At NeoCortec we are proud of participating in a project that has the potential to save lives. We are providing the mesh connectivity solution for a communication device for disaster relief developed by Danish startup LinkAiders. The Reachi device was tested in the Philippines recently, and the local ABS-CBN News station invited city official Bianca Perez from Quezon City, the most populous city in the Philippines, and Pernille Skjødt from LinkAiders to present the project and its goals.

The Philippines is one of the most disaster prone areas in the world. The low-power low-cost Reachie device is designed for relief workers to share information over a mesh network even when regular networks are crippled such as during disasters. Reachi can help relief coordinators make faster and more efficient decisions.

A specially designed long-range NeoCortec radio module ensures reliable communication between relief coordinators and communication from coordinators to relief headquarters. Via the mesh network information finds its way from device to device. Unlike a conventional mesh network with fixed nodes the Reachi system can cope with moving nodes, a very important feature, as relief workers are constantly on the move.
