“UAV” Robotic spyplanes get new role as medical couriers

Once used as spyplanes for the military, these re-purposed UAVs (uncrewed aerial vehicles) are now being used to deliver medical supplies to remote, isolated South African villages. They can also transport medical samples back from the same villages to normally out-of-reach laboratories for analysis. It’s nice to know that technology initially developed for military purposes can be put to good use. Let’s just hope that one of these planes doesn’t go crashing in the wild while transporting a highly contagious blood sample. It probably wouldn’t infect anyone, but who knows?
