Swoop Aero and UAVAid are collaborating for air logistics services in Sierra Leone, reports a press release. Swoop Aero’s autonomous eVTOL aircraft will be integrated in UAVaid’s mixed-fleet drone offering and complement the long-range fixed-wing HANSARD drones.
Eric Peck, Swoop Aero CEO, commented, “We are excited to have the agility of the Swoop Aero platform support UAVAid’s service offering in the Sierra Leone market, complementing the capabilities of their long-range fixed-wing Hansard drone.”
He continued, “Integration is key to solving complex supply chain challenges. That’s why, in all our operations, we ensure our platform seamlessly integrates to generate real impact, be that with adjacent logistics solutions, existing supply chain systems, processes and technology or the local health system and communities.”
James Ronen, UAVAid co-founder, added, “This partnership brings new and exciting capabilities to our service offering. This may include medical sample collection for disease surveillance or improved diagnostic testing.”
