High manufacturing margins

Disruptive Technology
Autono Drone™ is a high-tech Australian technology company.  They design and manufacture heavy payload Autonomous, Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL), Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) cargo drones.

The Vision
Create a Global Aerospace Company.

Forward Orders
Based on enquiries received, we anticipate significant forward orders.

Company Purpose:
To transform the global logistics sector.

Problems:

  1. Risks to pilots and crew for defence forces during re-supply missions.
  2. Risks to pilots and crew for aerial firefighting operations.
  3. For Global logistics companies such as FedEx and DHL, middle and last mile logistics represent more than circa 25% of their cost base.
  4. During 1992-2001, 141 pilots/navigators in the agricultural industry died in aircraft-related events during activities such as crop dusting in the USA alone.
  5. Significant capability/cost of supply/cold chain logistics to remote indigenous communities.
  6. Inability to deliver critical supplies during natural disasters and/or humanitarian relief operations.

Solution:
Autono Drone’s has designed scalable autonomous heavy payload cargo drones. The A200 model is designed to carry up to 200kg (440lb) directly in the hull or in a compact cargo pod for a range of up to 780km (484 miles) and can land/take off from a small footprint using GPS co-ordinates. Our unique scalable design gives Autono Drone the ability to scale and increase payloads from initially 200kg to 500kg, 1,000kg, 2,500kg.

Competitive Advantage’s:
Autono Drone’s technology provides the following key competitive advantages:

  • No pilot or crew risk – Fully Autonomous.
  • Continuity of operations in GPS jammed environments.
  • Small take-off and landing footprint – no runway infrastructure required.
  • Rotax aircraft engine can operate on carbon neutral synthetic fuels.
  • Low manufacturing costs – no composites.
  • Versatile solutions to meet multiple applications.
  • AI Flight control ensures repeatable/error free journey.
  • Scalable manufacturing processes enable rapid increases in output.
  • There is no comparable offering.

Milestones Achieved:
Autono Drone has achieved the following milestones:

  • A$4M+ invested by the Founders.
  • A200 concept 3D software model completed.
  • Design reviews by Rotax and CFS Aero Ltd completed prior to commencing manufacture of A200 prototype.
  • Patent lodged – Patent pending.
  • MOU signed with Advanced Navigation Pty Ltd to supply state of the art navigation capability.
  • A200 Prototype 50%+ complete.

Market Opportunity:

  • White space – unsaturated market.
  • Closest competitor Elroy Air, after completing a tethered hover test, received US$3B in forward orders before having manufacturing capability.
  • Another competitor with a fixed wing drone, has forward orders from DHL for 4,000 units.
  • The civilian Cargo Freight Drone Market estimated at US$0.6B in 2022, projected to reach USD 9.4 billion by 2030, at CAGR of 38.6%.
  • Emerging economies won’t need to spend billions on road, rail, and other infrastructure by using our drones to replace “old world” vehicles.
