Leading organizations collaborate in the Helicus Aero Initiative (HAI) eco-system to develop aerial logistics solutions for the health care sector.
Our vision is to enable fast, reliable and affordable medical transport, like biological samples and medicines, between health care centers. Carrying critical cargo by drones, will overcome the limitations of traditional ground transport, including traffic congestion and road accidents. Helicus leverages its partners’ technologies to offer a best of breed integrated solution.
As of 2018 missions are flown in the Droneport test area. Urban UTM compliant missions will be flown between three hospitals after the summer as part of the EC U-space program. These will be followed by 10 urban inter-hospital routes in Antwerp and Hasselt that will be interfaced with the USP/ANSP. Thereafter regular flights will take place at three major Helicus pilot hospital groups in 2020.
As an integrator and operator, Helicus coordinates this initiative that includes hospital groups, air traffic control authorities, traffic management platform suppliers, drone manufacturers, software development companies, telecom operators, universities and service companies offering test infrastructure and insurance solutions.
