Acquisition Accelerates DroneUp’s Tech IP
DroneUp, a leading global drone flight services provider, announced today that it had acquired Web Teks, Inc.
Web Teks, a pioneer in enterprise software solutions unique to the UAS industry, designed and developed all of DroneUp’s patented and proprietary platforms. The combination will create a closely collaborative environment that will allow DroneUp to accelerate innovation further.
“It’s an exciting transition for the Web Teks team. We have been intricately involved from the beginning. Industry knowledge and a sense of pride and ownership will serve DroneUp well. It makes perfect sense,” stated Dyanne Walker, Founder and CEO of Web Teks, Inc.
DroneUp’s technology solutions and business contributions have evolved to meet the demand of dynamic and maturing markets.

John Vernon, Chief Technology Officer, will lead the post-acquisition team.
“From the beginning, our partnership with Web Teks enabled innovative and robust product strategies that led to our patented platforms as well as essential integrations,” stated John Vernon. “By bringing this talent and dedication to the core DroneUp team, our unified focus will propel opportunities to innovate even more quickly and strategically.”
