This interesting announcement was shared via Amerisurv today as industry leader JAVAD has announced a a new UAS – and this one looks impressive! Some details from the article: “We did not retrofit a toy with GPS. We designed and developed TRIUMPH-F1 as we have all of our other products. ”
Well, regardless of what you think or how you feel, Amazon and UAV technology are now firmly associated with each other. I suppose the recent announcement (albeit as crazy as it may seem) is good for the industry [UAV industry] as a whole, however, I’m sure it’s a little frustrating to UAV solution providers like Trimble (think Gatewing) and others who have massive investments in the technology only to see Amazon trumping everyone in one giant marketing effort the day before cyber Monday! Personally, I’m thinking that Amazon will likely get FAA approval for “drone delivery” sometime close to when Hell freezes over… but hey, it should be fun to see them try.
