Amazon seeks FCC permission to run its mysterious experimental project that needs to be tested. The e-commerce giant has also requested for the permission to test this wireless technology for 5 months in the preparation for research scheduled next year.
The company kept the application pretty vague, mentioning that it involved “prototype equipment and associated software designed to support innovative communications capabilities and functionalities.”
The application for FCC Special Temporary Authority reads:
Amazon seeks FCC experimental authority to evaluate prototype equipment and associated software designed to support innovative communications capabilities and functionalities,
Whereas, in its FCC application, Amazon says:
It proposes initially to operate a limited number of low power, temporary fixed base transmitters and associated mobile units indoors at and near its company facilities in Seattle, Washington. Additional tests would be conducted outdoors at a remote, rural location near its facilities at Kennewick, Washington.
Recently, Amazon started making its drone package deliveries in the United Kingdom, but the Federal Aviation Administration regulations have somehow limited the ability of the tech giant in order to conduct testing in the company’s home country.
Whereas, in its patent application the Amazon has hinted at the ideas that included a “Collective UAV” that will be combining a large group of the droned so as to deliver the heavy items.
