms.

Commenting on the Company’s Q3 2022 performance, Mobilicom CEO Oren Elkayam said, “Mobilicom’s dual listing on the NASDAQ is game changing for our growth trajectory. It enables us to build our presence in the US, the world’s largest and most mature drone market, and EU at a time when sophisticated small drones and robotics are playing an important role in modern warfare. Our new US operations are already providing additional opportunities to engage and build credibility with prospective Tier-1 drone customers, reflected in our increased collaboration with US-based Censys Technologies and Space Florida. Importantly, US operations are an essential security requirement for many leading drone manufacturers, particularly those supplying the Department of Defense.

Our earlier design win customers are steadily progressing towards commercialization, which will deliver increased orders and revenue for Mobilicom as these new drones are deployed and sold at scale. As many of these initial design wins incorporate our hardware components, we see additional opportunities to provide these customers with our complementary cybersecurity and software solutions. While supply chain challenges have delayed the fulfilment of some orders during the quarter, we expect to deliver the remainder of our backlog during the last quarter of this calendar year and next year’s first quarter.

Mobilicom’s latest R&D Innovation grant is recognition of our cutting-edge technology solutions for small, unmanned drone and robotics systems. Our latest Space Florida R&D project will see us further enhance auto redundancy capability, using satellites to enable drone operation in remote areas with little or no network coverage. This capability will be highly sought after by both defense and commercial applications.”

Awarded new A$408,000 R&D grant

During the third quarter, Mobilicom was awarded a new A$408,000 research and development grant under the Space Florida innovation project for the development of a Multi-Link (MLU) communications system. The new solution will incorporate three concurrent transmitting transceivers (SDR, cellular, satellite) for auto redundancy capability when operating beyond visual-line-of-sight. The MLU will include the use of satellite connections for redundancy, enabling the operation of unmanned systems in areas with no or insufficient network coverage.

The new grant extends Mobilicom’s partnership with US drone company Censys Technologies and is part of an R&D project with a gross value of A$1.4 million.

New product

Mobilicom continues to improve and expand its end-to-end offering, launching SkyHopper Micro product designed to enable mass deployment of small drone fleets. This new product was designed in collaboration with small-drone Tier-1 manufacturers to cater for growing demand for high-use applications including commercial inspections, disaster relief and defense intelligence or loitering drones. SkyHopper Micro is equipped with ICE Cybersecurity software and delivers secure long range and Non-Line of Sight (N-LOS) communication for small commercial and industrial drones. It is in compliance with the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), a key requirement for US government agencies.

Listed on the NASDAQ

In August, Mobilicom commenced trading on NASDAQ under the ticker symbol MOB, following an oversubscribed A$19.2 million initial public offering (IPO). Under the IPO, Mobilicom issued 3.22 million units at US$4.13 per unit. Each unit consisting of one American Depositary Share (ADS), representing 275 shares of the Company, and one warrant to purchase one ADS.

Funds are being used to expand Mobilicom’s operations in the USA, increase sales and marketing activities, support research and development, accelerate the commercialization of its world-first cybersecurity and cloud software solutions, in addition to providing working capital.

Sales & marketing activities

Mobilicom continues to expand its sales and marketing activities, engaging with leading drone and robotics manufacturers, end customers, and potential partners at key industry conferences during the quarter. These included leading international trade show and conference, Commercial UAV Expo, focused on the integration and operation of UAS. Mobilicom also participated at DroneX in the UK, which showcased the industry’s latest products, innovations and technologies.

In September 2022, Mobilicom launched a new corporate website to better educate customers, partners and investors on its technology, product offering, applications, and addressable markets. The new website features enhanced functionality and navigation capability, improving access to comprehensive product information and ASX/NASDAQ announcements. The new website can be accessed at ir.mobilicom.com.


Mobilicom had a confirmed order backlog of A$790,000 at the end of September 2022.

Quarterly total cash receipts totaled A$1.1 million, up 20% over PCP. Higher advertising and marketing costs of A$401,000 reflect increased investment to secure new Tier-1 customers in the US and EU.

Mobilicom is well-funded for growth with a cash balance of A$22.2 million as of September 30, 2022, following its A$19.2 million initial public offering in the US, followed by A$3.4 million exercise of tradable warrants.

Related party payments noted in Section 6 of the accompanying Appendix 4C relate to payment of executive and non-executive Director fees and salaries.


Mobilicom’s 40 design wins provide a strong foundation for long-term revenue growth.  New drones and robotics incorporate the Company’s smart solution components and are maturing to deployment and commercialization. A number of these design wins are nearing commercialization, which is expected to deliver a significant step change in order volume for Mobilicom over the coming quarters. While supply chain headwinds remain a factor in meeting customer demand, the Company maintains its expectation of fulfilling order backlog during the final quarter of 2022 and first quarter of 2023.

Mobilicom’s end-to-end value proposition is unique within the fast-growing small drone and robotics market, enabling cross-selling of additional solutions to its existing customer base. The Company’s hardware and software solutions are field-proven and offer significant competitive advantages such as outstanding performance and security in harsh environmental conditions – critical for defense and industrial applications.
