World’s first vaccine delivery for Animal Husbandry (livestock) using Drones in Arunachal Pradesh
TechEagle collaborated with the Department of Animal Husbandry (GoI) and Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh to strengthen the Healthcare ecosystem for animals by providing rapid and safe delivery of vaccines in the state.
The project was inaugurated by Shri Tage Taki Ji, Hon’ble Minister of Agriculture, Horticulture, Animal Husbandry, Veterinary, Dairy Development & Fisheries Govt of Arunachal, in presence of local MLAs, Joint Secretary (GoI), Joint Commissioner (GoI), DC, SP, Director (AHV) & host of Departmental Officers and public.
The flight took off from Kangkong and delivered vaccines to Paglam, cruising an aerial distance of 29 km, which was covered by TechEagle’s indigenously developed Drone-Vertiplane X3 in less than 20 minutes.
Apparently, the road distance from Kangkong to Paglam is about 120 km which takes around 4 hours to cover. Vertiplane X3 delivered vaccines 12 times faster than existing ground transportation.
The startup’s state-of-the-art drone delivery technology shall be ensuring consistent and reliable distribution of life-saving drugs, vaccines, and blood samples for animals in hard-to-reach areas of the state.
