History in the making
ZIPPERMAST establishes itself as a single-source technology for (un-) manned systems and highly demanding applications. The implementation of the first larger orders starts.
ZIPPERMAST starts developing the first subsystems. The compact and robust long-range surveillance camera system CORE LRSCS, developed on the basis of a COTS component from FUJIFILM, manages to enter the market within just 9 months of the initial idea.
Progenox GmbH, a proven service provider in the security sector specialized in unmanned and power supply systems, is merged with ZIPPERMAST GmbH and offers an ideal addition due to its expertise and experience.
Sale of first prototype systems to customers in various market segments. Establishment of the technology through intensive conceptual and real deployment tests in collaboration with users.
The technology transfer agreement with the inventor of the ZIPPERMAST technology George Woodruff in the USA marks the kick-off for the foundation of the ZIPPERMAST GmbH. Frank Woodcock advances the further development of the technology until it is ready for serial production. Both entrepreneurs share many years of experience in the defense and mechanical engineering sectors.
