  • Glittering Korean national flag of swarm drones brights up the sky on the Korean liberation day


  •  

    Edited by Hyunjin Choi


    Commemorating the 74th Liberation Day of South Korea on August 15th, 2019, UVify successfully depicted the largest Korean national flag ever in the sky, launching the maximum number of swarm drones, IFO, in the history of Korean companies.

     


     

    150 swarm drones were used to bedeck a 266X177 ft (47K ft2) Korean national flag. This broke the record of the largest Korean national flag set 14 years ago: The massive Korean national flag at the 2002 World Cup stadium spread by Korean supporters (197X131 ft/25K ft2) and one that appeared at the Youngil Bay Festival in Pohang, Korea in 2005 (262X174 ft/ 45K ft2).

     

    Uvify's fleet of quadcopter drones were launched into the sky by one drone pilot.

    The previous gigantic national flags were made of fabric and manually produced over a few weeks by dozens of people. However, the world’s largest flag could be created at a bigger scale anytime anywhere in the sky with IFO swarm drones.

     


     

    IFO, the quadcopter swarm drones used for the glittering national flag is the world’s first commercial swarm drone that a Korean company succeeded in research &development, and production. When it was unveiled in CES 2019, it was honored as the Best Commercial Drone by Drone Rush, the prestigious drone media in the US. Since its release, UVify has signed contracts in over 10 countries in the first half of this year.

     


     

     

    “The number or size of drones used in creating the national flag might not be the most significant factor. However, the hike in the number of drones in operation shows the improvement of Korean drone technology. In fact, more drones allows us to draw a more sophisticated flag,” said the CEO of UVify, Hyun Lim. “On this special liberation day, we would like to share the meaningful moment with all Koreans by making a memorable national flag."

     

    “150 drone units of swarm flight is the first record that Korean companies ever made and we are in the process to verify this execution under the regulatory Sandbox for drones by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, and the Korean Institute of Aviation Safety Technology. We hope that more Korean companies discover various business model,” said Changbong Kang, UAS Safety Division head, Korean Institute of Aviation Safety Technology.
