We have identified a range of different missions for Sky Hopper
A water pump breaks, a propeller bearing shatters, an incubator heater fails, a textile loom control circuit burns out; in small isolated communities these are serious events. It can take days to obtain replacements. Sky Hopper can deliver in hours.
Replenishment cycle cargo
Some logistics demand repeating drop-off delivery missions ; a pipeline or powerline project, a response to famine or floods, re-supply of an exploration or scientific mission. Working from a safe more easily supplied base, Sky Hopper can provide rapid re-supply along identified mission lines.
Mesh networks for isolated communities
Sky Hopper can be used to develop a mesh network of delivery routes to and from, and within, remote and separated communities in rural areas. Where roads are poor and terrain is difficult an unmanned aerial delivery capability can offer a highly capable supply network.
Environmental monitoring and surveying
Understanding our fauna and flora landscape, and our humanscape, is a major need across the developing world. Animal conservation, crop assessment, scattered settlement surveys are all examples of tasks that Sky Hopper can carry out at economic cost.
