Thousands of patients die every year waiting for an organ transplant due to the severe shortage of donors, and the time-sensitive supply of compatible and usable organs. Supply is simply not meeting the critical level of demand.
United Therapeutics has a vision to change the fate and lives of these patients. Through innovative techniques in lung manufacturing, including pig-to-human xenotransplantation and advanced 3D bio-printing, and enabled by an integrated delivery network, Unither Bioelectronics has set itself on a course to be both a game-changer and lifesaver for those in need.
To design and fully implement a highly efficient and environmentally friendly transportation system, including a fleet of autonomous aircrafts capable of quickly delivering an unlimited supply of manufactured transplantable organs with a one-day lifespan, from a small number of manufactured organs facilities to transplant centers.
A new generation of Electrically-Powered, Optionally-Piloted, Powered-Lift Aircraft, that has the capability to take-off and land vertically at hospitals.
Unither Bioelectronics, a wholly owned subsidiary of United Therapeutics Corporation, is leading a significant effort for the development of its autonomous organ delivery airborne system tapping into the Quebec aerospace expertise and ecosystem, and many other international partners.
Unither Bioelectronics has brought together an impressive multi-disciplinary team of industrial experts, with a collective vision to bring this innovative project through to fruition. Composed of several pioneers in electric aviation, autonomy experts and AI researchers, the company is addressing, with utmost rigor, all critical aspects of key R&D areas and critical enablers for the future scaling of organs on-demand, that will allow safe operations of the entire organ delivery drone aircraft fleet.
Underlying this effort is a creative, forward-thinking process involving a team of experts committed and capable of achieving the technology breakthroughs that a project of this magnitude demands. Working within, and supported by, a dynamic innovation ecosystem in Quebec, including the Bromont Science Park, Unither Bioelectronics is eager and energized to push the current knowledge and boundaries to the next stages of development in the field of autonomous electric vertical flight.
