US: PrecisionHawk will announce its fifth acquisition in the last nine months. Starting with Droners.io and Airvid in February, then InspecTools and HAZON Inc. in September, and now one of the nation’s largest engineering and construction firms, PrecisionHawk is ultimately betting that its long-term success depends on how well it builds industry expertise and rides up the consolidation curve.
