UAVOS Demonstrated Healthcare Drone Delivery Capability

UAVOS announced that it has successfully demonstrated multiple applications for health-care related drone delivery services.

Deliveries have been conducted using the UVH 170 unmanned helicopter with a 10 kg external payload. The demonstration served as an important starting point to illustrate the feasibility and impact of BVLOS medical drone deliveries. These enhance speed, connectivity, and safety in the delivery of supplies to remote and hard-to-reach areas. UAVOS has also successfully demonstrated the ability to transport temperature-controlled medical supplies tests.

Taking off from the delivery point, a 10 kg payload consisting of medical samples was flown to a drop-off point in a hard-to-reach area. Covering a distance of 35 km, the unmanned helicopter completed the mission within 30 minutes.

The helicopter carried an external load and was fitted with the UAVOS' payload drop system with a sling and a hook. The UAVOS-designed payload drop system allowed a package to be loaded at the point of origin, fly to a destination, hover at a lowered altitude of 20 meters, release the load by setting a payload down carefully on the ground, and return to the point of origin.
