Pierce Aerospace and Redwing Labs have entered into a partnership in a move to advance global medical deliveries by drone.
The companies have said that they hope by teaming up the strengths of Pierce Aerospace’s Remote Identification expertise and technologies and Redwing Labs’ long-distance drone delivery aircraft and operations can be combines.
Aaron Pierce, CEO, commented: ““I am happy to see Redwing Labs and Pierce Aerospace combining efforts to advance medical drone delivery around the world. As a former volunteer EMT, I have been a proponent of the potential of drones in the medical field and I see amazingly capable talent in Redwing Labs.”
He added: “Applying Remote ID to these flights expands the scope of airborne medical operations even further, helping patients obtain greater and faster access to healthcare when it is needed most.”
The team is developing a drone sandbox for the UNAIDS Innovations Exchange where Redwing Labs facilitates the delivery of medical goods within a 50km radius with long-range drones while Pierce Aerospace provides Remote ID to the aircraft and additional partners operating within the sandbox.
Redwing Labs has already demonstrated some of these components in Papua New Guinea and now is building capacity towards increasing adoption of drone deliveries across the globe.
Anshul Sharma, co-founder of Redwing Labs, said: “Pierce Aerospace’s Remote ID technology is essential to enable safe and scalable BVLOS operations for social and commercial purposes. Redwing’s experience with drone delivery combined with Pierce Aerospace’s Remote ID technology is an important milestone for repetitive commercial deliveries. We’re proud to partner up with them to serve our customers by providing quality healthcare services.”
