Protect endangered species through global collaboration with scientists and engineers to design and develop drones with on edge computing power for on-board data processing capabilities that biologists, researchers, and rangers can apply as tools to save and defend wildlife.
PROGRAMS & PROJECTS.
Kashmir World Foundation divisions of art, science and technology collaborate to create programs and projects for academics and conservationists to design, develop and apply technology solutions for endangered species.
Kashmir Academy is the education division of Kashmir World Foundation. The Academy has created a network of academics and professionals engaged in collaborative and hands-on educational programs to solve real world challenges using robotic systems and artificial intelligence through the power of open source hardware and software tools. Innovative projects are embracing drones as companions that are vital to solving local and global catastrophes.
Kashmir Robotics is the science and technology division of Kashmir World Foundation. Kashmir Robotics develops and integrates custom, mission-focused unmanned aerial systems (UASs) that are equipped with artificial intelligence, allowing them to process data on-board, making them an extraordinarily beneficial tool used for the conservation and counter-poaching of endangered species.
Wildlife poaching is the act of illegally killing animals for their body parts to gain a financial benefit. This illegal trade worth more than $23 billion a year is depleting the earth's natural resources to fuel criminal syndicates involved not only with the poaching of endangered species, but human trafficking, drugs, weapons and money laundering. Kashmir Robotics projects help detect, identify and attempt to deter poaching using lethal and not lethal methods.
Kashmir Rose is the art history division of Kashmir World Foundation. Kashmir Rose collaborates on protecting endangered species through the integration of art, science & technology. Product purchases from Kashmir Rose provide KwF with a financial infrastructure to develop technology solutions for wildlife conservation and counter poaching of endangered species worldwide.
Made from environmentally friendly and ethically sourced fibers from the high altitude mountains of Kashmir goats, these one-of-a-kind, timeless shawls are hand-crafted by Master Artists.
Hands-on Drone Workshops
Educational Drone Kits
KwF hands-on workshops are interactive and engaging for students of all ages. The Build a Drone workshops can tailored to meet the needs of academics and conservationists.
All-inclusive drone kits can save time and money for teachers and students. KwF drone kits are designed so you can build, program and operate your drone using a Transmitter and ground station software.
Wrap yourself with Himalayan warmth as a gift from nature. All Kashmir-Rose products are handcrafted in Kashmir to support local communities and protect endangered wildlife.
