NicaDrone, was created in 2011, informally, by its experimental nature, and duly legalized on February 7, 2013 with foreign capital.
The original idea was to create an accessory for drones (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) that would allow the delivery of packages with quadrocopters, given the  difficulties in transportation in the  rural areas of Nicaragua. The idea of ​​a magnetic release mechanism for the package was then conceived  instead of a mechanical release. This would save weight and thus prolong  flight time enhancing the performance capabilities of the UAV.
 During the following years of research and development in cooperation with Zubax Robotics we were able to create an EPM (Permanent Electro Magnet) of superior quality and great versatility with may applications. Constant improvement  of the technology has put us at the forefront of innovation and development in the electromagnetic industrial sector.
Nicadrone in 2017 sold its intellectual property to Altius Space Machines,  a company based in Colorado USA, with which we will continue working, developing an advanced version for use in space and also producing the the EPM under  license in Nicaragua. A version 4 of the EPM with enhanced performance characteristics is in the development stage.
