With the ability to overcome obstacles and deficiencies in ground infrastructure, ‘drones’ are poised to transform aspects of how Humanitarian Assistance and International Development is delivered in remote and difficult to reach areas. From cargo delivery to environmental monitoring and wildlife protection, the latest developments in multi-role drone technology are capable of serving an ever widening range of applications in the most impoverished and challenging regions. This talk will discuss UAVAid’s 2019 flight programme of the Hansard V drone in Malawi, and how just a single aircraft was able to deliver medical supplies, map rural areas and support anti-poaching with the Rangers, all in a single day.

Daniel Ronen is co-founder of UAVAid Ltd., a UK based developer of specialist drones for Humanitarian and Development applications. He is one of the UK’s leading experts in Development and Humanitarian UAV applications and architect of the multi-role (development) UAV business model, and a regular conference and event speaker. Daniel is a proponent of developing a UK based drone industry and is an IMechE Fellow and member of Royal Aeronautical Society.
