We have long been thinking about the possibility of drone transport. Until the release of the Matrice 300RTK drone launched by the DJI, our idea remained only an idea.

With the appearance of theM300, it has become possible to hand over the supervision and control of the drone while flying it. In addition to the innovation, we could not go without a word, so we began to work out the basics of safe transportation.


The date of widespread use of drone delivery, or in other words, transport by drones, is noticeably approaching, so social and technological needs are increasingly supporting the development of this area. Loricatus Ltd. as a specialist company operating with drones, has set the goal of transporting organs, donors and blood as a solution for the future. The development of the topic requires a wide range of professional competencies. Technical, legal, logistical, and security considerations must also be considered.


Loricatus Ltd.'s transport concept with drones goes against the general concepts. Loricatus prioritizes closed system transportation, integrated into everyday life. The essence of closed system transport is that the departing and receiving parties consist of qualified personnel, as well as the landing places and the route are bound. Closed system delivery can be an easy solution with the current, affordable technologies. Closed transport between sending and receiving points means a need for fixed airspace, which is administratively advantageous for general airspace management in Europe. Supervision of take-off and reception is absolutely essential for safety reasons. The operator is sure to be in contact with the machine, so it makes sense for the operator to secure the shipment to the drone. It is also reasonable for the operator to be able to safely detach the shipment from the drone upon arrival. A common and natural feature of transportation is that the movement of material between vehicles should be monitored. Supervision and the loading in this mode of transport is done by human force, so it will also be the operating staff who will take over the box, take it to the machine and secure it.


During a transport between a laboratory and a hospital, the drone operator picks up the box in the lab, takes it out to the take off site, and starts the machine. The drone is capable of autonomous flight, but the operator can monitor and overwrite it. The supervision and handling of the drone in the air is handed over by the sender to the receiving party, who also takes over the task and responsibility. After receiving in the air, the drone lands on the autonomous flight and the receiving party dismantles the consignment from the drone. The receiving party leaves the landing site of the drone and hands over the box to the appropriate location, staying at the example, in the hospital operating room. The operator returns to the drone, turns off, replaces the battery, or returns the machine to the sender.

It is clear that ancillary transport activities necessarily justify human intervention, so according to the concept, manpower is essential for the supervision of autonomous flight. The present concept is also suitable for the creation of destinations, even more landing sites, as a kind of drone airport.

We have arrived at the dawn of drone transport and would like to greet the rising sun from the front row. This opportunity is just waiting to be put into people’s hands.
