    Mine Kafon Air with 3D mapping software

    The Mine Kafon Air is designed to scan selected areas with a high definition camera and is able to obtain information about the conditions of a certain region and define areas of concern. Using this information, the Mine Kafon Air creates systematic, efficient flight paths for subsequent detection and detonation drones. Therefore, the user knows the topography of the region and specifically of dangerous areas. The camera used is the mvBlueFOX-MLC. This module is a fully featured compact board-level camera perfectly targeted for space and cost sensitive OEM applications. A superior image quality in combination with a very high frame rate make the camera ideally suited for its purpose.

    The final models used in the field to map the danger areas around the world will cost around €12k. This special price of €3000 is a one-time offer for this Kickstarter campaign only, in order to reach our goal with your support..
