EXCLUSIVE FAA APPROVAL CRITICAL TO COMMERCIAL MARKETS First mover advantage defended by critical IP, trade secrets, and experience Flight Beyond - Line - of - Sight (BVLOS) Key to permitting automated operation, drones must not require a pilot to be on - site with eyes on the drone during operation. No Visual Observers or Humans Required Also, it must be permitted that no humans of any kind are required to be present on - site while the drone is flying. Without this ability, true automation is not possible. In - Person Preflight Checks Not Required In addition, humans cannot be required to be present during any other stage of operation, such as pre - flight visual inspections of the aircraft. Flight Over Roads Permitted Also critical, the Scout system is permitted to transit over roads in the areas in which we operate without on - site human supervision. "This authorization marks a seminal legal milestone, one that paves the way for developers in the drone industry to expand operations for pilot - less aircraft.” Historic Milestone 23



WIDE - RANGING APPLICABILITY OF FAA APPROVAL Unique approval opens a large, commercial market for American Robotics Important Requirements • Rural locations with population density < 370 people per sq. mile • Class G airspace • Under 400 feet altitude • Requires site - by - site additions to waiver to be approved • What does this all mean?
