== Background and Identifications == Parrot SA is a French wireless products manufacturer based in Paris, France. Parrot specialized in technologies involving voice recognition and signal processing for embedded products and remotely controlled flying machines or drones. Parrot also develops chipsets, noise reduction and echo-cancellation algorithms, Bluetooth software stack, and end-user applications (Bluetooth hands-free car kits). Parrot introduced its first drone, the Parrot AR.Drone in January 2010. The AR.Drone is piloted over Wi-Fi with a smartphone and Open API game development platform, ARdrone.org. In 2012, Parrot bought 57% of SenseFly, a Swiss drone company, and 25% of Pix4D, a Swiss photogrammetry company. In 2014, Parrot introduced their Mini-Drones “Rolling Spider” and “Jumping Sumo” and increased its ownership in Pix4D to 57%. In May 2014, Parrot announced the AR Drone 3.0 and an option for a Skycontroller, which allows the AR Drone 3.0 to fly up to two kilometers. Check your state or country’s drone flight regulations before flying; in the United States, drone pilots are required to keep line-of-sight to their drone, even if the machine is capable of flying farther. In 2015, Parrot SA created two subsidiaries: Parrot Automotive and Parrot Drones. In 2016, Parrot SA released the Disco FPV, the world’s first smart flying fixed-wing drone. In May 2019, Parrot was selected by the United States military to make a reconnaissance drone. == Additional Information == * [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parrot_SA|Wikipedia: Parrot SA] * [https://www.parrot.com/us/drones/|Parrot Drones Official Website] * [https://dronerush.com/parrot-drones-guide-4147/|DroneRush: Parrot Drones Guide]
