Drone Long-Range Delivery

In vast, remote regions with limited infrastructure, the delivery of medical supplies can be logistically challenging. Traditional methods, relying on poor road networks or unreliable overland transport, often run up against delays and limitations.

Needs of Drones Operators for Route Planning

When creating new Operation Zones in agreement with local authorities, UAV Operation Managers face several challenges in defining the most appropriate routes to reach all the medical centers. Some operations can involve parachuting medications up to 100 kilometers away from the home base and need careful planning. The following considerations are crucial during the planning phase:

Minimum Ground Risks: Such as populations, antennas, and power lines.

house icon

Secure RTH (Return To Home): In case of communication loss.

compliance icon

Regulation Compliant: Adhering to local and national regulations.
