Staex and EVA collaborate to build the world's first Web3-operated drone delivery corridor


This ambitious initiative will revolutionize the way drones are deployed and operated, opening up new possibilities for efficient and secure autonomous deliveries.

We are excited to announce a groundbreaking partnership between Staex GmbH and Electric Visionary Aircrafts (EVA) to embark on a pioneering project called NEXA. The collaboration aims to establish the first-ever Web3-operated drone delivery corridor in the world. This ambitious initiative will revolutionize the way drones are deployed and operated, opening up new possibilities for efficient and secure autonomous deliveries.

Staex and EVA will spearhead the development of this revolutionary drone infrastructure. The project officially commenced in May 2023 in Berlin, Germany, and will feature cutting-edge facilities including a transfer station M3 based at Ullsteinhaus (The Drivery) and two Vertipads M1 located within the premises of the commercial center Tempelhofer Hafen.

The project will showcase the advanced capabilities of drones through demonstration flights and autonomous deliveries between the aforementioned stations. Leveraging the Mobile 5G Network, these stations will enable various use cases for drones, particularly emphasizing low-latency efficiency, which is critical for autonomous mobile machines.

Staex, renowned for its innovative software technology solutions, will provide secure and reliable communication for all ground stations through its flagship private P2P mesh network software layer. With the implementation of patented military-grade end-to-end encryption, certificate-based trust, and reliable communication over unreliable underlying networks, Staex ensures the utmost security for ground station operations. Additionally, Staex's device identity management and cutting-edge web3 features will enhance the efficiency and secure IT infrastructure management of the project.

The launch date is scheduled for September 2023 in Berlin, Germany. Stay tuned for further updates as we approach this significant milestone.

Staex is a secure public network for IoT devices that can not run a VPN such as smart meters, IP cameras, and EV chargers. Staex encrypts legacy protocols, reduces mobile data usage, and simplifies building networks with complex topologies through its unique multi-hop architecture. Staex is fully zero-trust meaning that no traffic is allowed unless specified by the device owner which makes it more secure than even some private networks. With this, Staex creates an additional separation layer to provide more security for IoT devices on the Internet, also protecting other Internet services from DDoS attacks that are usually executed on millions of IoT machines.
