According to the press release:
“The patent is directed to aspects of DDC’s proprietary FLYTE management, which is a core component of DDC’s drone delivery platform. Additionally, the patent is also directed to aspects of DDC’s ‘RAILWAY IN THE SKY’ concept that is intended to simplify routing and control of delivery drones particularly in crowded urban areas.
“This is our second issued United States Patent Office grant and provides protection for various aspects of our controlled access zones, DRONESPOT®.
