Environmental Protection

Environmental solutions tailored for authorities like the Kuwait Environment Public Authority (EPA) help governments and enterprises to monitor various environmental aspects and gather data on possible disasters such as oil spills, red tide and radiation leaks, as well as to enable the monitoring of pollution levels in the air, water and soil.

Use cases:

  1. Oil Spill Detection
    Monitoring oil spills is necessary to address concerns raised over their effects and the impact of the associated clean-up response. Oil spills can occur in remote, sensitive, and logistically difficult locations, often exacerbated by adverse weather conditions, making them difficult to assess and contain.
    Zain Drone provides real-time monitoring information via wireless video streaming, providing information about existing oil spills and presenting clear boundaries of slicks and sheens of oil. Drones allow for the safe and cost-effective monitoring and managing of oil spills, identifying the exact location of thick and thin layers of oil and their boundaries.
  2. Air Pollution Management
    Air pollutants are especially difficult to monitor with conventional means of observation. Drones are well-suited to measuring and monitoring air pollution because of their mobility and flexible flying movement.
    UAVs can monitor wind, temperature, humidity, air quality and many other chemical parameters such as H2S, CH4, CO2, SO2, VOCs, and close to 30 other chemicals.
    Sensor readings along with GPS positioning and altitude can provide a 3D mapping of ambient pollution and odor levels.
  3. Water Pollution and Treatment Facility
    Drones can provide robust insights in wastewater treatment facilities, which in turn can reduce costs, increase operational efficiency, and bolster the delivery of clean water.
    The application of drones for water sampling allows many aspects of biological and physicochemical sampling required to meet large-scale water sampling programs.
  4. Disaster Relief
    Drones are ideal for flying into inaccessible or dangerous areas to assess environmental disasters.
    UAVs equipped with cameras and sensors for transmitting images to create 2D base maps and 3D terrain models to evaluate damage and plan shelter reconstruction are highly effective, supplying current and accurate data to aid relief efforts.
    Drones can gather information from places humans cannot easily of safely reach to generate a snapshot of a situation, allowing officials to determine how best to deploy resources, minimize damage and save lives.
  5. Defending Wildlife
    Drones are an effective tool for inspecting populations of species in remote areas to determine their reach, and even stop poachers before they strike by pinpointing their location.
