Team Roadrunner consisted of the FAA-designated Nevada UAS Test Site (Nevada Institute for Autonomous Systems), Volans-i UAS, Latitude UAS, AUV Flight Services, and the ground and mobile visual observer support from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) Worldwide campuses. "This was the most challenging, logistically-intensive, and longest package delivery demonstration recorded to date using cellular technology in the NAS, and allowed us the opportunity to demonstrate innovative capability – a demonstration necessity for the UAS industry," said Dr. Chris Walach, Director of the FAA-designated Nevada UAS Test Site and Adjunct Assistant Professor, College of Aeronautics at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide. "Assembling a resilient team, being at the right place at the right time, with the right innovative technology, and entrepreneurial perspective is what allowed us to accomplish this mission." Walach continued, "Drone package delivery in an urban and remote environment is the wave of the future, and Nevada is leading and helping to grow this major commercial endeavor. These package delivery milestones prove that new UAS technology enables the safe integration of UAS into the NAS for long-distance and urban package deliveries." Nevada previously conducted historic package delivery BLOS demonstrations in Hawthorne, Nevada at over 39 miles as well as the first publicly-recorded package delivery to a Reno, Nevada homeowner. For this mission, to embed an additional layer of safety into this operation, visual observers were placed along the route and a ground mobile visual observer team was deployed in remote areas. "Team Roadrunner was organized and very professional to work with.  It is very exciting to be part of something truly ground breaking.  Integration of students and alumni on similar projects with NIAS in the future extends our outreach to the industry," said Dr. Scott Burgess, Associate Professor, College of Aeronautics at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide. "Aviation has evolved much since the days of the Wright Brothers and I truly believe that unmanned systems are going to revolutionize the aviation industry and beyond; I am proud that Embry-Riddle faculty, students, and fellow Alumni are actively playing a part in this incredible journey," said Kandi Windham, Campus Director, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide, Houston, Texas. "This was an extremely complicated mission.  Making sure that the UAS met all the performance characteristics was only one piece.  Great emphasis was placed on flight safety, airworthiness, communication, command and control as well as air and ground coordination, and VO logistics.  The Volans-i, Latitude, AUV Flight Services, and the NIAS team worked extremely well together.  Given the complexity and the ultimate success of the mission, it is clear to me that we couldn't have picked a better team," said Hannan Parvizian, Volans-i Founder. "Creating a safe and thriving drone industry is an incredible challenge, especially when you couple that with drone package delivery.  The loss of communications during a long flight is a real concern, but because of this mission, cellular technology can be relied upon to ensure that communication with a drone is not lost over a long-distance delivery.  The record-breaking success of Team Roadrunner's aerial package delivery mission proves that diligent testing in complex conditions will lead to drone delivery becoming reality," said Steve Hill, Executive Director of the Nevada Governor's Office of Economic Development. The Nevada UAS Test Site is one of seven Federal Aviation Administration-designated UAS Test Sites.

The research was conducted by four authors — Darryl Jenkins, Bijan Vasigh, Clint Oster, and Tulinda Larsen — and states that the commercial UAS: Summary — Even if only 1% to 2% of the packages sold online are delivered by UAS, the operations will dwarf the volume of flights handled by the existing Air Traffic Management system (ATM). We forecast 100 million packages per day will eventually be delivered via UAS, 10 times today's aircraft operations. The economics of last-mile delivery are so compelling that existing companies will have no choice but to adopt this technology to survive and that new markets will be opened. Pizzas, milk, clothing, and just about any item that consumers want quickly will be delivered via UAS. Where we are today - almost 1 million small UAS were registered in the United States in the first 18 months of the FAA registration requirement; roughly 100,000 are registered for commercial use, according the FAA - four times the current fleet of manned aircraft, including commercial and general aviation. The FAA forecasts that the commercial UAS fleet will grow to more than 500,000 by 2021. Skylark Drone Research (SDR), a DBA of Skylark Services, was founded in 2016 by Dr. Larsen and is dedicated to conducting and compiling economic research related to Commercial Drones, also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). SDR is currently analyzing options for integration of drones into air traffic management and commercial air space, assisting with a major conference on Autonomous Vehicles known as INTRASECT, and investigating the use of drones to improve operations for precision agriculture and snowsport/mountain bike resorts.

Miami drone services startup Airborne Response is continuing to build the World’s Largest Air Force™ with the launch of a new program that is slated to become the largest remote pilot network for emergency response operations on the planet. The Airborne Incident Response Team (AIRT) will recruit, train, certify, and deploy drone pilots from around the globe to assist in search and rescue missions and response operations for a wide range of incidents. AIRT pilots will complete a prescribed training regimen administered via Airborne Response consisting of instructional material from the FAA, FEMA, and other world-wide subject matter experts. As AIRT members complete designated training courses and gain additional knowledge and skills, they will be continuously rated on their increasing levels of proficiency as an AIRT Remote SAR Pilot. “Unmanned aircraft systems represent a new evolution in aviation operations for emergency response,” says Christopher Todd, president of Airborne Response. “AIRT will serve as a force-multiplier capable of augmenting first responders and public safety agencies around the world with drone technology when needed.” While all FAA-certified remote pilots are encouraged to join AIRT, hobbyist drone operators are also welcome to participate in the AIRT program and commence formal training as an AIRT Remote SAR Pilot. Airborne Response stresses that FAA – or other appropriate governing agency regulations based upon geographic location – will always be followed for any operational area where AIRT is responding. “We will respect and closely follow FAA Part 107 regulations governing commercial use of UAS for all Airborne Response associated flight operations,” says Todd. Nevertheless, we welcome the opportunity to engage AMA and hobbyist drone pilots who want to gain knowledge and proficiency in emergency response aviation operations. We believe the AIRT program will help bridge the current gap between hobbyist and commercial remote pilots as they pursue common goals to serve the greater good of their community.” There is no cost to join the AIRT program.
