Ice Cube / Wildlife conservation

Ice Cube
Ice Cube

For solving the short supply of food for animals and conservation in the polar region, we conceive this UAV called ice-cube to enter the harsh environment that man can hardly enter. Ice Cube not only can hover in the sky using the high-resolution camera on-board to observe and record animal activities, but also can monitor weather condition in the region. All the live data is transmitted back to the observation station and provide the information to scientists to evaluate and predict the ecological pattern. Furthermore, Ice Cube can airdrop frozen fresh meat on a regular basis to prevent those animals suffer from hunger.
