“This is a very unique project. We all know what great technologies are capable of, other than using them for the benefit of the citizens of the state, which is very important for the people. The technology was used here for a very good reason. We hope to use this technology in the long term, ”said Chief Minister Konrad K. Sangma.

TechEagle, a Gurugram-based DeepTech drone startup, will offer its services to the government to help it deliver drugs. The company is currently building a drone logistics airline to implement the country’s first hybrid electronic vertical take-off and landing system with a drone to deliver life-saving drugs.

The company said it recently successfully delivered life-saving drugs over 25 kilometers in less than 25 minutes to Maweit. The drone can fly at a speed of 90 km / h. TechEagle founder Vikram Singh Mina said drone-assisted delivery technology ensures consistent, safe and reliable distribution of vital drugs.

“Air routes are the best way to get to the hard-to-reach areas in the rolling hills of the northeast. The technology will solve the massive problems faced by people living in remote areas. We have reduced the delivery time from 4 hours to 25 minutes. E-VTOL drone technology will have a huge impact on improving healthcare in the most remote parts of the world, ”said Mina.

Hybrid e-VTOLs are vertical take-off and landing vehicles that take off vertically like a helicopter and convert to fixed-wing mode for long-distance travel at higher speeds, and when they reach delivery destinations, switch back to helicopter mode for landing. exactly what makes it effective for use in a wide variety of terrain.
