UPS Launches New Medical Delivery Drone Project Flight Forward

Medicines supply drones will fly prescriptions to the homes of CVS customers in a Florida retirement neighborhood as a new project by UPS Flight Forward kicks off.

UPS Launches New Medical Delivery Drone Project Flight Forward

This week, the service announced the project with the drug-store chain to ship medicines across The Villages, a Central Florida community with over 135,000 residents.

Beginning in early May, the enterprise will include flights of less than a half-mile from the pharmacy but might develop to two more stores within the area.

A ground vehicle will carry out the delivery to the customer’s door. The delivery service is the second deployed by the two companies.

In 2019, UPS completed the first-ever American commercial drone supply of a prescription to a customer’s house.

Workers launched an M2 medical delivery drone built by Matternet from a CVS retailer in Cary, N.C. and delivered the medication by lowering the parcel down to the shopper utilizing a cable and winch. The successful flight was followed by a second shipment to a homebound customer at a nearby retirement village.

UPS declared the launch of Flight Forward in 2019 after filing for FAA authorization. The FAA granted Part 135 certification in September, paving the way for the medical supply drones to fly into the consumer market.

UPS later collaborated with Matternet to ferry medical samples through drone at WakeMed hospital in Raleigh, N.C.

    4 days ago I received a phone call from CheckPoint antivirus saying that my computer appeared to be infected with “W32/Purgatory.U”. I have not previously been subject to this kind of virus or had Checkpoint on my computer and was very surprised. So far my computer has not lost any data or programs.
    I have already scaned my system with AVG antivirus and it said it found this virus. The AVG scans did not take long.
    If anyone could please look at this and give me some assistance
