UAVAid co-founder, Daniel Ronen, recently gave an interview to the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), for their UAS Challenge. With the interview taking place at the Institution’s HQ in London’s Westminster, he discussed the Hansard UAS platform and the opportunities drones present for improving healthcare and living standards for communities in low infrastructure contexts.

The UAS Challenge (Unmanned Aircraft Systems Challenge) is the IMechE’s leading annual student competition in the aerospace sector. The Challenge aims to lead the way in promoting value and cohesion within the industry, providing unique opportunities to universities, their teams, the individual participants and of course for our partnering organisations.

In addition to the filmed interview, an accompanying Flying High article was published in the IMechE Institution News where Daniel also discussed the collective vision he shares with his co-founder and brother, James Ronen.

Launched in 2014 with the key objectives of developing professional engineers and inspiring the next generation, the Challenge is now in its fifth year. Each annual Challenge cycle kicks-off in October, ending with a final event in June the following year.
