Trust Automation supports medical UAVs
The company contributed to the development of the small footprint capture/recovery system for the UAS that allows it to fly to locations without prepared runway facilities.
The Zipline UAS has been developed to deliver critical and lifesaving medical supplies to inaccessible and remote areas. Zipline International recently began official national scale and routine deliveries of blood to health facilities in Rwanda.
Ty Safreno, CEO and CTO of Trust Automation, said: 'In the technological world we live in today it is unacceptable to know that lives are lost because communities have zero access to critical medical supplies. Being part of a project that saves thousands of lives on a global scale is an honour and driving inspiration for us.'
