Regarding the Intellectual Property Strategy

What is the Sky Infrastructure concept that we advocate?

In recent years, due to a labor shortage and aging infrastructure, there is an increasing need for technology such as drones to be used in industry. It is reported that by 2024, the Japanese domestic drone market will be worth 250 billion yen*, and the international drone market will be over 18 trillion yen. (*Source:Impress Research institute Drone Business Survey Report 2018)
As drone solutions gain attention and become more common, dangers such as drone accidents and terrorist attacks become issues facing social implementation.
At A.L.I., to solve these issues proactively with technology, and to see drones be implemented into society as safely and efficiently as possible, we are making great strides towards the concept of Sky Infrastructure.
Each of the patents in this patent group is engineered toward the concept of Sky Infrastructure, and designed to work in perfect tandem.
