Founded in 1965, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has diligently served the world - providing aid to more than 170 impoverished countries. It stands as a beacon of hope and a call for change, helping to create sustainable solutions for economies and social policies alike.

Ford is a proud contributor to the UNDP campaign, sending fleets of F-150s to regions in need of mobile support (including evacuations, ration and supply deliveries, medication deliveries, and more). Now it further embraces the policy of goodwill - fusing its F-Series with drone technology to improve emergency land assessments.



According to Popular Mechanics, Ford is partnering with renowned drone manufacturer DJI to create a new system for the UNDP. This system will employ a quad-copter platform, blending camera sensors with smartphone connectivity to effortlessly survey natural disaster sites - identifying potential concerns for transportation teams and even assisting in the recovery of men, women, and children.

The drone will travel with the F-150s, launching from cabs when needed and delivering short-range support. This will allow UNDP teams to more effectively define their emergency plans and achieve faster response times.

Through advanced technology Ford, DJI, and the UNDP can improve the world.
