Pushing the Frontiers of Exploration and Technology

Drone.jpgPanspermia is a theory that suggests that the seeds of life are prevalent throughout the Universe and life on Earth began by such seeds landing on Earth and propagating. The theory has origins in the ideas of Anaxagoras, a Greek philosopher. Modern time astronomers and Nobel prize winners support the idea. The Egyptians traced the origin of our civilization to a comet. The comet’s name is Pythom. Since the beginning of time, our Earth has been explored and its horizon expanded by wanderers and adventurers. Names like Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, and Ernst Shackleton are forever etched in the exploration history of man.

“No doubt the explorers of 2015, if there is anything left to explore, will carry pocket wireless telephones, fitted with wireless telescopes” said Thomas Orde-Lees in Shackleton’s Endurance Expedition, 1915.

He was right, but we were early. In 2001 Contact was created – by explorers – named after the movie Contact and Carl Sagan, whose 1985 novel was the basis for the film. Ever since then, PDA’s and Sat phones inside our frozen jackets, we scale Everest, climb K2, and swim to the North Pole transmitting pictures and videos in instant diaries back to the world. 21st century is the century of technology and exploration. It is the century of Hi-Tech gadgets and pushing the frontiers of knowledge and information. Recent X-Prize competition was aimed at just that, pushing the frontiers of space using commercial technology.

Little do many know on the outskirts of Islamabad, near Sihala SATUMA is the pioneer company in Pakistan that develops unmanned aerial vehicles, including high speed target drones and multipurpose aerial surveillance aircrafts, SATUMA has excelled in indigenous development, worldwide, for over 10 years.

An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is an aircraft with no onboard pilot. UAVs can be remote controlled aircraft (e.g. flown by a pilot at a ground control station) or can fly autonomously based on pre-programed flight plans or more complex dynamic automation systems. UAVs are currently used for a number of missions, including reconnaissance, exploration and attack roles.

We need more free spirits like SATUMA.
