Hi Manisha,

Thanks for the contact. In regards to your points:
1. Please see the video at the top of the page which gives a good overview of our aims.
2. As mentioned to Isaac, this report is probably the most comprehensive/up to date business case analysis of cargo drones in the humanitarian sector and was supervised by one of our founding team https://www.msf.or.jp/innovation/pdf/drones.pdf
3. Unfortunately, that information can't be shared in a public forum due to confidentiality agreements.

Best wishes.

Hi Isaac, thanks for the comment. In regards to your question regarding the regions, this report from MSF Japan (supervised by one of our founders) probably gives the best overview of appropriate contexts and use cases: https://www.msf.or.jp/innovation/pdf/drones.pdf

As for legal restrictions, UAViators (http://uaviators.org/) provides comprehensive overviews of the individual country guidelines and how to approach them. Again, something the Rigi Team have been closely involved in.

As for community engagement, our team were founders of Drone Adventures (http://droneadventures.org/) which deals a lot with ensuring community buy-in at the early stage of drone projects. The aim is for our implementation model to handover to licensed local providers to ensure that operations are sustainable and can benefit the local community economically and through faster service provision.

Thanks.
