BATHAWK RECON TRIALS ONGOING IN TANZANIA TO IMPROVE ELEPHANT SURVEILLANCE
(Posted 25th March 2017)
Bathawk’s Team wanted to reach out and put straight any questions readers may have about Bathawk in the media this last ten days or two weeks.
On the one hand was the organization presented to the National “CEO Club” and got a bit of local coverage and an invite to the Tanzanian minister of Natural Resources and Tourism.
On the other hand the New York Times ran an article about a South African company flying “Bat Hawks” in Malawi. Needless to say with the NYT involved a lot of queries, especially from American supporters arose of the kind: ‘Have you moved to South Africa? Are you flying in Malawi?‘
No, Bathawk Recon is in Tanzania with a eye steady on the target of conceiving and deploying the most effective UAV anti poaching Service in Africa and maybe the world. To achieve that are they working hard to even better relate to Government, brain storming with ex Special Forces to get effective operational plans and investigate to find the best and most appropriate technology.
Bathawk ran three trials, one for the DT-18, one for the DT-26 and one for the DT-50. Any interested party can get in touch and ask for a trial report. We connect with intelligence experts on how to collect, store and collate data to use downstream. If anyone think about it in any depth it is obvious one needs to get these right to do to get the job done right.
Bathawk had however reached out a year or so ago to the partners of the RSA team but they didn’t seem inclined to share or be party of these efforts. From the article in the New York Times one simply can’t tell if they have made any progress apart of course for the very cool name they took from the Tanzanian organization!
