Uttarakhand has opened its doors to drones in healthcare, becoming the first state in the country to do so. 

Redcliffe Labs, a unit of Redcliffe Lifetech in the U.S., has come up with its first commercial drone flight in the country’s healthcare sector. The company has recently opened its commercial drone corridor between Uttarkashi and Dehradun.

Dheeraj Jain, Founder, Redcliffe Labs informed that Uttarkashi to Dehradun by road is 144 km, 6-8 hours by road and 12 hours during a landslide. “But using drone technology this distance was covered in 88 minutes with one battery swap in between,” he said.

The project was a part of Redcliffe and Skye Air tie-up and in the past three months they have done 40 successful trials in North India.

Redcliffe Lab, delivered 5 kilograms payload in temperature-controlled boxes from Gyansu, Uttarkashi to Vivek Vihar, Dehradun, which is 60 kilometres aerial distance.

The company said it “will be operating two flights daily for both routine and specialized tests sample collection from June 10, 2022.

The diagnostic service provider aims to reach at least 500 million Indians by 2027. Of the various ways to achieve this target, Jain informed that the company “plans to leverage drone technology to collect Dx samples.”

The business sectors in India, though skeptical in the beginning, have embraced drones to increase work efficiency and reduce operational cost. A study conducted by BIS Research predicted that the market for commercial drones superseded the military market by 2021, cumulatively hitting approximately $900 million.
