... and Serval is a first-round winner of the Pacific Humanitarian Challenge


This is a challenge posed by AusAID, the Australian International Aid agency to help Pacific Nations following disaster and emergency situations.

Together with NZ Red Cross our proposal looks at making Serval operationally ready and in use in Pacific Nations to help people stay connected when cyclones and other disaster strikes.

Succinct Data pilot in Fiji

While we have been quiet lately, we haven't been idle.  Quite the opposite. The last few weeks we have been working on getting Succinct Data operationally ready for use by NZ Red Cross, which we have now succeeded in doing, as explained in the press release with Magpi below.

This has only been possible because of the generous support a grant from USAID, and the assistance of the folks at both Magpi and VasTerra.
