I am in a project with ARIA in collaboration with Reallocate to build an open source Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), that can provide courier service to locations with low humidity, high wind and high temperature.
We are developing and showcasing this system prototype at Burning Man (BM) in August 2012 as an analog to medicine delivery in remote areas with no roads.
Burning Man is a celebration of radical self-reliance.
This system will be completely off-grid and will service 50,000 people 24/7 in a 2Km diameter temporary city.
