Drone Delivery Canada Corp has signed a collaboration agreement with Bell Mobility to work together for a three year term in respect of the development of certain products and services in order to improve technology as it relates to 5G network and multi-access edge computing for autonomous drone performance. The collaboration is expected to lead to new solutions that will be revenue generating for DDC and will focus on the development of technologies that will evaluate, in a controlled environment, new capabilities to support Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS), Command and Control (C2), Remote Identification (Remote ID), and Unmanned Aerial System Traffic Management (UTM), based on 5G and Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC).
The Collaboration Agreement represents a strategic initiative of DDC to drive further enhancements to its proprietary drone delivery platform and its Flyte software solution. It is intended that any technical advancements that result from the collaboration with Bell will be adopted by DDC across its full fleet of delivery drones, including the Condor heavy lift drone, which is currently undergoing development and commercial testing. As may be applicable, all operations pursuant to the Collaboration Agreement will be conducted in accordance with the Canadian Aviation Regulations and Transport Canada flight authorisations.
“Bell is excited to collaborate with Drone Delivery Canada to explore new capabilities that will leverage the speed, low latency and coverage of Bell’s 5G network, our IoT connectivity and breadth of solutions to enable autonomous drone delivery and related services. We’re committed to fostering the growth of companies like DDC and next-generation technologies to support Canada’s growth and industry in the years to come and look forward to collaborating further with DDC” said Charlie Wade, Vice President, Products and Services at Bell Mobility.
