Our mission

Every day, numerous civilians are injured or killed by landmines and other remnants of war. Currently removing these is extremely time consuming, difficult and dangerous. More than 60 countries worldwide are affected and millions of people live with the risk of being injured or killed as a result. Despite the progress that has been made in the past decades, landmines and explosives remnants of war still have devastating effects on many local communities. Along with direct casualties among civilians, landmines cause lasting psychological trauma and impede long-term social and economic re-developmental following conflict. The technologies used to clear mines have barely changed over the past 20 to 30 years. Techniques used are dangerous, slow and are require lots of manpower. Using current technologies, clearing or even detecting all land mines across the world would take over 1100 years. At Mine Kafon lab, our research and development lab seeks to blend creative and technical ideas to provide new solutions to this global problem. Our mission is to develop a radical solution based on the combination of a cloud-based mapping platform and an airborne detection system. Our Mine Kafon Drones could be up to 20 times faster than traditional de-mining technologies, Along with being safer, and up to 200 times cheaper than some current solutions.

With the Mine Kafon Drone we can save thousands of lives and have lasting positive effects on countless communities around the world. Such civilians effected by remnants of war could benefit from increased mobility and access to water, education and agricultural/industrial resources.

Our team

At Mine Kafon, our team of engineers, designers and others motivated by humanitarian innovation collaborate together from our in-house lab and from around the rest of the world to systematically improve solutions for UXO removal. We are a diverse team of young, multinational and multidiciplined individuals all working towards a common goal.
