Plymouth, Massachusetts–(Newsfile Corp. – May 14, 2020) – Plymouth Rock Technologies Inc. (CSE: PRT) (OTCQB: PLRTF) (FSE: 4XA) (WKN# A2N8RH) (“Plymouth Rock“, “PRT“, or the “Company“) a leader in the development of cutting edge threat detection technologies, announced today an update to its drone program.
Plymouth Rock Technologies’ (PRT) X1 Platform will be used in a series of airborne tests for the UK National Health Service (NHS) for emergency apparatus delivery. This will involve several test scenarios, that if successful will lead to on-scene delivery of defibrillators and other critical trauma assistance technologies.
The scope of the work involves the University of Warwick, The East Midland NHS trust and the Welsh Ambulance NHS Trust and will commence in May 2020.
“At this time of global medical resources being stretched beyond measure, we are honored to assist in this matter,” stated Dana Wheeler, CEO. “We believe that the multi-role design of the X1 that was purposely designed to can carry up to 20lb of payload in all weather conditions will redefine how UAV technologies are utilized,” concluded Wheeler.
“Our engineers and PFCO pilots are preparing the X1 for this purpose,” stated Carl Cagliarini, Chief Strategy Officer. “We will be working with two other strategic UK contractors who will be the liaison leads on this program. Our platform being used for this capability is both exciting and beneficial to many struggling communities in the UK. We believe that the broad gamut of life-saving payloads from anaphylaxis shot, bloods, vaccine or electronic resuscitation instruments, could save life both on main street and also potentially for greater use for armed forces in the battlefield,” concluded Cagliarini.
