SKYFChain

The First B2R (Business 2 Robots) Operating Platform for Cargo Robotics Industry

About SKYFChain

SKYFchain aims to create and build unmanned aerial carriers (drones) for commercial operations, and to develop the blockchain-based SKYFchain Operating Platform (OP) for cargo robot operation management. SKYFchain’s drone uses a gasoline powered engine to mitigate the challenges of scalability and increasing drone size. The SKYFchain OP is intended to eventually incorporate automated cargo vessels of all kinds, including drones, ships, and passenger vehicles. SKYFT tokens will be used to facilitate all transactions on the platform (which will, however, be paid for in fiat). Token holders will receive 25% of the transaction fees.

Product

It is stated that a prototype of the SKYFchain drone had a major test flight event for clients in December 2017. The SKYFchain drone can “carry a useful load of 400kg/880lb and can fly up to 350km/220miles” (whether these specifications are theoretical or based on tested results is unknown). The GitHub page is provided with significantly low levels of activity and content. SKYFchain states that a “universal operating platform for the cargo robots does not exist” and as a result, the level of competition is fairly low. Perhaps the most challenging part of the project is the engineering that is involved with creating a fully functional product. However, SKYFchain has made significant developments towards their product from a hardware perspective. The organization possesses a patentented propeller design (https://patents.google.com/patent/WO2017141069A1/en?inventor=arsentyev&oq=arsentyev) and when compare to Mil Mi-8 helicoptors, the SKYFchain claims that SKYF uses 24 times less fuel. A demonstration video of the drone is available on the SKYFchain website. Smart contracts are currently in development and will be available close to the end of the ICO sale.

Use of Blockchain

SKYFT is an ERC20 compliant token and is used for transactions within the SKYFchain. It operates on a private (permissioned) blockchain. SKYFT is an intermediary means of exchange, as transactions on the platform are paid for in fiat, but executed on the platform using SKYFT tokens. SKYFchain uses blockchain with built-in smart contracts to provide a “trusted source of data and reasonable control over unmanned assets for clients, logistics operators, insurance and leasing companies, banks, and authorities worldwide”. It is stated that token holders will receive 25% of commissions from transactions that take place on the SKYFchain platform (client payment, loans to purchase unmanned vehicle, etc). The remaining transaction fees will be distributed to the Community Development Fund (25%) and to blockchain super-node operators (50%). Regarding the consensus protocol, it is stated that initially administrators will be selected to create the governance structure of the platform, so that “in the beginning the network will be centralized, but as new participants join the system it will become more and more decentralized”.

Specifically, what are the largest regulatory obstacles that SKYFchain faces with regard to automated air travel and what steps have been taken (or will be taken) to address these challenges?

Regulations for automated air travelling vary worldwide and are frequently corrected. While the rules are undergoing numerous revisions thousands of companies were granted the permits for autonomous flights. SKYF will start commercial operations on SKYFchain mainly in the remote areas including some parts of Africa, Russia, Armenia, Ecuador, Brazil, Canada and so on. Right now, we do not see regulatory obstacles that can prevent us from commercial activities during the next 2-3 years. In those regions SKYF can fly already under the current regulations.

With the accumulated statistics and operations data next market entries will be easier. We plan to expand to Australia first, and then to other countries with similar regulations.

SKYFchain will serve not only aerial cargo robots (drones) but also ground based (trucks) and sea based (ships).

What is the current state of development for smart contracts on the platform (beyond token creation)? and when will this be verifiable on GitHub?

The smart contract is in the development stage. It will be published close to the ICO main sale end.

How does the fuel efficiency of the aircraft compare to traditional transportation methods in quantitative terms?

One of our clients, an oil and gas company, uses helicopters MI-8 with fuel consumption of 680 kg per hour for the delivery of spare parts to its oil rigs. For the same delivery SKYF needs only 28 kg of fuel per hour. In this application SKYF consumes 24 times less fuel. In 70% of cases MI-8 is substantially underutilized because they transport only 100-200 kg of cargo.

Are the technical specifications outlined in the whitepaper (runtime, payload, etc) based on theoretical calculations or has there been physical tests demonstrating these results?

Technical specifications outlined in the whitepaper are confirmed by computer modelling, live test results of the core components, flight tests of SKYF prototypes and technical specifications of third party components.

It is stated that the purpose of the SKYFchain platform is to "integrate information for all market participants and organize the execution of smart-contracts for transactions" and that all transactions will be paid using fiat (and executed using SKYFT tokens). Could you clarify the advantage of using blockchain technology for this project, other than to generate funds? How would this service compete against some sort of web interface that could easily handle a high volume of transactions (especially considering that the service will initially be centralized)?

Blockchain is a key component in SKYFchain. SKYFchain uses blockchain with built-in smart contracts to provide trusted source of data and reasonable control over the assets for clients, logistics operators, insurance and leasing companies, banks, and authorities from different countries and industries. SKYFchain helps to overcome the incompatibility of rules and standards.

It is stated that as "new participants join the system it will become more and more decentralized". How will these new participants be selected? Initially, administrators are selected based on professional industry participants and then expanded based on an invite system. In the future, will the governance structure of the platform be completely decentralized? If so, how?

SKYFchain decentralization will come from two main sources. First, more manufacturers of unmanned vehicles, operating companies, their customers from different regions will use SKYFchain driving its geographical and business sector decentralization. Second, SKYFchain will rely on the supernodes as parts of its blockchain infrastructure. During ICO sale SKYFchain offers supernode certificates for every 100 000 USD contributed. At the later stage the holders of the supernodes will include large logistics companies, banks, insurance and leasing companies.

The SKYF drone is stated to have "patented aerodynamics". What is the status of this patent and can you give more details regarding the patent?

SKYF drone manufacturer has Russian patent granted and PCT application with priority date 2016-02-17. These documents describe and protect a unique and proprietary SKYF drone design that defines the use of two different sets of propellers – the bigger for lifting and the smaller for steering. This scheme brings a much better utilization of power train compared to a traditional multicopter scheme. More information about the patent and its status is here: https://patents.google.com/patent/WO2017141069A1/en?inventor=arsentyev&oq=arsentyev

It is mentioned that the "SKYF drone is easy to operate and less expensive when compared to other existing solutions". What solutions are you using to compare (are they automated/unmanned, are they from startup organizations, etc) and how exactly is it easier to operate?

SKYF drone clients compare it with the existing solutions in their industries. Oil and gas companies in Siberia, Russia use helicopters to supply on-shore rigs with food, water and spare parts. According to their calculations they can slash cost by 5 to 10 times with SKYF autonomous drones.

In agriculture our clinets use small airplanes for crop dusting. That’s a very dangerous job because the flights are performed at low altitudes. https://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/03/us/for-crop-dusters-a-hidden-danger-in-the-fields.html

SKYF drones can dust the crops during the night time (the best time for dusting) which is almost impossible for traditional aviation.

SKYF drones can fly fully autonomously following an approved mission plan.

What developments have been made regarding the autopilot solution (will SKYFchain use their own proprietary solution)?

SKYF drone has its own proprietary autopilot it gives us another level of protection against reverse engineering. You can see the SKYF autonomous flight here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okjwu8DV5Ng
