/Drone Delivery Canada unveils Condor large delivery UAS


Toronto-based Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) has unveiled its largest and longest-range cargo delivery unmanned aircraft system (UAS), the Condor.

The unmanned vertical-takeoff-and-landing aircraft has a payload capacity of 400 pounds and a flight range of up to 120 miles. Powered by a next-generation gas engine, the Condor is 22 feet long, just over five feet wide and seven feet tall. It has a 20-foot wingspan.

DDC said its latest UAS has been in development over the past year and pushes the limits in terms of cargo capacity and distance. The company also said it will work with Transport Canada to secure the approvals necessary to begin flight testing during the third quarter this year. 

The Condor is equipped with DDC’s proprietary FLYTE management system, which is the platform used in all of the company’s cargo delivery drones. This system was used in the fall last year during DDC’s operations in Moosonee and Moose Factory, Ontario, as part of Transport Canada’s beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) pilot project.

DDC is a drone technology company focused on the design, development and implementation of its proprietary logistics software platform. The company’s platform will be used as software as a service for government and corporate organizations.
