Robotic Skies Raises New Investment to Grow Drone Support Services

Robotic Skies, Inc, the first and only global maintenance marketplace for commercial Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), announced today a new round of funding to support continued growth and technology development. San Francisco-based Thayer Ventures is leading the round with participation from existing investors Boeing HorizonX Global Ventures, Cerracap Ventures, Kickstart Seed Fund, Sun Mountain Capital, and new investors Side X Side Management.
