Kashmir Robotics is the science and technology division of Kashmir World Foundation. Through the acquisition of the Technology Assisted Counter Poaching (TACP) Network, Kashmir Robotics ensures that promising ideas are supported with the most advanced science and engineering skills. Kashmir Robotics develops and integrates custom, mission-focused unmanned aerial systems (UASs) which are equipped with artificial intelligence, allowing them to process data onboard, making them an extraordinarily beneficial tool used for the conservation and counter-poaching of endangered species.
TACP–network was founded in 1991 to provide technical guidance to organizations around the world protecting endangered species and other wildlife. The network includes scientists and engineers with experience in countering poaching and trafficking of wildlife through application of sensors, communications, and computational technologies; and integrated robotics systems including unmanned aircraft and ground systems.
African bush is home to some the the world's most endangered species. The Wildlife Conservation UAV Challenge set out to develop drones that can detect and locate poachers in real-time and provide rangers with optimal information to counter poaching of rhinos and elephants.
Coastal beaches are incubators for endangered marine turtle nests. Due to over development, climate change, and predation 1 out of 1000 sea turtles survives to adulthood. With MiSHELL Drones Biologist can detect and locate sea turtle nests for more efficient and effective monitoring.
Himalayan Mountain ranges hide the world's more elusive endangered big cats. Through the applications of deep neural learning and computer vision combined with aerial data snow leopard conservationists will have new insights about their habitats and lurking dangers that could lead to extinction.
