E-commerce giant Amazon has the design of its new Prime Air Delivery Dronewhich can withstand high temperatures and light rain.



The new ‘MK30The drone will be commissioned in 2024 and is expected to be 25 percent quieter than the current one, the company said in a blog post.

“The purpose and objectives of the new drone are the same as its predecessor’s designs: transport packages weighing up to five pounds while flying hundreds of meters in the air,” it added.

The current hexagonal ‘MK27-2’ drone will be replaced by the new ‘MK30’, which will be lighter and smaller.

While it’s impossible to rule out all risks associated with flying, “we took a proven aviation approach to design safety into our system,” the company said.

The new drone will undergo rigorous evaluation by national aviation authorities such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to prove its safety and reliability.

“We have created an advanced and industry-leading sense-and-avoid system that allows our drones to operate at greater distances while avoiding other aircraft, people, pets and obstacles safely and reliably,” said Amazon.

Earlier this year, the company announced that customers living in Lockeford, California and College Station, Texas, in the US would be the first to receive Prime Air deliveries later this year.
