Angoka has acquired R4dar Technologies to extend its reach in the ground and air transport sectors. Angoka is an IoT company that focuses on protecting communication from machine to machine. The company is also a specialist in securing autonomous vehicles and protecting aircraft and the routes they travel from hacking or other cyber-based issues. R4dar Tech on the other hand is most renowned for its geospatial awareness device that allows drones to navigate and land safely without any needed communication from networks or any GPS locations. Angoka chair Steve Berry has said that R4dar Tech is making a ‘vital contribution towards autonomous transportation’. The two firms plan to combine their services so that they can boost drone safety while also creating safe air and road transport routes.
