Main benefits for rescue services

Search and rescue

Efficiently scan large areas and locate missing persons with high-resolution digital and thermal cameras

Disaster response

Fly over affected areas, document damage to infrastructure and property, and streamline relief efforts

Search and rescue

Traditional Search and Rescue Challenges

  • Rescue missions pose inherent dangers to rescuers, which can be compounded by incomplete situational information
  • Rescue teams can be dispersed when the target areas are large and the terrain is challenging
  • Night and low-light conditions hamper search efforts, greatly complicating rescue missions

How drones support search and rescue

  • Scan large areas and identify threats to victims and rescuers with high-resolution aerial images
  • Improve rescuers' perspective and take search and rescue to new levels of efficiency
  • At night, or in low light conditions, take advantage of thermal sensors to locate missing persons who might otherwise be overlooked

Disaster response


Traditional challenges in disaster response

  • In the aftermath of disaster, when every moment matters, complicated terrain and environments can delay response times
  • Disaster areas pose a danger to victims and rescue teams that can be exacerbated by a lack of clear information and communication
  • Relief efforts and target prioritization can be hampered by an incomplete perspective on the affected region

How drones help in disaster response

  • Fly over obstacles and dangers, immediately gain the power of perspective and start distributing relief
  • An aerial corner can help guide teams to the ground, facilitate communications, and synchronize rescue efforts
  • Rapid 2D and 3D modeling of affected areas can produce maps that can be used to guide relief efforts
