Management expects its OxySure drones to carry kits designed for various types of emergencies or disasters. The payloads could include automated external defibrillators and accessories for cardiac arrest patients, as well as kits for victims of fire, flood, earthquake, chemical spill and a number of other emergency categories.

The drones will be equipped with standard features such as live digital streaming, and other features that may include an autopilot system, GPS navigation, and other safety features.

Drones can often get to emergency situations faster by flying in straight lines, avoiding congested traffic situations, or other obstacles resulting from natural disasters. The drones are designed for typical payloads of less than 15 pounds, but are capable of carrying up to 55 pounds, and in all instances, the drones will be used under controlled conditions in airspace that is limited and predetermined.

Julian Ross, CEO, stated: "The recent floods in Texas have given us yet another set of examples in a long and ever growing list of situations where drones specifically configured for emergencies could have enhanced the heroic efforts of our first responders. Low altitude real-time imagery assists with locating people, locating emergency situations, and delivering much-needed emergency supplies quickly as an easily detachable payload."

The company has filed with the Department of Transportation for exemption from the Federal Aviation Regulations for utilizing drones in aerial operations in support of emergency response and services, disaster response and recovery, search and rescue, and humanitarian relief efforts. The company also filed a provisional patent with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office entitled "System for Enhancing Emergency Response by using Unmanned Aircraft Systems."

The shares are trading at $0.67, and with 29.8 million shares outstanding, the company is capitalized at $20 million.
