Military in the Donetsk front received drones and generators from the Techiia Foundation
The air arsenal of the 59th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was replenished with two dozen DJI quadcopters and 35 powerful diesel generators, which were purchased and handed over to the military by the Techiia Foundation. The upgrade cost is more than UAH 6.8 million.
The 59th separate mechanized infantry brigade n. a. Yakov Handziuk received a large package from the Techiia Foundation NGO: 10 DJI Mavic 3 Fly More Combo quadcopters, 10 DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced, and 35 diesel generators with a capacity of 6.9 kW each.
The military needs civilian DJI drones primarily for reconnaissance, but they can perform other important tasks as well. For instance, the DJI Mavic 3 Fly More Combo can stay in the air for up to 46 minutes, reach a speed of up to 19 m/s, and transmit data at a distance of up to 15 km. Also, artificial intelligence technologies and high-quality cameras allow effective reconnaissance, focus on surveillance targets, and detect threats.
The generators will supply power to the command posts of the brigade units, which will make it possible to conveniently plan operations and support the life of the military in the field.
"In November 2022, soldiers of the 59th brigade took part in the battles in the south and the liberation of the right bank of the Kherson region, and they are working in Donbas in the meantime. I am sure that with our support and the assistance of other volunteers, they will bring much more good news for Ukraine," comments Oleg Krot, director of the Techiia Foundation and managing partner of the TECHIIA holding.
Since the beginning of the full-scale russian invasion, the Techiia Foundation has more than once provided the Defense Forces of Ukraine with drones. In particular, these are FlyEye aerial systems, several dozen DJI drones, 6 Autel quadcopters, and a VTOL-type unmanned aircraft complex, that is, an aircraft-type drone with vertical take-off and landing.
Overall, the Techiia Foundation purchased $22 million worth of necessary items for the Defense Forces of Ukraine. A separate contribution was made by Oleg Krot personally — almost $40 million was converted into protection and useful things for the soldiers. Due to military secrecy, the details of these purchases can not be disclosed.
