Search and rescue with drones

In search and rescue situations, every second counts. This may be preventive risk analysis, or on the ground at fires, accidents and natural disasters.

The use of UAVs brings substantial and invaluable advantages: they can be deployed more quickly than manned support from the air, provide a better and quicker overview from above, reduce the danger to emergency services, and special sensors enable toxicity and radiation to be measured in real time, thereby enabling operations controllers to make quicker decisions about suitable relief efforts.

Search for missing persons: Thermal imaging cameras mounted on UAVs facilitate searches for missing persons following accidents or disasters. Thermal imaging cameras are particularly useful in enabling safe and rapid searches following avalanches and locating persons buried in their path.

Snowdrifts can be deliberately dislodged using drones, aiding efficient avalanche protection.

Additional applications:

  • forest fires: unmanned aerial systems can approach the source of the fire at extremely close proximity, enabling suitable measures to be taken more easily
  • accidents/disasters
  • natural disasters (distribution of leaflets during evacuations, information to groups of people)
  • landslides
  • flooding, tsunami monitoring
  • border protection
  • evidence gathering (accident analysis, determining the extent of damage and damage compensation).
