Singaporean company Drone Solution Services will soon be offering a new altitude of support for UAV operators with the launch of the Centre of Drone Excellence.
Announced last week, the Centre will be highlighted at the upcoming Unmanned Systems Asia 2019 exposition April 9-11 in Singapore.
According to a company press release:
“The Centre — staffed with engineers from a myriad of drone related disciplines including mechanical, electrical, mechatronics, AI, acoustics/sonar and robotics engineering — represents the local interests of international companies having advanced aerial, undersea and terrestrial based drone technologies and associated products; providing them with marketing, sales, technical presence and engineering support in greater Asia.”
The Centre’s staff will provide product and technical presentations, lead demos and conduct product training and support. Members will also receive legal and government-relations services via the Centre.
The Centre also provides:
- Full administrative infrastructure and support staffing including office space, meeting/ conference/demo and board rooms;
- Member trade fair coordination — infrastructure and staffing as and where necessary;
- Multi-lingual staff with Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Bahasa Melayu, Bahasa Indonesia, Korean, Thai, Burmese, French, Italian, German, Dutch and English fluency.
Singapore continues to advance drone innovation across the sector:
Earlier this month, Airbus and Wilhelmsen launched a drone-delivery project based out of Singapore. A test flight launched from Marina South Pier and the autonomous drone flew along almost one mile through a pre-set flight corridor from land to a tug supply vessel, successfully dropping a three-pound cargo payload.
Last month, Airbus partnered with SingPost university to test drone deliver on campus. “Incoming packages are first loaded automatically onto the drone via a robotic arm at designated parcel stations,” says Airbus. “Drones launch and fly autonomously, delivering the package to delivery stations on the campus, where it is then stored in lockers for campus dwellers to retrieve it.”
