TORONTO, ONTARIO – March 8, 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 purchased from Canadian UAVs the first Sparrowhawk™ radar ground based detect and avoid system for deployment on DDC’s Care by Air delivery route. Sparrowhawk has been previously approved by Transport Canada to support beyond visual line of sight (“BVLOS”) operations.
The Care by Air route utilizes DDC’s patented drone delivery solution and runs from the logistics facility of DSV Air & Sea Inc. Canada (DSV) in Milton, Ontario to the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, for the purpose of delivering medical isotopes.
DDC has integrated Sparrowhawk at the DSV facility in Milton to support the Care by Air route initially, with plans to expand the use of Sparrowhawk to additional delivery routes in the future. Sparrowhawk has also been integrated into DDC’s proprietary FLYTE software, which will allow for all operations to be conducted in accordance with the Canadian Aviation Regulations and Transport Canada flight authorizations. Flights will continue to be remotely monitored by DDC from its Operations Control Centre located in Vaughan, Ontario.
DDC plans to work with Canadian UAVs and Transport Canada to obtain BVLOS approval for the Care by Air route initially and then seek to expand the approval to cover the entire range of the Sparrowhawk to support multiple routes developed in partnership with DSV and Air Canada.
“We are continually looking to partner with leaders in the UAV industry and as such we are excited to work with Canadian UAVs and their Sparrowhawk system. Canadian UAVs are recognized as a leader in this space, and we look forward to leveraging their technology on the Care by Air route initially and then potentially expanding to other routes in the future.” said Steve Magirias, CEO of DDC.
“From a single Sparrowhawk Radar, over 650km2 become available for coordinated drone operations. As our premier launch customer, DDC has wisely applied this technology for drone delivery, opening the possibility for wide area urban package delivery. This is an exciting time for our industry and for Canada.” said John Molberg, VP Innovation of Canadian UAVs
