Formed in 2013 AirDropBox Ltd set out to develop a safe, cheap and biodegradable delivery system for use in humanitarian aid and general logistics.
The Air Drop Box team was assembled to design and develop a range of air drop systems to overcome the absence of such a product.
The team comprises of engineers and scientists from the marine, aerospace, humanitarian aid & automotive industries. AirDropBox Ltd is a privately owned company and is funded by a charitable trust.
Why has Air Drop Box been developed?
The high cost of air delivery systems has long been a challenge to Logisticians and humanitarian aid organisations. AirDropBox will overcome those challenges.
The Air Drop Box is a balance between materiel protection, low cost and safe delivery. The design and operating parameters are as simple as possible to enable the widest use.
Through careful selection, material development and a lot of testing we have created a system that is constructed almost entirely from biodegradable materials (91.4% by weight per system) meaning that not only are we reducing the cost of supplying aid by air, we are significantly reducing the environmental impact associated with air dropping supplies and essential equipment.
AirDropBox is a concept in final development and extensive flight trials have been conducted. A patent has been granted in Europe and will shortly apply worldwide with a focus on USA, Russia, China, Japan, India, the Middle East, South America, South Korea, Australia and Canada.
