Summit Introduction

Some are killing machines. Others are pesky passions of the weekend hobbyist. As such, drones have not always been welcomed in our skies. Across Africa, however, projects are being launched that could revolutionise medical supply chains and commercial deliveries, combat poaching, agriculture and provide other solutions for an overburdened, underdeveloped continent. More and more African countries like South Africa, Rwanda, Malawi, Zimbabwe etc are now busy finding very innovative ways to use drones to deliver essential services and life saving solutions. As such, Private Public Partnerships (PPPs) are being formed to provide service to the general populace. Operated either autonomously based on a pre-programmed flight plan or by remote control, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are now being deployed in Africa for a variety of missions. Mostly found in military and special operation applications, UAVs are increasingly finding uses in civil and recreational applications. Drones are being used in Africa today to track poachers, to gather vital agricultural information to help farmers with their crops, and as an intelligence tool to help the military anticipate and prepare against danger.
