VTOL Cargo UAVs: Promise Fulfilled
11:30 AM - 12:45 PM
Location: Forum Stage 2 - GAMA
Presenter: Ed De Reyes
Throughout history, communities sprung up far from airports, roads or even railroads or sea ports...and even too far for helicopters. These communities still need access to food, clothing and even medicine - but there have no reliable alternatives for providing cargo to these locations. Helicopters have been tried, but are limited in payload and range. Now VTOL cargo UAVs have the capability of flying faster, farther, and greater payloads and in weather that is unsafe for manned flight.
