ANRA Delivers Medicines from the Skies in India

ANRA Technologies is participating in the ‘Medicine From The Sky’ initiative in India, spearheaded by the Emerging Technologies Wing of the India government Information Technology Electronics and Communications (ITE&C) Department, in partnership with the World Economic Forum (WEF), NITI Aayog, a public policy think tank of the Government of India, and emergency and healthcare management services provider HealthNet Global.

This project integrates drone technology to deliver medicine over long distances to hard-to-reach rural areas with minimal road infrastructure. With support from the Indian Union Minister for Civil Aviation Jyotiraditya Scindia, the Government of Telangana has launched trials to advance healthcare using this innovative technology.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought long-term health inequities and inspired consideration of how to deliver high-quality healthcare to all, even in inaccessible areas. With delivery drones emerging as a potential solution, ANRA has partnered with Marut Drones to form a team that will support trials for Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight operations in Telangana.

Using lessons learned from ANRA’s recently completed BVLOS EOI trials, the Medicine From The Sky consortia will deploy with ANRA’s delivery and airspace management software connected to the drones, providing an entire ecosystem for ensuring the drones will safely and efficiently deliver medicine.

ANRA’s delivery software provides a network that enables drone deliveries by managing orders, inventory, and provisioning products – then safely operates the drone within our UTM network.

ANRA is also building the UK’s first national distribution network using drones to transport essential medicines, blood, organs, and other medical supplies throughout Scotland as part of the CAELUS project, which will help influence some of the demonstrated concepts.
