The Netherlands has taken-off with Drones
The Medical Drone Service (MDS) consortium consisting of the ANWB MAA and PostNL announced their collaboration today. Along with KPN, we're proud to be their technological partner on this journey to explore how drones can contribute to healthcare in The Netherlands.
Healthcare partners Sanquin (blood bank) and Erasmus MC (hospital & pharmacy) acknowledge the challenges of getting medical goods to patients in time now that roads are getting more congested. In the next three years we will carefully investigate how Avy’s long range wing drone operated by the ANWB MAA can be a solution for medical deliveries as illustrated in the animation below.
The capability of vertically taking-off and landing, and transitioning to forward flight, to cover long distances makes this aircraft unique in its kind. The modular payload bay can be adjusted and is easily exchangeable to transport different medical goods under strict conditions. The aircraft is designed for BVLOS flights in European airspace, resulting in a premium aircraft that is compliant with the new EASA regulations.
