McLean, VA (PRWEB) February 23, 2016
CorasCloud, a global leader in applications and platforms that reduce the cost and complexity of business applications, today announced it has partnered with Verizon on a project to evaluate the delivery of critical medical supplies using unmanned electric helicopters. For the project, Verizon leveraged CorasNow, a cloud-based rapid application development environment, to build a comprehensive unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) mission management environment.
“This success with Verizon is an example of the power, speed, and flexibility of CorasNow,” said Jim Benson, COO of CorasCloud. “In just 72 hours we were able to design and build a comprehensive mission management environment to support an emerging and critical capability. Traditional appdev models would have taken weeks or even months to build an application like this, but we were able to complete it with CorasNow in three days.”
CorasNow is CorasCloud’s cloud-based application development environment. It allows business users to design, build, and deploy applications without code by leveraging visual design tools. It reduces application development time by more than 75% when compared to traditional application development models.
The UAV project was a joint effort between multiple Federal agencies and private organizations to evaluate if unmanned electric helicopters could deliver critical medical supplies or other products. Such supplies could be delivered to injured warfighters, victims of natural disasters, or others in remote or unreachable locations. During the evaluation, four separate missions were flown delivering tactical trauma kits into isolated locations up to seven miles away. All the missions were deemed successful.
