Dronamics joins Scotland’s national medical drone delivery network
European drone delivery company Dronamics has joined a consortium in Scotland preparing what it says will be the UK’s first nation-wide UAV transport network of medical supplies and lab samples.
Dronamics said it has signed on with The Care and Equity – Healthcare Logistics UAS Scotland (CAELUS) consortium, which has secured nearly $14 million in funding to mount the country’s drone delivery network of medical supplies.
