Solving the “Pizza” Problem in Drone Delivery

Both pilots and companies are navigating a thin line between security and innovation. Host Grant Guillot talks with leaders, influencers, and experts across the drone industry to guide us through the complex web of technology and policy in the United States.

 

From unmanned balloons launched in France back in the late 1700s, to the American Armed Forces attaching a camera to a kite for reconnaissance during the Spanish-American war, to lightning bugs used in combat during the 1960s, to the climate and environment monitoring drones of the mid-90s, to a popularity explosion as a recreational tech toy that happened around 6 years ago, UAVs have come a long way, baby! However, after some near misses with commercial aircrafts back in 2016, both the pilots that fly and the businesses that use drones have been navigating a thin line between security and innovation.

By leveraging their clients’ current infrastructure, Deuce Drone designs, builds, and operates drone delivery systems, transforming retail stores into customer fulfillment centers. Their cost-effective, technology-driven solution for same-day delivery allows brick and mortar clients to compete with major eCommerce players, helping to solve the last mile delivery problem by enabling drone shipment from existing stores. And on this episode of MarketScale’s Drones in America, Rhett Ross, CEO of Deuce Drone—a 30-year veteran of the aerospace and engineering management industries—joins host Grant Guillot to discuss the inroads his company is making in the drone delivery sector, their approach in overcoming packaging obstacles, and the FAA regulatory issues they face and certifications they have undergone to enable their brick and mortar clients to compete in an increasingly eCommerce economy.

“The complexity of managing a drone in suburban airspace—thinking about how you deal with known and unknown obstacles, both stationary and moving—is really what’s going to make this technology and this service a success,” Ross explained.
