Operation Last-Mile: Critical Drone Delivery Testing Report

Test 4 Results

Test 4 was designed to add tight and dynamic obstacles to the delivery target areas to understand if the pilots and VO’s could successfully navigate over and around the obstacles. Each team delivered to 3 targets (4-1, 4-2 and 4-3) for a total of 9 deliveries. All drops were within the 10-foot target circle. No demerits were scored. It was anticipated that the time on target would increase, especially when a dynamic obstacle (a car) blocked the target.
