SINGAPORE (AFP) – Drones could be used across hi-tech Singapore to deliver life-saving medical supplies, including blood samples, to a patient during an emergency or to respond to a security breach under a new system in development. Future Flight Consortium, a 13-member group, said it had been chosen by the country’s civil aviation authority and transport ministry to develop the drone programme. The drones would be operated remotely by pilots at an operations centre and be able to travel relatively long distances across the city-state.
