Introducing Mine Kafon Drone, an airborne demining system developed to clear all land mines around the world in less than 10 years. MKD uses a three step process to map, detect and detonate land mines.
1. Mapping:First the drone flies over the whole field with an aerial 3D mapping system to identify all the dangerous areas with GPS waypoints.
2. Detection:Equipped with a robotic metal detecting arm the MKD hovers above the ground at approximately 4 cm to detect mines. Every detected mine is geotagged on the operator’s system to construct a map of known mine locations.
3. Destroying:For the final phase of the process the MKD, attached with a robotic gripping arm, places a small detonator on every detected mine. The land mine is then detonated from a safe distance using a timer.
MKD platform: the MKD also provides an online platform where all the data acquired is visible in real-time. The platform shows all of the detections dangerous areas and safe locations and the photographs and GPS coordinates of any detections. This data is stored online in the cloud. The mapping of explosives allows the platform to calculate the estimated clearance time of an area as well as the resources required for the execution. The Mine Kafon Drone is up to 20 times faster and 200 cheaper then the available technologies.
