Atlanta (April 2016) – Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP, is now representing SmartC2, which develops and licenses software to manage commercial drone operations.
SmartC2 produces VirtualAirBoss™ software. The product’s Comply and Fly™ software infrastructure is designed to manage aerial fleets with multiple cameras and sensors, while automatically complying with FAA regulations and corporate policies. Preconfigured templates let users of various skill levels easily use the software for scheduling, maintenance, payload management, FAA compliance, cost allocation and more.
SmartC2 President and CEO Stuart Rudolph says MMM is the logical choice for a cutting-edge company.
“From the start, I have been impressed with the firm’s broad experience and expertise, in particular their thorough understanding of the technology startup space,” Rudolph said. “They are capable and willing to provide services beyond traditional legal consultation such as connecting us with sources of capital, which as an early-stage startup is critical to SmartC2’s success.”
The North Dakota-based company’s clients include corporations, aviation service providers and individual drone operators. It is also a finalist in the XPONENTIAL Startup Showdown, a competition hosted by industry group Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI.)
“SmartC2 is also a great fit for MMM, which represents many early stage technology businesses,” said MMM Partner John Fry, who chairs the UAS/UAV/Drone Practice group. “Our collaborative team covers a number of practice areas including intellectual property, venture capital and private equity funding, software licensing, privacy and data breach issues, government compliance and others. We also serve companies in areas including insurance, real estate, technology and others, which may eventually use or operate drones in their businesses.”
