4 1 Overview 1.1 Objective The Flying Donkey Challenge aims to drive innovation, collaboration and the foundations to implement large scale unmanned civilian air cargo delivery services in Africa and beyond. 1.2 The Flying Donkey* Challenge The first Flying Donkey around Mount Kenya in under 24 hours, delivering and collecting 20 kilo payloads along the way. 1.3 *Flying Donkey definitions The following definitions are subject to final approval from the competent Civil Aviation Authorities (e.g. KCAA). Flying Donkey: an unmanned cargo aircraft with a maximum takeoff weight of 60 kilos (i.e. fixed wing, rotary or lighter than air aircraft). Cargo Hold: minimum volume of at least 0.126m 3 with easy access and space to fit two carry-on suitcases (i.e. 45x25x56cm each). Ground Station: a cleared dirt surface (max slope of 5%), minimum 50m by 10m, with at least two 15 approach/departing sectors with no surrounding obstacles above a 10 angle from the centre and at a maximum altitude of 2 500m above sea level. Low Altitude Flight Corridor: Uncontrolled segregated airspace (i.e. Flying Donkeys only). Minimum width = 200m (aircraft must be able to perform a u-turn inside the corridor). Minimum altitude above ground level = 50m. Maximum altitude above ground level = 300m. Flight Rules: Minimum visibility = 500m, clear of cloud. 1.4 Tracks The Challenge will be broken down into four separate tracks to address the various issues and find the best solutions: 1) Technology 2) Legal 3) Logistics 4) Design 1.5 Schedule & location Starting in November 2014, annual events will be organised in Africa to demonstrate progress in each track. Once all tracks have achieved their objectives, teams will be able to enter the Flying Donkey Challenge. The Flying Donkey Challenge will be organized annually until The first event will take place in Northern Kenya. Following sub-challenges may be organized in other African countries with similar facilities. The Flying Donkey Challenge will take place in several locations around Mount Kenya. Certain qualifying events will be organised regionally and some sub-challenges, such a simulations and logistic designs, can be presented online. Bundi-Afrotech, QIE.0, EPFL, 1015 Lausanne, Suisse (Rules V1.2) - 3 -

5 1.6 Rules & criteria Worldwide entrants to the Flying Donkey Challenge must collaborate with a recognized African higher education school or laboratory. Flying Donkeys must demonstrate that they meet all the design and safety criteria before they can participate in a sub-challenge. Sub-challenge rules will be set and escalated annually. Existing landing strips, shorter distances, slower flight speeds, smaller payloads will be used for subchallenges. Flying Donkey without Cargo Hold (i.e. no payload) can be used to win certain sub-challenges. Teams will have to demonstrate that they comply with all applicable laws, regulations, certifications, licensing, taxes and insurances before they can fly their aircrafts. 1.7 Team selection and judging Selection of teams will be based on specific sequential and prerequisite milestones, deliverables and activities: Registration October 2013 Written application 28 th February 2014 Technical report and videos March 2014 Interview and presentation April/May 2014 Confirmation and grant allocations June 2014 In Kenya November 2014: Pre-flight inspection Missions A maximum of 15 teams will be accepted every year for the sub-challenges and up to 5 teams can enter the Flying Donkey Challenge. 1.8 Grants & rewards Up to US$ 2 million will be granted annually to teams applying for tracks, sub-challenges or participating in the Flying Donkey Challenge. Up to US$ 1 million will be awarded annually to winners of sub-challenges. US$ 2 million will be shared between the first three teams to successfully complete the Flying Donkey Challenge (not before 2018). 1.9 Stakeholders World-leading researchers, inventors and suppliers of pilotless systems Operators of delivery services (post, courier, logistics, e-commerce) Representatives of government authorities (legal, regulatory, certification, licensing, data protection & privacy) Insurance and safety specialists Architects and designers of flying donkey Ground Stations Bundi-Afrotech, QIE.0, EPFL, 1015 Lausanne, Suisse (Rules V1.2) - 4 -

9 4 Flying Donkey definitions The following definitions are subject to final approval from the competent Civil Aviation Authorities (e.g Flying Donkey A Flying Donkey (FD) is an authorized Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) that can carry Cargo, with a maximum takeoff weight of 60 kilos. The aeronautical design can be fixed wing, rotary or lighter than air. The powertrain can be either combustion or electric. The total Bill of Materials (BOM) and energy consumption must be readily available and low-cost. 4.2 Cargo Hold A Flying Donkey will hold cargo with a minimum volume of 0.126m 3 (i.e. 126 litres) with access and space to fit two standardised Containers. 4.3 Container Container volume will be 0.063m 3, have a maximum weight of 10 kilos and the following dimensions (i.e. maximum carry-on luggage size): Height = 45cm Width = 25cm Length = 56cm 4.4 Ground Station Ground Stations are used for manual loading and unloading of containerised payloads, refuelling/recharging and maintaining/repairing Flying Donkeys. A Ground Station is a cleared dirt surface (max slope of 5%), at least 50m by 10m, with at least two 15 approach/departing sectors with no obstacles above a 10 angle from the centre and at a maximum altitude of 2 500m above sea level.
