Greek Islands connected by BVLOS drone deliveries of parcels and emergency goods

Drone operator RigiTech has launched its Eiger drone system in Greece in collaboration with Probotek, Uni Systems, ACS, Pleiades IoT Innovation Cluster and Drops Smart Hubs.

On 8 September, RigiTech’s Eiger drone carries out the first test operations, managed remotely via RigiCloud from Kos and Pserimos. The Eiger performed an 8-minute flight connecting points over the ocean that are 12 km apart. Safety remains a top priority in all RigiTech BVLOS operations, and thus all project partners are working closely with Greek aviation authorities to ensure strict compliance with safety regulations and air traffic management.

The partnership between these Greek industry players applies drone technology to applications such as logistics and emergency services. The project’s primary objective is to validate the feasibility and efficiency of BVLOS drone delivery, addressing the challenges posed by Greece’s island geography. “RigiTech is proud to partner with companies that are committed to the optimisation of aerial logistics, especially when the end goal is connecting remote areas that can quickly benefit from this new aerial solution, offering faster and more efficient logistics”, said David Rovira, Chief Business Officer and co-founder at RigiTech.

The project is focused on the timely transportation of emergency supplies, medicines, and vital resources to communities.
