Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) has been granted its second patent by the United States Patent Office, this time pertaining to its flight management system.
The proprietary FLYTE management, along with DDC’s Railway in the Sky concept, has been granted Patent 10,625,879.
The Railway in the Sky technology is intended to simplify routing and control of delivery drones particularly in crowded urban areas.
DDC is currently seeking patent protection for other aspects of its technology in the US and other countries.
“This is our second issued United States Patent Office grant and provides protection for various aspects of our controlled access zones, Dronespot,” commented Paul Di Benedetto, chief technology officer of Drone Delivery Canada.
He continued: “Dronespot may provide a secure enclosure and other elements to control access, both to secured goods in transit by UAV and to control interaction between individuals and UAVs. This patent win again demonstrates our industry lead in this very disruptive industry.”
“On behalf of the Company I would like to thank all of our dedicated staff who were integral in this accomplishment.”
DDC’s first patent was granted in July of last year. This second patent expands upon the terms of the first.
