Wednesday 27 July 2022, Esri Eastern Africa, and Fahari Aviation (FAV) entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) towards closer collaboration. The MoU binds the collaboration between the two organizations on sharing knowledge and expertise on applied GIS knowledge and Aviation Technologies.   

The development of Geo-spatial solutions and application of aviation technologies such as Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) will extend human potential and allow the execution of dangerous or difficult tasks safely and efficiently, saving time and money. The Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) approved the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in the Kenyan airspace in March 2020. UAS will also play an important role in the economic growth of Eastern Africa. Applied use of UAS platforms is evident in photography, delivery of high value packages, precision agriculture, wildlife management, surveillance, and aerial mapping. 

Speaking at the signing ceremony, which was held at Esri Eastern Africa Headquarter offices, Hawkins Musili, Managing Director at Fahari Aviation noted that the use of UAS will play an important role in the economic growth of the region as capabilities of the technology are limitless.
