What Is Possible With Drones?

We just need to look to other nations.

I recently participated in a webinar on Advanced Air Mobility (AAM). One of the speakers was Olivier Defawe with Village Reach.

Village Reach delivers lifesaving medical supplies, including vaccines, to remote sections of developing nations using drones.

The principles they used to test these delivery systems are directly applicable to our needs here in the United States and other developed countries when disasters strike and conventional means of transporting critical supplies become impossible.

My concern is that we are making incredibly slow progress in achieving measures to be able to use drones during disasters. We will need every possible tool available to us. Drones can save lives!!
