CHICAGO, IL - (NewMediaWire) - February 07, 2024 -  Epazz, Inc. (OTC Pink: EPAZ), a mission-critical provider of drone technology, blockchain mobile apps, and cloud-based business software solutions, has announced today that its holdings company ZenaDrone, Inc., a company known for its multi-patented drone technology, is excited to announce flight demonstrations of ZenaDrone 1000 with several units of the US Air Force.

The intentional design of these phases pushes pioneering businesses like ZenaDrone to the forefront of defense technology innovation.

“We've been showcasing ZenaDrone 1000 in several and continuous flight demonstrations, which gained critical support from the US Air Force and US Defense Department personnel. Our team is working diligently to exceed the expectations of the Phase 1 initiative and move seamlessly into the execution of Phase 2, driving our mission to contribute to the safety and efficiency of defense operations,” commented Shaun Passley, Ph.D., CEO of Epazz, Inc. and ZenaDrone, Inc.

These demonstrations are vital for the proposal of Phase 2 and will also cement the position of ZenaDrone as a leader in advancing drone technology within military applications.

The demonstrations have been meticulously planned to provide an in-depth view of the capabilities and advancements integrated into the ZenaDrone 1000. The success of these events is expected to pave the way for future research, development, and potential deployment, marking a milestone achievement for ZenaDrone and its dedicated team.
