INTER ISLAND TRANSPORT

In May 2021, British Royal Mail launched the first trial of autonomous, Beyond-Visual-Line-Of-Sight (BVLOS) drone flights between the UK mainland and the Isle of Scilly, delivering Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), COVID testing kits and other mail.

We are ready to deploy our cargo drones for inter-island transport.

OPEN PIT MINE LOGISTICS

Across the mining industry, drones are demonstrating exceptional results by enabling much greater data collection, enhancing safety and improving productivity. Specifically designed to fly industrial missions, our cargo drones enable new ways to do airborne tasks such as automating cargo transport, delivering critical supplies, and reaching difficult places with medicine, tools, and parts.

REMOTE OIL & GAS LOGISTICS

Drones deliver critical supplies to remote oil and gas operations. In addition to other duties that were previously carried out by helicopter – dramatically reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Norway led the way in 2020 with the world’s first offshore drone delivery from Mongstad, Norway, to a platform 100 km away. Our drone transport solutions can carry payloads of 50lbs/23kg, fly 100mi/160 km, a speed of 60mph/97kmh, and endurance of 90mins. Their robust design makes them the ideal choice for any remote oil or gas operation.

INDUSTRIAL DRONE DELIVERY

PUBLIC SAFETY

Drones have the potential to dramatically improve and expand law enforcement and firefighting capabilities. Uses go from surveying active fire hotspots to delivering supplies, drones are tools government agencies can use to aid public safety.

We expect drone adoption within public safety globally to accelerate once regulatory concerns are addressed, and our pilot programs are an important step in that direction.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE

We have developed and demonstrated Drone Enabled Emergency Response solutions that we continue to develop and commercialize. For the demonstration, we used DJI Matrices 300, and as the solution evolves we will include heavier payloads, longer endurance, and all-weather drone platforms suited to the individual needs of the customer. The solution includes droneports, similar to the HIVE droneport which is available for continuous autonomous remote operations.

REMOTE BVLOS OPERATIONS

Volatus is working on remote autonomous Beyond-Visual-Of-Site operations and customizing solutions for multiple use cases.

Through our partnership with Indigenous Aerospace,  we are ensuring that the First Nations communities we partner with in Canada retain the commercial and training benefits of drone technology.

LOGISTICS

Across the globe, regulations are evolving, and pilot programs are expanding.

There are an increasing number of successful pilot programs. Since 2019, more than 8,000 laboratory samples were transported. The network expanded in 2020 to become the first hub-and-spoke model for drone deliveries in the US.

In Canberra, Australia, in 2019, freight was transported by drone over 3,000 times over 18-months.

However, widespread delivery operations will require integrated air traffic management systems, universal safety rules, and comprehensive drone communication standards. We are working with and supporting regulators in the countries in which we operate, as subject matter experts, to assist regulators in their progression towards full adoption of unmanned aircraft.
