This latest shipment of Medical Response Drones has been equipped with custom hardware and software updates developed by the Draganfly team.

Draganfly’s Medical Response Drone can carry up to 35 pounds. When equipped with the Company’s temperature-managed Medical Response Payload Box, the drone can transport temperature-sensitive medical supplies, including insulin/medicines, blood, pharmaceuticals, vaccines, water, and wound care kits.

The organization has extensive experience developing shipping systems, supplying thermal shippers, creating shipping protocols, and managing pharmaceuticals, supplies, and emergency asset materials.
