OVERVIEW


By Drone, We Deliver

Unmanned Systems Operations Group, Inc (USOG) is developing disruptive technology that revolutionizes the drone delivery industry. A minority-owned Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) start-up, the company is on a mission to solve real-world problems and save lives with autonomous technology. USOG is developing drone platforms that are heavy-lift capable and drone agnostic. The patent-pending technology, the 10K Cargo Delivery System (CDS) and the 10K Smart Tether System (STS), can deliver multiple packages to multiple locations in a single flight. This results in lower break-even costs and maximum ROI for users. Strong market demand for our hardware/software technologies and systems engineering. USOG is pre-revenue and currently in sales negotiations with multiple clients. USOG plans on entering into production in conjunction with finalization of sales and capital procurement.



Pharns Genece, Founder/CEO, is a veteran of the United States Air Force, serving in the Medical Corps. Genece’s interest in Uncrewed Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) has spanned many years. Genece is an FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot, S.T.E.M educator, DronePro, T.O.P Certified Pilot, a member of Women And Drones, sits on the CompTia Drone Advisory Board, and a member of the FAA Safety Team (FAAST). In addition, the Honoree of the Women & Drones Spotlight Award recognized at CES 2022.





THE PROBLEM


The ‘One Package’ Limitation of Drone Delivery

There is a growing demand for payload or cargo transport by unmanned vehicles due to safety, cost, and time concerns. The majority of drone logistic platforms  can only carry one payload at a time, which limits scale and delivery options. Integrating heavy payloads greater than 2kg onto drone logistic platforms is not currently cost-effective. As a result, drone manufacturers may integrate payload compartments into their platforms, which can  limit payload weight capacity at high costs. 




THE SOLUTION


Drone Agnostic Technology That Puts Choice Back in The Hands of The User

We have designed the 10K Cargo Delivery System™ (CDS) and the 10K Smart Tether System™ (STS) to be  drone agnostic - capable of operating from any platform. USOG’s unique ‘click and go’ technology enables users to easily switch from a single package to multi-package capability. The delivery system attaches cargo of varying size, weight , and shapes  to an uncrewed  vehicle, and mechanically and electrically interfaces with the uncrewed  vehicle’s computer, power, and accompanying systems. This system can rapidly transport payloads of various sizes and needs (temperature controlled/monitored payload) in complex environments (urban, rural, maritime).





USOG’s unique ‘click and go’ technology enables users to easily switch from a single package to multi-package capability. The delivery system attaches cargo of varying size, weight , and shapes  to an uncrewed  vehicle, and mechanically and electrically interfaces with the UAV’s computer, power, and accompanying systems. This system can rapidly transport payloads of various sizes and needs (temperature controlled/monitored payload) in complex environments (urban, rural, maritime).



Organizations can select a drone based on payload and delivery requirements at a manageable investment. Once the end-user selects a drone and determines their payload requirements, the 10K CDS™ or STS™ seamlessly integrates to create the drone delivery system. As end user requirements change, USOG cargo systems can be refitted to new  drone platforms or payload configurations.






THE MARKET


1 Million Commercial Drones Projected to Be Sold Annually

The global drone delivery service market was valued at $520 million in 2019, and is forecasted to reach $9.51 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 44.2%. In total, $4.443 billion has been invested into the drone market since the first recorded drone industry investment in 2010. We’re unique because our technology converts a standard drone into a ‘cargo carrier.’ Our solution increases Uncrewed Aerial Systems (UAS) efficiency and effectiveness while significantly reducing time, costs, and carbon footprints contributing to the green economy.


By 2027, the commercial drone industry will be selling 1,000,000 drone units per year. With an assumed 10% of the drones used for commercial package delivery annually, we estimate 400,000 total drones will be in use by 2027. Our goal is to capture 30% of the Serviceable Addressable Market (SAM) of annual drone users who would employ the USOG 10K Cargo Delivery System™,with  $1.8 billion in potential hardware sales.


OUR TRACTION


Teaming Up With Commercial UAV Companies

USOG is working with commercial UAV companies globally. We have conducted commercial drone delivery service engagements, including live demos for DroneUp  and Papa John’s Pizza. Our continued engagement in biomedical, e-commerce and food industries have resulted in new patents, with revolutionary end-to-end drone logistics solutions. Commencing July 2022, we forecast engagements with multinational entities demonstrating USOG technologies and advising on their future UAV strategies on an enterprise-scale to include disaster relief and biomedical logistical solutions.



USOG has multiple drone agnostic payload systems in development from concept

through pre-production. We follow all necessary development phases including field demonstrations, compliance design reviews, and Size, Weight, Power, and Cost (SWaP-C) reviews to ensure the best product design efficiency and cost. Production-ready systems are reviewed for U.S. Government regulation compliance.





WHY INVEST


Become Part of History, Leave a Legacy, and Support Next-Gen Technology 

We are looking to scale our capabilities: we believe the gateway to drone usage for commercial purposes will increase by 2023 due to recent FAA regulatory changes, authorizing permitted drones to fly on a regulated basis.

The global drone delivery market is expected to witness substantial growth over the forecast period 2023-2030.  Companies have been testing drone delivery services since 2005 and are expected to launch their services by 2023.


USOG is positioned to service these markets through proprietary hardware and software technology (source).


  • Food Delivery (USOG Food Cargo System™)
  • Retail Goods Delivery (USOG Universal Cargo System™)
  • Postal Delivery (USOG Multi Package Delivery System ™)
  • Medical Aids Delivery (USOG Biomedical Cargo System ™)

SOLUTION - USOG’s proprietary patents positions our technology squarely in these sectors, and creates a high barrier of entry for competitors. USOG’s ability to load and deliver multiple packages (autonomously or manually), deliver to separate locations, and safely land and drop cargo onto our Launch, Landing and Recovery System ™(LLRS), provides the industry with a ‘turnkey’ adaptable logistics solution. Our Smart Tether System™ with the ability to winch up to 20lbs of cargo from a height of 300ft/90m AGL, has the unique capabilities of bidirectional communication along our winch line and the ability to lower/retrieve sensors into underwater environments. There are no known Smart Tether Systems™ in the market to date either through our research or advertised to the public (e.g. websites, industry media, trade conferences, etc.). Therefore, since USOG is first to market with our STS's capabilities, we by definition, have 'market leading technology that is revolutionizing the drone industry (source). 


ADOPTION -

The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a positive effect on the Drone Industry.  

Commercial drones have already made gains during the pandemic – thanks to medical applications of commercial drones amongst many other automated solutions providing 

(mapping, surveying, broadcasting etc.) drone companies the ability to deliver and scale their solutions quicker than previously expected. The demand to deliver goods faster has boosted the growth in demand for drone logistics. This has positively

affected the market on a global scale. USOG’s end-to-end drone delivery solution will 

have the capability to service numerous sectors of the drone delivery market (food, retail, postal, and medical). 


The drone delivery business exploding is projected to continue growing in 2023 and beyond, and the company with a safe, secure, and cost-effective means to deliver packages will have a great opportunity to take advantage of this regulatory projected expansion. USOG is the company squarely positioned to participate in the projected growth of this emerging market and expanding business environment (source, source).

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

3 months ago

The Fourth of July—also known as Independence Day or July 4th—has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941. The tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th Century and the American Revolution. Today, we celebrate this holiday in various fashions, from family cookouts to epic road trips and adventures. But, I don't think our forefathers could ever imagine that a drone would fly the US Flag over a Baseball game in the 21st Century. What's more American than the US Flag and Baseball.?  That's right, you guessed it... American Innovation!

We're proud to say that USOG is an American company that upholds the tradition of American Innovation. As a Service Disabled Veteran-owned company, we salute all who defend our freedoms and those who drive our country forward. In that tradition, please help USOG continue innovating by joining our campaign and ushering in the future of Drone Delivery. HAPPY 4th of JULY !!!

Memorial Day

4 months ago

Memorial Day, for most, is a day in which people enjoy family cookouts, the long-awaited three-day weekend, camping adventures, movie outings, boating trips, or favorite outdoor activities. All while forgetting at times that these freedoms come at a cost. 

For others, it's the sad moments of remembering loved ones who served and made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Yet, those heroic sacrifices allow the rest of us to enjoy our freedoms. 

To those who have lost, I encourage you to envoke the best memories of your loved ones because they exemplified the best of us. To all others, take a moment and reflect on the countless unknown heroes who gave all for your freedom.

Two quotes put into words my feelings and gratitude on this Memorial Day:

"Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it." - Unknown

"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God such men lived." - George S. Patton


In Remembrance,
