Yonah was founded in October 2016 off the back of a consulting trip to Papua New Guinea with Mission Aviation Fellowship. The trip saw 2 of the founders witness first hand the problems associated with access in some of the most remote areas around. Cold-chain management was problematic, medical supplies could not go where they needed to go due to lack of roads, unavailability of manned aircraft assets and just the sheer time it would take to traverse it by foot.
Returning to Singapore, Yonah was founded specifically to explore the use of autonomous drone technology to make a difference in these areas. We design cargo drone infrastructure for some of the most remote areas on this planet.
Our systems are designed to require minimal infrastructure and limited manpower, to launch and recover, service, and provide necessary maintenance in the field.
