The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) is co-operating with Zing to test package delivery through the FAA’s new BEYOND program, reports a press release. This program is looking to expand operations that are Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS), while improving the public perception of unmanned craft and researching the economic and societal impacts.
Ian Annase, Founder and CEO of Zing, said, “It is an honor to be a part of the exclusive group of partners in Kansas who will be testing and implementing these cutting edge operations. We are grateful for the opportunity to be one of the first to implement and scale package delivery use cases that are Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS). We are especially excited to be testing and implementing NASA’s Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) system into our end-to-end drone delivery platform.”
Zing is a drone delivery platform which builds autonomous flight software and aerial logistics hardware. The company’s ambitious mission is to enable quick and eco-friendly drone delivery to every suburban neighbourhood across the globe.
