The event, organized by Astana Hub and Aardvark Company, brought together leading experts, business and education representatives, and the Kazakh Aviation Authority.

“We are confident that Astana Hub’s Drone Technology Center will use these devices to launch innovative projects in a wide range of fields. Our goal is to lead to the growth of the community and make a significant contribution to the development of the drone industry. It is about stimulating the emergence of advanced ideas and developments,” said Astana Hub Managing Director Thanat Uskenbayev.

Guests had the opportunity to learn about the prospects for the development of the drone industry in Kazakhstan and get acquainted with the practical aspects of working with drones, such as virtual reality glasses and virtual flights using real devices.

The center will also offer educational programs and initiatives.

“Drones are the future and the solution to a huge number of problems. I have worked and interacted with various companies around the world who have achieved success in the field of drones. Kazakhstan also has success in this direction. We are confident that we can do this,” said Aardvark CEO Dmitry Ivanov.

Drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles, are used for a wide range of applications in various fields. They can be used in agriculture to monitor crop health, irrigation, planting, and spraying, as well as search and rescue, disaster management, and environmental monitoring.

Unmanned aerial vehicles were the focus of Prime Minister Olzhaz Bektenov’s recent visit to the Petropavlovsk plant for heavy equipment production.

The factory assembles two models of firefighting unmanned aerial vehicles. The first model is equipped with a system that drops special canisters containing extinguishing substances to extinguish forest-steppe fires. The second is designed to extinguish fires in high-rise buildings by firing a reactive projectile into a window opening, followed by dispersal of extinguishing material.

The factory is also negotiating with domestic companies to localize production of electronic components, cable systems and camera components. In the future, they plan to develop and improve their own software to control the drone.
