WINGS FOR THOSE IN NEED.
Wings For Aid, a community powered by experts, has developed a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System that delivers humanitarian goods to people isolated by natural disasters and man-made crises — safely and with pinpoint accuracy.
Starting 2021, our tested system will support emergency organisations worldwide in bridging the notorious “last mile” in humanitarian aid logistics. Operated in multiples, the system is capable of carrying tons of food, blankets, medicines and other life-saving commodities per day in a 250-km radius. Our self-landing cardboard boxes can hold 70 liters of volume or 20 kg weight and does not need a parachute.
A SELF-LANDING DELIVERY BOX
Central to the solution of wings for aid is the patented delivery box. It is designed to land itself in an upright position when dropped from 50-500 metres and absorb the landing impact — without a parachute.
Made out of biodegradable cardboard, the box can be mass-produced like any ordinary cardboard box. Each box is to safely deliver a 20-kg payload of food, water or any other life-saving commodities.
Wings For Aid was founded by Dutch entrepreneur and innovator Mr. Barry Koperberg in 2014. The goal: to develop and deliver a scalable and reliable delivery system based on proven cargo-drone technology that makes micro-distribution possible anywhere, while reducing operational costs, mitigating risks and maximising operational efficiency.
Wings For Aid partners with a variety of experts who approach the “last-mile problem” from all required angles and scientific perspectives, including global logistics, aerospace design, packaging, international aviation law, and remote-control systems. In this community, creative ideas and concepts are challenged, fine-tuned and put to action and products.
