3 Things You Missed at the AWS Summit


Last week, I gave a keynote address at the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Summit in Sydney, an event bringing together more than 25,000 people from across Australia and New Zealand.

I presented alongside industry leaders to share how Swoop Aero leverages the AWS cloud-based infrastructure to generate value and impact.

Here are 3 things you didn’t know about our platform and how we use AWS cloud-based infrastructure.

1 – We pilot aircraft across the world from our Remote Operations Centre (ROC) in Melbourne


2 – Our digital twins allow us to scale and operate a global fleet 

With the digital twin and a seamless flow of data, our integrated application ecosystem enables us to deliver safe drone logistics at scale.

3 – Our visual landing capability

This capability is enabled by computer vision technology based on our custom model, which has been trained in the cloud. we use Amazon Sagemaker Groundtruth and Amazon Mechanical Turk for data labelling and crowdsourcing, and Amazon Augmented AI to manage the workflow for human review. We leverage Amazon SageMaker for model training, and Amazon SageMaker Neo to optimise and convert that model for our target device.


At Swoop Aero, we have built more than just a drone. 

We have built a complete technology-enabled logistics service, encompassing hardware, software and technical expertise to make access to the skies seamless.

Through our close partnership with  AWS, Swoop Aero has gone from strength to strength in the global drone logistics industry and will continue to innovate integrated drone logistics and aviation to serve 1 billion people by 2030.
