TechEagle transports vaccine for Arunachal's animal husbandry dept
TechEagle aims to strengthen transporting vaccines & essential medical deliveries not only for humans but also animals
TechEagle, India's leading drone delivery startup, has transported the world's first vaccine delivery for animal husbandry in Arunachal Pradesh in collaboration with the Department of Animal Husbandry to strengthen the supply chain by providing safe, secured and faster delivery starting from Lower Dibang valley.
The state-of-the-art drone delivery technology will ensure consistent and reliable distribution of life-saving drugs, vaccines and other items related to animals in hard-to-reach areas of the state, says a release from TechEagle.
The project was inaugurated by Tage Taki, Minister of Agriculture, Govt of Arunachal Pradesh. "The flight took off from Kangkong and transported the cargo to Paglam, an aerial distance of 29 km, in just 20 minutes. The road distance from Kangkong to Paglam is about 120 km, which takes around 4 hours. TechEagle's indigenously developed Hybrid Drone - Vertiplane X3 - delivered vaccines 12 times faster than ground transportation."
Taki says: "It is a historic event as drone technology has not been used before to deliver life saving drugs and medicines in the veterinary sector. The success of the experimental launch at the field level has paved the way for the further use of this technology in the sectors of agriculture, horticulture etc."
Anshu Abhishek, COO & Co-Founder, TechEagle adds: "Animal husbandry is an important economic sector and rearing of livestock directly influences the socio-economic condition of Arunachal Pradesh. Therefore, it becomes necessary to ensure the good health of the livestock even in far-to-reach areas. We are delighted to have collaborated with the animal husbandry department to empower the farmers and create a robust infrastructure through unprecedented drone delivery systems."
Vikram Singh, Founder & CEO, TechEagle says: "We are glad that governments are adopting indigenously developed drone technology by TechEagle to transform the healthcare & supply chain for humans and animals both. This inspires startups like us to develop the advanced technologies in India for the world."
TechEagle's drones can help the animal husbandry department to set up hubs all across the states in order to strengthen the transportation system of these medical essentials, the release added.
