Amazon unveils the new design for Prime Air’s delivery drone

Amazon's new delivery drone will have an enhanced range enlarged temperature tolerance, safety-critical characteristics, and new capability to fly in light rain will facilitate customers to prefer drone delivery more often

Amazon announced the launch of MK30, its next-generation delivery drone. Due to coming into service in 2024, this drone will be lighter and tinier than MK27-2, the drone that will be creating deliveries in Lockeford and College Station. The MK30’s enhanced range enlarged temperature tolerance, safety-critical characteristics, and new capability to fly in light rain will facilitate customers to prefer drone delivery more often.

Continual innovation for customers

Amazon has built a fully electric drone that can deliver packages under 5 pounds to customers in less than an hour, from click to delivery. Earlier this year the company announced that customers who live in Lockeford, California, and College Station, Texas, will be amongst the first to receive Prime Air deliveries later in the year.

Amazon on its website states that the company has built something great with Prime Air drone delivery, as it does with all its other innovations – including Prime, Kindle, Alexa, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Prime Video, and much more.

It further states that the team has been working hard at figuring out how to get items to customers quickly, cost-effectively, and most importantly safely in less than an hour.

Reducing noise signature

Reducing the noise signature of its drones is an important engineering challenge that the team is working on. Prime Air’s Flight Science team has designed new custom-made propellers that will reduce the MK30’s perceived noise by another 25%. The company has created a sophisticated and best-in-class sense-and-avoid system that will allow its drones to operate at greater distances while safely and reliably avoiding other aircraft, people, pets, and barriers.

The brand-new drone will go through rigorous evaluation by national aerospace authorities like the Federal Aviation Administration to establish its safety and reliability.

Amazon creates the next generation of delivery

When Amazon started Amazon Prime’s Two-day Delivery program 17 years ago, it was considered revolutionary. Getting packages to people where they wanted them to be delivered.

Since then, the company has developed new technologies and made investments in its logistics network that have helped them get packages to customers in two days, one day, and even on the same day. To sustainably deliver a huge selection of items in under an hour, and eventually within 30 minutes, at scale, drones are the most valuable path to success, Amazon mentioned on its website.

It added that the company is excited about the next chapter in the Prime Air program and expanding this service to more customers in the months and years to come.
