Designed to be utilized as a means of providing medical treatment in remote locations where medical personnel are unable to access, or to provide medical care in areas with too hostile of conditions, these drones are designed to be remotely controlled by a medically trained operator, or to function autonomously.
The 'Remote Medical Drone' technology has been designed to incorporate standard medical technology available to the United Outer Colonies and Lorath Matriarchy. Through the combining of technology available, a standardized and affordable drone can be manufactured which allows for the affordable delivery of medical aid to anywhere which it is needed.
To greater serve the goal of being able to deliver aid, the medical drone technology has been designed to be able to be launched from military hardware such as the M'Cel launcher, or Lorath missile launcher technologies. After being launched and deployed, these drones can effectively seek out injured individuals and deliver emergency medical treatment to stabilize or fully repair wounded individuals depending on the extent of damage present. The drones accomplish their task through remote control by a trained operator, or by following automated programming.
Mi-Type launcher compatible variants are designed to fit the dimensions of the Mi-Sized missile. Other launch able drones are designed to the same parameters.
The 12-Inch drone unit is designed in a spherical shape.
All units are colored a bright orange to improve their ability to be spotted by individuals in distress. However, units can also be painted in other colors to promote stealth deployment.
The foundation of the Remote Medical Drone's practicality is the automated medical treatment system, this system utilizes complex programming which allows it to interpret the DNA of a patient and determine what is wrong with a patient based upon the 'blueprint' made available by the patient's DNA. This system allows for the detection of viral material, foreign DNA such as bacterial microbes, and the detection of physical injuries which would disturb the standard structural parameters of the patient's tissues.
An additional function of the automated medical treatment system is the persistent monitoring of surrounding atmosphere and the analysis of tissue samples which would allow for the detection of harmful pathogens such as weapons-grade nanomachines, chemical weapons, biological weapons, harmful gases, and even allergens. When such harmful materials are detected, an alert is transmitted to the operator, and a visual and audio alert is given to the patient.
Along with the capability to diagnose and detect problems, the automated medical treatment system allows for the drone to automatically go about treating a patient's injuries or administering the proper treatment to prevent harm to the patient.
|Note: When possible, the drone can connect to the Lorath Matriarchy or UOC database in regard to individual medical files to aid in treatment, this communication is highly encrypted and requires an authorized operator to monitor. Drones which detect tampering to their treatment system automatically self terminate.|
Housed within the drone is a reservoir of Lorath medical nanomachines. These nanomachines are able to be administered through an extending hypodermal injector device. Between the injector and the reservoir is a nanomachine configuration device which automatically configures the nanomachines which are to be applied to optimize their configuration in regard to the treatment of the patient's detected injuries.
The nanomachines can also be sprayed from the injector assembly as a gas to nullify airborne threats, or to treat numerous people within a confined space.
The standard configuration of the automated drone includes two doses of Endurance and two doses of nuclear, biological, and chemical generalized counter agents. These drugs can be applied through the same injector utilized by the nanomachines.
|Note: Drones can be outfitted with various drugs, and due to the manufacture of these drones being aided by the United Manufacturing Cooperative, many drugs produced by NovaCorp are available for use.|
The automated medical drone system includes a standard medical suite in each unit which is capable of providing surgical care to a patient. Treatment ranging from removing a splinter to removing shrapnel from a major organ can be applied by this unit. The surgical tools included in the surgical suite are housed on a trio of small extending tentacle-like limbs. Each limb includes its own camera.
'Limb 1' is a tentacle-like tube which is designed to 'snake' its way into a patient to access the location in a patient which needs to be treated.
Limb two is another tentacle-like tube, however, this tube houses robotic components which are designed to mechanically handle a patient.
The third limb is designed to deliver essential drugs, nutrients, and air to the patient. This limb is designed to split in half to allow for the limb to position itself properly.
Small drone units are capable of delivering three days worth of nutrients to a single patient which can be injected directly into the patient.
The larger drone unit is capable of delivering a week's worth of nutrients to a single patient.
The nutrients held onboard the drone can alternatively be utilized as material to be used in the construction of new tissues when utilized with nanomachine compound treatments.
Housed within the unit are a series of internal autoclaves which are utilized to sterilize the limbs of the drone. The internal autoclave system reaches 2500F.
When not in use, the limbs of the drone are treated with Lorath Assault and Recombination Nanoscopic Probes which are designed to seek out any pathogens or harmful organics and neutralize them. Before limb deployment, these nanomachines are purged from the arms and stored in a small holding compartment.
To prevent the transfer of pathogens upon the surface of the drone itself, it includes a heating system which can heat it's external shell to 4000F. This system has a safeguard built into it which prevents it from being in operation near humanoids. However, the system can be overridden by an operator. The heating system also activates if the drone is being tampered with by an unauthorized individual.
A small tube can be extended from the drone which can spray a mist of alcohol upon a given area on a patient or upon the drone itself to sterilize it.
The drone is powered by bacterial charge packs, hydrogen cells, and is compatible with external power systems.
The drone utilizes conventional Lorath communication technology.
The drone moves itself upon terrain and patients through the use of a series of spider-like limbs which allow it to crawl about. These limbs include an adhesive gel upon the tips which allow for the unit to grasp onto surfaces in zero atmosphere.
In space applications, the drone unit is capable of moving itself at up to 30 MPH utilizing gravitational propulsion systems. In atmosphere, the unit is capable of moving at 15 MPH without external assistance.
The automated drone includes common sensors, and empathic sensors, along with an Advanced Emergency Monitor and Communication Device. Also included are tactile, olfactics, and gustation sensors, which allow for the drone to touch, smell, and taste.
