Iran Space Research Center has developed a drone that can be used for postal delivery. The center unveiled the drone during the 18th Research, Technology Achievements and Techmart Exhibition held last week in Tehran, Mehr News Agency reported. According to the ISRC, the aerial vehicle can carry a payload of up to five kilograms and travel at a speed of 50 kilometers per hour at an altitude of 600 meters. While technologically interesting, drone delivery services would not be possible in the near future at least in Tehran because flying drones were banned in the city in February following two instances when two unmanned aerial vehicles flew over restricted airspace in downtown Tehran and were brought down by anti-aircraft fire.
