Prototype Uncrewed Air System delivery aircraft development
This project will develop a prototype Uncrewed Air System (UAS) for long-range package delivery. The aircraft development program will take a systems engineering approach and include Industry 4.0 prototyping techniques to deliver a prototype in an accelerated time schedule.
The prototype will allow GAP Drone to develop an autonomous logistics network in rural and regional Australia, enhancing services currently experienced by Australians in these remote areas.
GAP Drone, in collaboration with Australia Post and Swinburne University of Technology’s Aerostructures Innovation Research Hub (AIR Hub), is developing an autonomous logistics service, using a bespoke designed UAS. The development of the service will focus on regional and remote Australia and assist in closing the gap to some of Australia’s most isolated communities, including First Nations communities.
The primary project objective is to design, develop, and test the prototype the GAP Drone UAS for long range logistics and delivery operations to support Australia Post’s air services business.
