Medical Drone Flight in the Netherlands – Presented by Patrique Zaman, Avy, at Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference, which will take place on November 28, 2018, at RAI Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Learn how we developed a specialized medical cargo wing drone and how we plan to operate this for scheduled and urgent flights in between hospitals in the Netherlands. This presentation will give you an insight in the state-of-the-art technology that is being used, how we work with the new EU regulation and how we modified the aircraft to keep the medical cargo cooled.
What drives you?
Working together to develop radical innovative technology for a better world. How cool is to build a new type of aircraft, but let’s use it for the good!
What are the three things you would take with you on a deserted Island?
Butter (makes everything better), Rum (if I gotta be a stranded pirate, I’d better drink proper rum) and a towel, because, you should always bring a towel.
What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
Scheduled and urgent drone flights will fly very frequently in the near future. They will bring the world closer and protect and save people in need.
What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
Less fear of drones, more awareness and responsibility of using them, a closer connection and less fossil-fuel driven traffic
What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
Regulation and societal adoption, they both take a little while to evolve with the technology.
What do you hope people to learn from your presentation?
I hope the audience will go home with a cool story to tell their kids about some crazy new type of wingdrone they have seen and how these in the future might save their lives.
What drives us is the positive impact of our state-of-the-art technology: we are here to save lives, help people, conserve wildlife and protect nature.
About Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference
This 7th edition of the conference will take place on November 28, 2018, at RAI Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Scope: The Conference aims to bring together manufacturers, operators, knowledge institutes, consultants and government organizations active in the upcoming field of unmanned cargo aircraft.
Unmanned Cargo Aircraft (UCA) are a relatively new phenomenon; the first UCA service is to be started in Kenya this year. UCA offer the potential to transport loads of 1 to 10 tons or more over both short and long distances, on routes that are unfeasible or uneconomical for other modes of transport.
During the conference, internationally renowned speakers will introduce UCA development projects and potential applications.
Topics to be covered are:
UCA business models: how to earn money with UCA?
UCA configurations: what could – and should – UCA look like?
Regulation: where are UCA allowed to fly, and under which conditions?
Societal benefits: what can UCA contribute to economic and social development?
Industrial participation: how can UCA contribute to innovation and what opportunities do they generate for new enterprises?
Target group: Shippers | Carriers | Harbour authorities | Research institutions | Military | Ship manufacturers | System Integrators | ICT suppliers | Logistic service suppliers | Entrepreneurs | Investors | Airports | Governmental Institutions | Cargo Companies | Fulfilment companies | Retailers | E-tailers | Consultants
It is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and network with this pioneering community of unmanned cargo researchers, engineers, business developers and end-users.
