CJ Group unveils cargo-carrying drones

Friday, May 15th, 2015

In a move which could pave the way for drones to be used for commercial cargo-carrying operations in South Korea, the CJ Group is working with the government to develop drones that can transport disaster-relief supplies.

The CJ Group’s delivery arm, CJ Korea Express, has established a partnership with South Korea’s Ministry of Public Safety and Security to provide drones that can carry emergency supplies of drugs, food and beverages to disaster sites.

The company will be using the newly-unveiled CJ Sky Door, a mid-sized drone that can carry up to 3kg of cargo.

Equipped with four three-bladed rotors, the CJ Sky Door can fly at up to 60 km per hour for 70 minutes, with a 20 km flying radius.

South Korea’s Ministry of National Defense has already been using drones for surveillance operations, but private companies are not yet permitted to use drones for commercial purposes. However, the CJ Korea Express will look to build on its experience in disaster relief operations in order to launch a commercial delivery service when the law changes.
