TORONTO, ONTARIO – March 28, 2023 – Drone Delivery Canada Corp. (TSXV: FLT; OTC QX: TAKOF; Frankfurt: A3DP5Y or ABBA.F) (the “Company” or “DDC”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Pegasus Imagery Ltd. (“Pegasus”) to work together to develop and implement on board detect and avoid technology (“DAA”) for DDC’s heavy lift Condor remote piloted aircraft (“RPA”).
The basis of the development effort will be to integrate Pegasus’ proprietary A3S™ DAA system onto the Condor. A3S™ is an Autonomous Airspace Awareness System using sensor fusion to merge onboard sensor data with artificial intelligence to detect, track and autonomously avoid other aircraft and obstacles.
This project builds on DDC’s efforts to implement DAA technology into all its RPAs to move towards fully automated flights for all operations to be conducted in accordance with the Canadian Aviation Regulations and Transport Canada flight authorizations, while being remotely monitored by DDC through its proprietary FLYTE software from its Operations Control Centre located in Vaughan, Ontario.
With the Pegasus A3S™ onboard DAA system integrated into the Condor, DDC would have a full suite of DAA systems integrated into its patented drone delivery technology enabling automated flights and enable DDC to increase its offerings into potentially more complex air spaces, while significantly increasing operational efficiency.
“We are thrilled to work with the Pegasus team on this exciting project which represents a final piece towards achieving fully automated flights for the Condor RPA. Cole and his team have made tremendous progress on their proprietary A3S™ system and we are excited to integrate this technology onto our Condor,” said Steve Magirias, CEO of DDC.
“A3S™ unlocks the full potential of the Condor RPA and will enable Drone Delivery Canada to commercialize heavy lift cargo delivery for industry and government customers at scale, “said Pegasus CEO Cole Rosentreter. “This will shape the next century of middle-mile logistics, through a flexible, scalable and certifiable safety system” said Pegasus CEO Cole Rosentreter. “We’re excited to be working with Steve and the DDC team to launch this game-changing capability together in Canada and future global markets.”
