Vladimir Yatsenko, one of the project's developers, provided insights into the ongoing work, mentioning that they are in the final stages of refining the autopilot system and communication module, with the goal of commencing mass production in the coming weeks. The MedEvac robot has undergone testing and has proven its effectiveness, especially in hostile conditions, demonstrating its ability to access challenging and remote areas for evacuating wounded soldiers.

The MedEvac robot is equipped to transport individuals weighing up to 100 kg over a distance of up to 10 km. It features a secure radio channel, high-definition video streaming, and a relay system for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Additionally, it boasts four independent electric motors and can be remotely controlled through the UAS-based "Dovbush" system, enhancing its capabilities for use in search and rescue missions.

Ukraine has witnessed remarkable growth in its drone manufacturing sector over the past year, expanding from just seven companies to a minimum of 80 currently engaged in drone production. Minister Mykhailo Fedorov reported a staggering 100-fold increase in production in 2023 compared to 2022, with further projected growth estimated to be 120 to 140 times higher than 2022 levels.

This expansion encompasses various types of unmanned vehicles, including Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) for maritime applications, Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles (UAVs), and Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs). These drones serve diverse military functions, including surveillance, intelligence gathering, engagement with enemy forces, and now, medical evacuation.
