Two drone delivery trials are set to take place at the National University of Singapore, via Todayonline

Parcel deliveries by drones — also known as unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) — are set to take off on the National University of Singapore (NUS) campus, while ships anchored at bay in Singapore could receive goods from a coastal parcel station using similar means.

These are two UAS trials made possible by a Memorandum of Understanding signed on Wednesday (Feb 17) on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow between Airbus Helicopters and the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS).

The NUS trial will see the university join hands with Airbus Helicopters to develop a trial network of parcel stations within its campus. Suppliers across Singapore will also be able to use the network to deliver their goods via UAS to customers across the NUS campus.

Should the NUS trial prove successful, the second trial — delivery of goods such as urgent medicine, oil samples and spare electronic parts from a parcel station located on the Singapore coast to ships anchored at bay — will be carried out.
