Government of Canada Awards DDC First Contract For Heavy-Lift Condor Drone

Drone Delivery Canada Corp. (DDC) is pleased to announce that, with the assistance of its sales agent Air Canada, has signed a contract with the Canadian Government to work with Transport Canada in operating and evaluating DDC’s proprietary drone delivery platform using the Condor, DDC’s heavy-lift remote piloted aircraft. This is the  largest drone being developed by DDC at this time. The Condor has an approximate value of $1.2 million, and is with the Canadian government’s Innovative Solutions Canada program. DDC will provide Transport Canada with a Condor drone, and collaborate with Transport Canada in operating, testing and evaluating the capabilities of the drone drone solution until December 2023. There are 3 phases:

  • Short range flights
  • Long range endurance flights
  • Extreme environmental testing

The Condor is designed to carry about 20 cubic feet of cargo. It is 22 feet long, 5 feet wide and 7 feet tall. The Condor is capable of vertical takeoff and landing, and is equipped with the FLYTE management system (same platform used in all DDC cargo delivery drones). 

The Condor is expected to unlock a significant number of new potential use case opportunities in sectors such as mining, oil and gas, inspection, and emergency preparedness.

“We are extremely excited to provide Transport Canada with our Condor drone and to be involved in the Innovation Solutions Canada program. We look forward to working with Transport Canada to display the full capabilities of the Condor and to potentially offer the Condor platform to all interested government of Canada parties,” said Steve Magirias, CEO of DDC. “This contract is made possible through the talent and effort of the DDC team which has worked tirelessly to get our Condor drone developed to achieve this milestone along with potential future milestones.”

Drone Delivery Canada Corp. (DDC) is an award-winning, drone using, drone technology company focused on the design, development, and implementation of its proprietary logistics software platform. The Company’s platform is intended to be a global Software as a Service (SaaS) model for government and corporate organizations. Drone Delivery Canada Corp. is a publicly listed company trading on the TSX Venture Exchange as well.
