India's Animal Vaccine is the World's First to Be Delivered by Drone

By Rahul Gotadki, 09 December, 2022

The animal vaccine developed by Indian Immunologicals Limited (IIL) is the world's first to be delivered by drone. For this first flight, the governments of the Centre and Arunachal Pradesh collaborated with IIL and a drone service provider.

The first drone flight was from Roing to Paghlam. The program is expected to help access remote, tough terrain more quickly, as well as provide essential vaccines on time to prevent animals from numerous diseases. The vaccines provided by IIL were distributed using drones from Redwing Aerospace. The "Medicines from Sky" project is the brainchild of this Bengaluru-based business. The US Agency for International Development-funded project is presently in its beginning stages.

According to corporate sources, up to 1,000 doses of the Raksha Ovac (FMD) vaccine were flown across a distance of more than 20 miles. Drone delivery of vaccines is anticipated to not only expedite the delivery of vital vaccines for the protection of livestock against various diseases on schedule but also to reach remote, challenging terrains faster.

In collaboration with the Department of Animal Husbandry in Arunachal Pradesh, TechEagle, the state's leading drone delivery start-up, has flown the first vaccine delivery for animal husbandry in the history of the world. The goal was to strengthen the supply chain by facilitating faster, safer deliveries beginning in the Lower Dibang valley.

According to a release from TechEagle, the cutting-edge drone delivery technology will guarantee the regular and dependable transportation of life-saving medications, vaccines, and other products connected to animals in difficult-to-reach areas of the state.
