Press release date: May 2, 2017
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., May 2, 2017 - Cheetah Air, a division of Cheetah Software Systems, has successfully developed and tested its fully autonomous UAV platform. What separates the Cheetah Air platform from all others is that our autonomous drone solution is now integrated with the core Cheetah Logistics Operations Optimization Platform, Cheetah LOOP, which plans, dynamically manages, adapts and optimizes fleets and drivers, resulting in companies requiring fewer vehicles, driving less miles, and making more on-time deliveries.
Cheetah's LOOP, and our experts, address the logistics needs of healthcare, retail, and carriers that operate courier, less than truckload, truck load, and private fleets. LOOP is used extensively by FedEx SameDay City, Cardinal Health, and Macy's to deliver products and packages to consumers every day.
Cheetah will showcase Cheetah Air's fully autonomous UAV platform enabling drone delivery and pickup capabilities at XPONENTIAL 2017. As an exhibitor, Cheetah will share discoveries and future vision. This will include insight into the innovative logistics technology that Cheetah is currently executing at a level of sophistication in mainstream logistics that no other company can perform today. Held May 8 to 11 in Dallas, it is the largest tradeshow for unmanned systems and robotics bringing together over 7,000 commercial and defense buyers from across the entire unmanned ecosystem.
Meet the Cheetah Team at Booth 1143 and see how Cheetah LOOP optimizes operational performance continuously in real time by automating routing, dispatch and customer service!
"Unlike other events that cater to one audience or one domain, XPONENTIAL brings it all together in one efficient location," said Bobby Darroll, CEO of Cheetah Air. "XPONENTIAL 2017 is the perfect opportunity for us to unveil the latest capabilities of our core system using the drone as the mechanism for executing complex adaptation to continuously changing operation conditions."
"AUVSI brings together the global unmanned systems and robotics community at XPONENTIAL to see and interact with the latest technology that will soon be part of our everyday lives," said Bryan Wynne, president and CEO of AUVSI. "This year, we expect a record number of end users in attendance, all eager to discover new business partners to help them enter the market, including representatives from the telecommunications, energy, agriculture and insurance industries."

About Cheetah Software Systems - Logistics Technology
Cheetah, with a passion for serving the consumer, is the premier provider of a dynamic, adaptive Logistics Operations Optimization Platform (LOOP) for retailers and carrier-for-hire companies in the logistics space. Cheetah's LOOP is the only operations solution that not only plans delivery routes, but also constantly updates the prediction of extremely accurate arrival times as it adapts, live and automatically, to changing operational conditions. These conditions include traffic, weather, accidents, customer cancellations, new stop-insertions, and driver exceptions. Deploying Cheetah's proprietary artificial intelligence algorithms, the Cheetah optimization engines receive and utilize real-time events, such as GPS fixes, stop locations, etc. Tracking all drivers in LOOP's operational network allows its optimization engines to efficiently route the driver through every step of the process, saving both time and money. Customers, Store Managers and Corporate Management have a real time, live, view of their entire network and its delivery performance for all their customers, allowing companies to be operationally proactive rather than reactive.
Sophisticated routing algorithms, system flexibility, a plethora of data sources and live, adaptive automation makes Cheetah the most advanced and efficient practical logistics platform in the market today. LOOP delivers in the shortest time possible to customers for the lowest operating cost. For more information visit: www.cheetah.com.
