Cases description – Newspaper delivery
The newspaper delivery has been performed to a remote village on the bank of the river Kama to the west of the Ural Mountains. Due to the absence of a bridge, the village is cut off from the nearest city. Thus, the delivery of a small cargo usually takes several hours with a route consisting of several dozen of kilometers by local roads and the necessity to use a ferry to cross the river.
With the unmanned aircraft FIXAR 007 launched from an unprepared site, was possible the delivery in a 5 minutes flight time, autonomously and unloading the cargo at a specified pre-designated location. Sealed containers ensured the secured and safe delivery of the newspapers even considering the existent snow conditions. The same task using the conventional logistic services by road would take a full day.
The FIXAR 007 aircraft once again confirmed its unique versatility and efficiency by successfully delivering the cargo and underlining the capacity and importance of developing an autonomous logistics system in the remote regions of the country.
