Goal

One of the big stories of the war in Ukraine has been the emergence of commercial drones as a life-saving tool on the battlefield. Basic commercial drones, with prices around $2000, are relatively inexpensive. Higher-end long-range drones, with thermal imaging, start at 10 times as much and go up from there. Given their versatility on the battlefield and the countless lives they save, commercial drones have been invaluable for Ukrainian soldiers.


The number one way in which drones contribute to saving lives is in their ability to perform reconnaissance with much lower risk to soldiers. Instead of sending soldiers to physically surveil areas, they can scout them from above. This helps keep soldiers out of harm's way while gathering critical intelligence data. Drones equipped with thermal imaging cameras allow soldiers to operate them at night when it can be much harder to spot danger. 


A few months ago, the lives of a team of soldiers were saved by a thermal drone the very same day it was delivered by UAO. The soldiers were lost and surrounded by the enemy, and the drone was used to help them escape encirclement and get them back to their base. Stories like these confirm that commercial drones are an integral part of UAO’s mission to provide the defenders of Ukraine with protective, life-saving gear. Existing drones are regularly shot down and lost on the battlefield, requiring a continuous supply. And now that Ukraine is taking the initiative to expel the barbaric invaders, the need for these eyes in the sky to be available at the front lines becomes even more urgent.


Your donations to this fundraiser will be used to procure and supply those life-saving drones, which will include:


  • Both basic and more expensive thermal camera-equipped quadcopter drones
  • Longer-range high-end drones

Because of the ongoing large demand for such drones from front line units, we are targeting a total fundraising goal of $200,000, to be acquired over the next 3 weeks, so we can quickly supply the units. We already bought 12 thermal drones and they are on their way as we speak.
