Drone Delivery Canada Corp.(DDC) is pleased to announce new Sparrow functionality that opens further healthcare, commercial and residential use cases, according to uasweekly.com.
The Company has successfully engineered and tested new payload drops for the Sparrow drone. This new functionality allows a package to be loaded at the point of origin, fly to a destination, hover at a lowered altitude, drop a payload without landing, and return to the point of origin. The Sparrow has a total flight range of up to 30km with a maximum payload capacity of approximately 4.3kg and operates with the Company’s advanced, automated and patented FLYTE software system.
“The payload drop system is now ready for commercial roll out,” said Michael Zahra, President & CEO of DDC. “This exciting new Sparrow functionality allows us to even further penetrate drone delivery applications, subject to Transport Canada regulations, in healthcare, pharmaceutical, emergency aid, commercial and residential markets while also effectively limiting person-to-person contact.”
Zahra continued, “DDC continues to be a leader in the drone logistics industry and we are in active discussions with numerous prospective customers to utilise this new functionality for drone deliveries.”
