Lausanne, Switzerland – We are delighted to announce the participation of RigiTech as the newest member of Drone Logistics Ecosystem (DLE). RigiTech is considered one of the largest medical drone delivery operators in Europe, with its headquarters in Switzerland. The company has recently received BVLOS approval from the French Civil Aviation Authorities. Representing a major milestone for RigiTech and its partner, French laboratory Biogroup, this route is the first approved recurrent drone delivery route to take place within controlled airspace in France, and one of the firsts in Europe. RigiTech joins DLE to collaborate with its existing partners to standardize the drone logistic industry, with regards to technical, operation and commercialization aspects.
“A central facet of our work for the future is airspace coexistence, working towards access to airspace, deconfliction, inter-platform communication and remote supervision. Collaborating with DLE partners in the drone delivery industry helps us approach complex obstacles like improving mobile connectivity for UASs, removing the need for ground-based operators and allowing multi-drone supervision in regulations.” – Adam Klaptocz, CEO and Co-Founder of RigiTech.
About Drone Logistics Ecosystem™

The aim of the DLE is to bring together stakeholders to collaborate on the standardization of the rapidly emerging industry.

In one year, DLE has expanded to include 46 organizations, consisting of 42 companies, 2 universities, Chesterfield County (Virginia, US), and the world’s largest drone association, Japan UAS Industrial Development Association (JUIDA), across 21 different countries. In this short period of time, we have kickstarted several international proof-of-concept projects among our members. Besides the technology collaborations, DLE offers a space for companies cooperating on business developments for cross-border market access through partnership i.e. local representation, agent, reseller, joint venture, etc.
