TORONTO, ONTARIO – April 24, 2023 – Drone Delivery Canada Corp. (TSXV: FLT; OTC QX: TAKOF; Frankfurt:  A3DP5Y or ABBA.F) (the “Company” or “DDC”) is pleased to announce its 2023 financial results, and to provide a general corporate update.

The Company is pleased to report that in 2023 it achieved its highest revenue to date, earning revenue of $1,239,356, which represents an increase of 50% in year over year growth. This was driven primarily by revenue from the contract with the Government of Canada related to testing of the Condor, which concluded in December 2023 and completion of the first milestone of the Canary testing contract with the Department of National Defence (“DND”). In addition, the Company reduced its net loss in 2023 by $3,450,067 or 26% from $13,414,231 to $9,964,164, largely due to a reduction in operating expenditures driven by personnel, and research and development expenditures. As such, the Company was able to reduce its cash used in operating activities from $11,943,111 to $7,676,569.

The fourth quarter of 2023 was focused on servicing the DND contract and the implementation of the new DroneCare route, which became operational subsequent to December 31, 2023.

DDC is also pleased to provide the following general corporate update on its activities:

Canary Development

During the year ended December 31, 2023, the Company completed the development of the Canary and deployed it to operate as part of the DND contract. As part of its continuous improvement plan, the Company concurrently began integrating a new autopilot which will enable plug and play capabilities with other integrated technologies such as C2 link and GPS systems and is expected to result in improved flight performance.

Detect and Avoid Technology

The Company is also working towards the further development of detect-and-avoid (“DAA”) systems, which are intended to facilitate beyond visual line of sight operations, which has the potential to significantly reduce operational costs, and provide a robust solution to meet the demands of the Company’s prospective customers. The Company previously announced the deployment of a ground-based DAA system acquired from Canadian UAVs Inc. at the location of its strategic partner DSV Air & Sea Inc. Canada in Milton, Ontario, which is intended to support the Sparrow and Canary drones.

During the year ended December 31, 2023, the Company was able to complete the radar performance assessment, following a repositioning of the system as the system performance was suboptimal in its original selected position and has improved the detection rate for the new DroneCare route. In December of 2023, DDC received SFOC approval for VO BLVOS on its DroneCare route, allowing the removal of several visual observers from the operation. Subsequent, to December 31, 2023, the Company submitted an SFOC for a complete BVLOS waiver for the current DroneCare route. This BVLOS waiver would permit the removal of all visual observers from the DroneCare route.

In addition, subsequent to December 31, 2023, the Company has begun evaluating an onboard DAA system for the Canary and is also concurrently evaluating a second ground based DAA system. The Company intends on evaluating all three systems and the implications of integrating such technologies into the Company’s proprietary FLYTE software.

“The DDC team has been focused on executing a key set of objectives to realize the full potential of our complete logistics solution. This includes the drones, required infrastructure, DAA systems as well as our FLYTE software which ties it all together. We have made solid progress to position us for projects at scale when the regulatory environment enables this.” said Steve Magirias, CEO of DDC.
