Elsight has confirmed that it has been selected by Spright, the drone division of Air Methods, to provide its Halo connectivity solution as a reliable C2 link solution for a fleet of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that delivers healthcare products and supplies between hospitals, clinics, and laboratories.
Spright is currently executing proof of concept missions at a variety of locations, demonstrating that a drone-based approach to addressing healthcare supply chain and logistics challenges is safe, efficient, and secure.
As part of this agreement, Spright will also become an official Halo reseller in the US. Under the reseller terms, Spright will perform configuration and lifecycle management on Halo at more than 300 US locations.
Yoav Amitai, CEO of Elsight, commented: “The flexibility inherent in the industry-agnostic Halo means the various use cases being fielded by Spright will all be supported. We look forward to seeing Spright expand across the United States and into Europe, building a long-term positive relationship between our two innovative companies.”
Joe Resnick, president of Spright, noted: “Halo leverages four major cellular networks, as well as satellites, to allow for safe and secure BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) drone operations. With the implementation of this solution on our aircraft, Spright is now becoming a safer and more efficient autonomous solution for the pick-up and delivery of healthcare goods. Safety and mission continuity are key for Spright, and for the industry as a whole as well as regulators, which is why we chose Elsight as the best solution to fit those needs.”
