Pouncer creator Nigel Gifford OBE is a former member of the British Army Catering Corps. Having seen how inaccurate, and thus wasteful, traditional parachute aid delivery can be, Gifford designed a sustainable alternative. The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) navigates via GPS, making flight and landing extremely accurate. Its wings and body are made of empty food containers to be filled as needed depending on local dietary requirements. The shell of the vehicle provides on-the-ground shelter, and the wooden frame provides fuel.
