We’re really proud to have an article appear in the ARPAS-UK online magazine this month about the humanitarian mine action Odyssey 2025 drone project in Chad.
A link to the article is here.
ARPAS_UK is the Association of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems, a peak industry association which supports and acts on behalf of the professional remotely piloted aircraft (RPAS) community in the United Kingdom.
We’re grateful to have been recognised by the AAUS – Australian Association for Unmanned Systems in being issued the 2020 Humanitarian Achievement award – for demonstrating the role that unmanned technologies can play in bettering our world. Pioneering the use of drones for humanitarian mine action in Chad has not been easy, the programme has been challenging, but we did it! Thanks are in order to the team from Humanity & Inclusion/Handicap International, the High Commission for demining in Chad (the HCND), and donor the Belgian Ministry for Foreign Affairs who have all played vital roles in making the project possible.
