The United States Postal Service is investigating the feasibility of utilizing unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) or drones as delivery vehicles for mail as an integrated part of its vehicle delivery fleet, as well as to provide image and other data collection services.
According to the Federal Business Opportunities website:
“The Postal Service recognizes that the ability of UAS to supplement mail delivery and information collection can substantially benefit the country and further the development of other autonomous systems. The Postal Service seeks information from UAS operators and developers interested in providing aircraft and aircraft operations for delivery of mail and to collect geodetic/spatial data to improve all autonomous vehicle performance.
Responder’s final submission of information to this RFI must be received no later than 5:00 P.M. EST on November 4, 2019 and should be submitted via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
