Based in Niamey (Niger), Drone Africa Service designs civil drones that have the capacity to operate across the Sahel region and withstand harsh weather conditions. The strength and range of these drones allows Drone Africa Service to extend its reach across all of West Africa. The drones can be used for a wide range of projects in fields as diverse as cartography, farming (aerial surveys), industry (work inspection), communication (artistic, cultural and heritage images), security (highway monitoring by air, urban surveillance, etc.), risk prevention and mitigation and disaster management, notably for the UN.

Drone Africa Service received support from Orange’s partner CIPMEN (an incubator for SMEs in Niger).
