Skyway Technologies, an air traffic navigation service provider, and Zing Drone Delivery, recently announced a strategic partnership to provide alternative delivery options across the US, reports a press release.
Skyway is an air traffic navigation Provider of Services for UAM (PSU) designed for autonomous aircraft and logistical services. Its goal is to create a safe, scalable infrastructure to support “the large number of potential airborne vehicles poised for flight within the next decade.”
Zing plans to take part in Skyway’s initial beta testing of the platform in Florida in order to deconflict with other drones, air taxis, and other airborne vehicles that are flying in the same vicinity. The release says, “Zing plans to incorporate Skyway’s Application Programming Interface (API) into its proprietary autonomous flight software to help further expand its services.”
And continues, “This partnership will enable Zing to add another level of safety to their drone delivery platform as well as remain compliant with federal, state, and local procedures and ordinances.”
