 Amazons drone delivery project is progressing slowly and dozens of employees have been laid off


Although it has been seven years since the launch of Amazons UAV project, it will take several years to deliver the UAV, and progress is expected to be slow early next year, according to people familiar with the matter.

We are restructuring a team within the primeair team to best meet the needs of our customers and business, Amazon spokesman Kristen Kish said in a statement Kish also said Amazon is looking for jobs for affected employees.

According to media reports, Amazon has reached a temporary agreement with Spains aernova aerospace and Austrias fac aerospace to produce parts for Amazons UAVs. The two companies specialize in aircraft parts, with customers including Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier. Amazon has sent solicitation proposals to a number of Companies in the past year, which means other deals with third parties are likely to be concluded soon, according to people familiar with the matter. Amazon has been hoping to use drones on a large scale to deliver goods to millions of customers, delivering packages weighing up to 5 pounds (about 2.27 kg) in 30 minutes. Amazon has already obtained approval from the U.S. government to start commercial delivery. Source: Science and technology innovation board daily editor: Zhong Qiming_ NF5619
