When we tried to transition from first-stage to mass production, we ran into DFM (design for manufacturing) issues with the electronics. It is in this ramp up we realized that a redesign of the main board was needed. We are proud to say that the new design is complete and the new boards have been delivered to the manufacturing facility. Components have been mounted to the boards and qualification testing will begin next week. After the testing, a handful of AR-1s will be built to run EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) testing and re-certify for FCC compliance. We are highly confident that this will solve all of the manufacturing issues we've encountered. Moreover, starting April 20th we will initiate a full-scale production run of the AR-1 at Flextronics. Many of these first production units will be used for final compliance and validation purposes; with an allocation of units to be delivered to customers upon all certification being granted.
We truly appreciate your patience and faith in SKULLY. We will keep you posted each step of the way.
