In conditions of natural disasters or war, not only humanitarian help will be beneficial, but also its packaging and even the flying tool itself, with the help of which it is delivered. Aviation engineer and athlete-extremal Nigel Gifford is going to realize a similar concept in the form of a rescue drone consisting of materials necessary for survival.
Dron Pouuncer is a frame made of pressed wood with small universal engines for control when planning. The body of the drone consists of containers with food and supplies, its outer shell is sealed and can perform the function of the tent or become part of the clothes. The instructions in the pictures outside the case will explain how to disassemble the car and build a house out of it, make fuel for the hearth, make the essentials from parts of the first.
The filling of containers and the creation of instructions will be engaged in professional rescuers – in accordance with the conditions in the distress area. Pouuncer is universal, cheaper and suitable for use in most climatic zones. The armada of the drones is dumped from a transport aircraft at an altitude of 7 km and is planning a glideal at a distance of 100 km, using a simple GPS navigator. They can maneuver, turning around a dangerous place, and landing occurs using a small parachute.
Fully loaded Pouuncer is 75 kg of humanitarian cargo, a chance for fifty people to hold out for at least a day away from civilization. The cost of the vehicle itself will not exceed $ 200, their mass production can be expanded even in the field. The first prototype will be tested in NASA next year.
