There were over 125 natural disasters last year, add this to
areas of conflict and the number of people starving as a result gets to breath
Access to the people affected can be restricted due to the
loss of infrastructure and many other dangers. Also, traditional methods of
deploying aid can be ineffective, inaccurate or just impossible to use.
Windhorse has developed a specialist UAV called POUNCER™
that will be loaded with appropriate food, transported to the disaster area and
fly independently to its pre-planned destination and land accurately into the
selected landing zone, avoiding all infrastructure problems, corruption or
hostile groups while saving time, money and more importantly lives.
POUNCER™'s pre-formed shell can be reused to provide
shelter, the frame can be burnt safely to cook food, and the payload, which is
food and water, provides life saving nutrition."
