Joint Venture Proposal: AR Spruce & Alpha Drones USA

Alpha Drones

ABOUT ALPHA DRONES USA

Alpha Drones USA is a New Jersey corporation based out of Morristown Municipal Airport.

The company is emerging as a domestic and international influencer in the drone industry. Providing the most diverse menu of drone services, Alpha Drones USA is emerging as a trusted drone services provider of choice.

Alpha Drones USA’s diverse fleet of precision industrial unmanned aerial systems allows the company to provide services in Agriculture, Mapping, Real Estate, Sanitization, Surveillance, Softwashing, and Disinfecting services for venues large enough for mass gatherings.

In conjunction with Alpha Aviation, Inc., aircraft rental services, pilot training, drone pilot certification and professional development is provided to the next generation of airline pilots.

Under our exclusivity agreement, starting with a fleet of 30 Drones (15 Cleaning Drones and 15 Disinfecting Drones), with the intent to scale up as demand dictates, will make us the world’s largest operating fleet of industrial precision spray drones!

Kelvin’s thoughts on this: we will make an immediate splash. Perfect for marketing. Perfect for branding. Perfect for new revenue opportunities. Exciting news for existing AR Spruce clients.

Kelvin’s thoughts on strategy:

Each cleaning drone should be assigned to a property and the deadline to complete the task should be seven days (weather permitting, with approvals from the FAA).

Additional opportunities Kelvin is working on that AR Spruce may want to consider under the agreement:

CENTRAL AMERICAN HUB

Kelvin has multiple opportunities in Panama and a team that is prepared to expand Alpha into Panama in the first quarter of 2022.

Once we establish our market share in Panama (which is wide open, no competitors, no US-based FAA restrictions limiting our aggressive plans), we want to expand into Columbia, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua.

MEXICO HUB

Mexico City is the largest city in the Western Hemisphere. So long as we are able to profitably dispatch our growing fleet of drones as “equipment improvements” for existing companies with cleaning contracts, we will be successful immediately.

AFRICA, AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND, INDIA, EUROPE, SOUTH AMERICA.

Simply said, we are pioneering a new way. We have no competition. We are simply looking to come in as subcontractors and introduce better and safer equipment, with well trained drone operators, to existing cleaning companies around the world.

WHAT IS SOFTWASHING?

Softwashing uses biodegradable chemicals with a low-pressure water system to effectively remove mold, algae, pollen, dirt, moss and other stains without damaging surfaces on your home or killing your plants. Unlike powerwashing, which uses a high-pressure system, there’s no concern for damage to your property.

We even have a deionized water pump and a special solution for window cleaning.

WHY ALPHA DRONES USA?

SAFETY

We have all of the certifications, equipment, personnel, training, and professionalism necessary to do the job correctly. No scaffolding or ladders are needed.

LOGISTICS

We remove your hassle, headache, and liability.

EFFECTIVENESS

Softwashing can remove years of built up growth and grime on many surfaces, including brick and concrete.

COST SAVINGS

Reduction in liability for companies
Workers compensation is minimized
Expect about an increase in yield for your business

DRONE FLEET

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

DJI Agras T16/T20

This agricultural drone has spraying and seeding capabilities, allowing the distribution of different types fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides, as well as grass seed and fish feed. This drone can spray up to 25-30 acres per hour!

DJI Agras T20

DJI Matrice 300 RTK

With SmartTrack technology, this drone can identify and follow moving objects and people. With the addition of thermal camera, loudspeaker, and spotlight, this drone is the ultimate tool for surveillance and security.

LDT C1 Cleaning Drone

The C1 Cleaning Drone uses softwashing technology to clean buildings and windows without the damage of a pressure wash system. Save hours of setup with no scaffolding or ladders needed. Piloted from the ground with an attached hose, this allows for safer practices.

Lucid C1 Cleaning Drone

LDT D1 Disinfecting Drone

In repsonse to the COVID pandemic, the D1 Disinfecting Drone is used as a safe way to disinfect large areas. With up to 1 cm accuracy, this drone can sanitize stadiums, arenas, and other public areas 14x faster than backpack sprayers.

FAA Regulations concerning Drones

FAA.gov  offers a thorough breakdown of federal laws concerning drones, drone operators, privileges and limitations affecting drones and drone operators.  To make a long, detailed explanation short, here is the bottom line concerning Commercial Drone Operations:

  • FAA Drone Operator Licensing. A Commercial Drone Operation must have 14 CFR Part 107 licensed Drone Operators. All UAS Crewmembers at Alpha are Part 107 Certificated.
  • The 55-pound Drone Weight Restriction. All Drones are limited to 55 pounds at takeoff as per federal law. To operate drones greater than 55 pounds at takeoff, the Commercial Drone Operation must seek and receive specific exemptions relieving the company of such a restricting law. Alpha has successfully completed this rigorous process and has earned Exemption 44807 specifically for our Agras T16 Drone fleet. The Agras T16 is approved to takeoff at 92.7 pounds exclusively at Alpha Drones USA. Our C1 Cleaning Drone is tethered to a spray hose. As per the FAA, the Drone is restricted to lift 55 pounds of water hose. While the drone is capable of carrying water hose weight greater than 55 pounds, we calculate that the weight of the hose at 55 pounds is approximately 110 feet above ground level. Alpha is working with the FAA on relief from this restriction. Alpha continues to work with drone engineers and FAA safety regulators to offer drones that are capable and legally cleared to clean skyscrapers.
  • Spraying chemicals from Drones. To dispense chemicals or any product from a drone, certification concerning 14 CFR Part 137 is required. Alpha’s Agriculture and “heavy drone fleet disinfecting programs” will benefit greatly from the Part 137 Certification. Alpha will launch Part 137 operations effective September 2021.

About Alpha’s Drone Fleet:

Alpha has a hybrid of owned and leased drones. Leased drones were strategically decided because of the state of the drone industry. The drone industry is just getting started at massive technological advances. At Alpha, we anticipate a newer, more capable technology evolving within a six to twelve month period. Therefore, Alpha has negotiated with drone engineers to stay ahead of cutting edge technology by automatically upgrading existing leased models for improved and newer technologies. While we enjoy owning specific drone models, once you buy a drone, it may be impossible to “trade in”. We therefore, do not want to lose our position as an industry leader in offering the latest and greatest technology.

Alpha’s Strategy Concerning Cleaning Skyscrapers

Alpha Drones USA is set to become the first drone operation to clean a skyscraper in the United States, and possibly the first globally.  Alpha continues to work with drone engineers at establishing improvements and capabilities of drones. The technology currently available allows Alpha to clean a skyscraper with drones, but, FAA regulations limit how high the drones can go to perform such a revolutionary service. While Alpha continues to aggressively work with FAA safety regulators and drone engineers at “pioneering a new way”, Alpha recommends establishing a hybrid of “drone exterior building cleaning” with conventional window washing and exterior building cleaning.

Where the drones aren’t “legal” to clean a building per FAA, we recommend the old school, conventional way. But rest assured, our drone fleet will be cleared by the FAA to clean 100% of skyscrapers, and when that “100% clearance is issued”, the world will change quickly.

Alpha is already pioneering the way.
