The Mine Kafon Drone is a highly innovative hexacopter that is designed to be able to clear minefields in a safe, effective and rapid manner.

Landmines continue to be a huge problem in many parts of the world, what with many landmines continuing to lurk beneath the surface of the ground in regions of the world that previously suffered through armed conflict. While it is indeed possible to clear minefields using human personnel and animals, there are disadvantages to both these methods. This is where the Mine Kafon Drone comes in. This drone first flies over an area of interest and creates a 3D map, marking potentially hazardous areas. It then uses a metal detector arm to look for mines.

By clearing minefields up to 20 times faster than conventional methods and with less associated expense, the Mine Kafon Drone stands to be a key tool in the mission to de-mine the world.
