Medical Drone

Medical Drone to deliver the emergency medicine in the mountains of Nepal

  • Problem: Lack of reliable connectify & specifications from drone prototype for the use in mountainous regions in Nepal: flight duration, height, payload, robustness
  • Solution: R&D from an appropriate conefity protocol/ systems and improvement of the mechanical specs form the drone 
  • Partners: Hva, Avans, KPN, Twente, Syfly, NIC
  • Impact: Fast delivery of medicine where there are no roads or bad roads in the mountains of Nepal.

Drones Geographic Mapping

  • Problem: Lacking resources to Geographic Mapping rural areas 
  • Solution:  Development of a drone which is able to acquire very high resolution data and image, also 2D and 3D mapping of geography as fast as possible at the time of need. 
  • Partners: Avans & RAN 
  • Impact: mapping small area as well as large area with low expenses in order to predict landslides & Floods

Femtosecond Optics Lab

  • Problem: Lack of expertise in femtosecond 
  • Solution: Long term collaboration to conduct R&D 
  • Partners: PRI 
  • Impact: Establishing a femtosecond optics lab in Nepal is to open several windows of opportunities to work in the area of femtosecond optics, enhance the quality of research in Nepal and consequently develop a highly skilled scientific workforce to work in applications that are relevant for solving their local needs.

MOT – Mission oxygen TEAM

Problem: 

  • Hundreds of people are dying on a daily basis because of lack of ICU beds, Oxygen supply, and many others deprived of oxygen are lying helplessly in the corridors of hospitals.
  • Oxygen plants, concentrators, ventilators, and other equipment are coming to Nepal but without technical after sales support.

Solution: 

  • Technical support/training of 100+ engineers who have volunteered in Nepal for the installation, maintenance & operations of oxygen plants, concentrators, & ventilators.
  • Setting up a monitoring system/platform that provides insight into what respiratory equipment is present and its status per region.
  • Mobilizing companies and organisations that can make oxygen plants, oxygen concentrators and ventilators to be readily available for Nepal.
