Amazon partners with UK government to test drones

Endaba Group

Amazon are partnering with the UK Government to test technologies that may one day enable its Prime Air drone delivery service. Amazon has been given permission to explore beyond-line-of-sight operations in rural and suburban areas (currently not allowed), to test flights where a single person monitors and operates multiple autonomous drones and trial its sense and avoid technologies, all in airspace under 400 feet. With Amazon Prime Air, they’re developing a rapid delivery system that is safe, environmentally sound and enhances the services they already provide
