IoT technology powers medical delivery drone

KORE demonstrated innovative support for Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, enabling Australian drone-driven logistics company Swoop Aero to deliver COVID-19 vaccine to remote areas. The use of medical drone logistics in the existing health supply chain can better obtain medical products while reducing human interaction.

Swoop Aero's air logistics solutions are able to reliably transport medical goods, including early pathological samples, diagnostic kits, antiretroviral drugs and vitamins, in Malawi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique and Australia, the United Kingdom and the Pacific.

Eric Peck, CEO of Swoop Aero, said: “The ability to communicate reliably anywhere in the world and at any time enables Swoop Aero to deploy a reliable, sustainable and scalable drone logistics network that connects the last mile and helps Anyone anywhere provides fair health services.” KORE also provides satellite and cellular redundancy and failover systems to ensure that the drone fleet operates consistently.

Romil Bahl, President and CEO of KORE, said: "I use the IoT connections and solutions we provide every day so that people in the most remote areas of the world will not be forgotten or ignored. I am very grateful for this." "Medical Nursing staff rely heavily on Swoop Aero’s ability to continue to transport the medicines doctors and nurses need for citizens living in remote areas. Failure is not an option."

FDD50 fixed-wing VTOL medical delivery drone
