Drone logistics company Swoop Aero and drone safety technology firm Iris Automation are joining forces to offer safety-focused beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) drone delivery solutions to clients across the globe.
The announcement comes in the wake of Swoop Aero’s recent unveiling of a new aircraft, Kite. According to the Australia-based company, Kite is the most advanced aircraft in its category to progress through the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification program in the US. As part of its safety features, Kite supports the integration of Iris Automation’s Casia detect-and-avoid (DAA) technology which detects other aircraft and makes intelligent decisions about the threat they may pose to the drone.
It’s worth noting that Swoop Aero recently announced medical supply delivery operations with EBOS Healthcare in Australia and joined New Zealand’s Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment (MBIE) airspace integration trial program….
