Draganfly is pleased to announce that the Drone Racing League (the “DRL”), the world’s premier professional drone racing property, will air their Championship event, supported by Draganfly, this Sunday, February 20 at 1 p.m. EST on NBC and Twitter.
Marking the finale of the 2021-22 Drone Racing League Algorand World Championship Season, the DRL Vegas Championship Race Presented by T-Mobile, is the culmination of 14-levels of the most competitive drone racing, where the world’s best drone pilots compete for the coveted World Champion title outside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Draganfly’s first season participating with DRL has provided valuable insight required for the scaling of DRL Labs, the league’s innovation hub set up in collaboration with Draganfly. Through DRL Labs, the partners will research and develop next generation drone technology that will advance the sport of drone racing and other industries undergoing significant transformations through drones, including humanitarian aid and mobility.
Draganfly’s advanced Vital Intelligence technology is also being integrated into DRL’s race circuit. The Company’s Smart Vital Kiosks were utilized at the Championship race. The kiosks can screen, with voluntary consent, temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and oxygen saturation (SpO2) in seconds. The system does not register any personal data of the individual being screened.
The DRL Vegas Championship Race Presented by T-Mobile will air on NBC Sports and Twitter on February 20, 2022 at 1 p.m. EST. For further information, please click here.
