      Launching XER heavy-duty drones; 4hr flight time with 20kg payload

      At XER we have flown drones for 1000s of hours since 2012 and come to realize shortcomings of the low payload and short flight time of standard drones. This has led us to develop and launch an entirely new breed of drones with up to 20kg payload capability and up to 4 hours flight time, useful for heavy-duty services including inspection, S&R, public safety and more.

This session will discuss and answer the challenges of freeing the societal and business advantages of drones, to realise the immense economic and operational benefits of increased efficiency, increased productivity, and increased safety, underpinned by drone professionalism.
