Joint Operations Centre

Lewa Conservancy has recently opened a new Joint Operations Centre, which serves as the communications hub to the entire area embracing Borana to the west and all the Northern Rangeland Trust Conservancies. This covers an area with a radius of about 300km.

The launch of the revolutionary new Joint Operations Centre enables operators to see exactly what is happening across the vast landscapes of Lewa, NRT and adjacent Borana, as it occurs.

Vulcan, the high-tech and philanthropy-focused company founded by Paul G. Allen, created the new system specifically to help combat poaching and enhance wildlife management on a large scale across a vast area. Known as the Domain Awareness System (DAS), the programme integrates data and technology to provide a single picture that alerts security and anti-poaching teams to threats instantaneously and supports real-time tactical decision-making.
