A2Z Drone Delivery Expands Test Facility to Develop Tomorrow’s Drone Delivery Solutions Today

A2Z Drone Delivery, Inc, developer of commercial drone delivery solutions, announced plans to expand its Ground Zero Test Facility in Anji County outside Shanghai, China. Situated among a scenic mountainous bamboo forest, the location allows A2Z Drone Delivery engineers to test new drone solutions under real-life conditions in diverse topography and environmental conditions. For just over a year the team working from the Ground Zero Test Facility has been conducting drone deliveries leveraging the company’s latest commercial delivery drones, and the expanded facilities will allow A2Z Drone Delivery to further scale the reach of these consumer services.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, A2Z Drone Delivery extended its footprint to Anji County where drone regulations are distinctly advanced from those in operation in the United States. The regulatory environment there has encouraged drone delivery for years. Most critically, A2Z Drone Delivery is already conducting beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) operations in the region with permissions and cooperation of the local government. From its test facility, A2Z Drone Delivery has already been conducting autonomous residential deliveries of medicines, COVID test kits, as well as food orders from local providers. These consumer deliveries not only provide a valuable service to residents of the rural area but allow A2Z Drone Delivery developers to learn how people interact with its drone systems in real life.

“To truly push the boundaries of autonomous unmanned drone delivery our development team needs to be able to test our latest delivery drone systems under real-life conditions,” said Aaron Zhang, Founder and CEO of A2Z Drone Delivery, Inc. “As the US regulations expand to compete with those in operation around the world, we will be ready to take to the skies with the most cutting-edge systems that have been proven safe, reliable and economical thanks to the testing and delivery missions we are able to do in Anji right now.”

A2Z Drone Delivery’s lineup of drone delivery hardware is focused on its core mission of creating systems that address consumer-protection concerns with burgeoning residential drone deliveries while providing commercial logistics operators with a capable and proven delivery ecosystem. By conducting deliveries from altitude, A2Z Drone Delivery’s solutions protect recipients from spinning UAV propellers, while mitigating privacy concerns of low-flying drones and abating intrusive rotor noise.

The company’s commercial drone delivery solutions are currently deployed with commercial operators around the world. A2Z Drone Delivery’s integrated cargo drone, the RDST, and its purpose-built Rapid Delivery System drone winch are employed by customers in diverse applications from delivering life-saving supplies for search and rescue missions to aiding in logistics deliveries to offshore energy installations. With its unique ability to carry any size payload, without the need for specialty payload boxes, the RDST is able to fit seamlessly into any logistics workflow. The A2Z Drone Delivery user interface was designed to simplify cargo deliveries featuring pre-planned delivery routing and one-touch autonomous mission execution.
