Our purpose

Let’s face it. Drones often have that bad rep due to inhumane military use. We believe that by developing drones for lifesaving missions instead, we can bring aviation to new, sustainable heights. We believe in drones for good.

From saving lives to uplifting lives

Drones aren’t just here to stay, they’re here to save us. Starting with blood shortages, wildfires and other life-threatening situations. Once they’re developed and deployed in larger numbers, they’ll start propelling us towards liveable cities and circular economies.

Ultimately, drone technology will uplift our lives in ways that are still hard to imagine. But this one vision on the far horizon is plain to see: the aerial transportation of humans. See that flying car over there? We’re working on it, by saving lives first.

The way out is the way up!

Protecting nature reserves: Rapid detection of wildfires

With departments of the Dutch Fire brigade, we're investigating the use of drones for rapid detection of wildfires to protect large nature reserves. With our thermal camera the fire was quickly detected. Our emission-free drone passed the noise pollution criteria and blended into her surroundings with her birdlike figure.
