Assessing the application of drone technology to help communities in remote Papua New Guinea

GUS was engaged by World Vision, a World-leading humanitarian aid, development and advocacy organisation to assess the feasibility of utilizing small drones to assist its operations.


GUS conducted wide-ranging consultation with World Vision staff in Port Moresby, Madang, as well as one of their remotest project sites in the Middle Ramu region of PNG.

GUS found clear benefits in the short-term to use of the technology to support key areas in World Visions programming, as well as in the future once an internal framework and capability to support the planned activities is well established.

GUS worked with CASA PNG and PNG Airservices to conduct a number of proof of concept exercises.
