DRONES TO WALK IN PEACE

The objective is to use drones to search and destroy anti-personnel mines, through a combination of technologies and methods that achieve maximize the cleaning of affected areas. To restore calm to walk in peace, promoting social, cultural and economic development of the regions.

DRONES TO WALK IN PEACE

From a pragmatic perspective of the evolution of species, the most primal and fundamental biological activity gesture, involved the ability to mobilize, this being the supreme mechanism that has ensured the survival, to give the benefit of the environmental scan with the aim of finding resources essential to perpetuate life.
Humans enjoy this vital skill singular, since only use two limbs for locomotion, while we use our hands with great imagination and absolute creative freedom to build, organize, design, etc., where expressions such as art, writing, music, communication vehicles are essential for human existence.
Although this scenario does not express anything new, if it's important to mention, to address the magnitude of a problem that has limited the freedom to walk. For multiple factors ideological, economic, political, dogmatic order, who converted into shares of military type that triggered the so-called asymmetric wars of low intensity, where the artifact more sinister and abhorrent, invented by man, symbolizing this type Wrestling is the landmine, which is low production costs and installation, which does not seek to kill, but to incapacitate or injure, to create a drag that generates great moral and economic impact on the sufferer, to prevent the normal use mobility.
In a country like Colombia, where such irregular war still rages, with over 50 years of uninterrupted armed conflict. There are many civilian victims, especially children, affected mutilation and irreversible damage to physical integrity, destroying their future. The same situation has lived more than 60 countries, the nations most affected are: Cambodia, Angola, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Afghanistan, El Salvador or Nicaragua. Where the post-conflict has bequeathed vast territories of these mines planted by reducing the autonomy to walk without fear, and preventing natural land use.
In this line of cause and effect, the transcendent value of human mobility, we intend to seek a technologically economic, sustainable, cost-effective, practical and workable solution; for detecting landmines, in all types of topography and climatic conditions, using drones, several types overflying the affected territories in a scheme of two layers. That as these UCAV allow multitasking focused on gathering strategic information warfare. Now we can use the operational concept for the exploration of the land, as a tool to help us detect these landmines, more efficiently, accurately, quickly and safely; than current methods, using scanning technologies penetrating radar, ultrasonic acoustic modulation infrasonic signals and infrared sensors or other scale spectrum that allows us to identify these artifacts.
The method involves the use of two types of drones, more sophisticated and expensive course fly high enough to apply its advanced sensor system identification sweeping the ground and accurately marking the problematic points of interest, where the artifacts are identified, in a digitized cartographic map, who crossed with a GIS system which will be used by drones very low altitude, to confirm the information of the points marked on the map of relief and proceed to the destruction of landmines, by shock or kinetics using ballistic methods.
By certifying the free areas of landmines, that promote and encourage, economic development, such as ecotourism, hiking, reactivation of the affected areas to be enabled for grazing or cultivation, eradicating the fear of walking.
