Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are enabling rescue workers boost their operations widely. Search times can be significantly reduced while limiting potential risk to the party being rescued as well as rescuers. There are many options and benefits to using drones for search and rescue:
Drones are equipped with multiple features to help capture key data on building sites, including cameras, GPS units, thermal sensors, and infrared sensors.
Some advantages they have over other methods include quick deployment, lower costs, better image resolution, improved situational awareness, and payload versatility.
- Cheap to maintain and run
- Drones Cover More Area than Ground Teams
- Safer than Manned Assets
- An Aerial View Provides Better Visibility of a Search Area
- Adapt with Technology as New Payloads Are Available
Search and Rescue Drones
There’s no doubt drones have revolutionized the way search and rescue operations are executed. Search and Resue drones (UAVs) can provide real-time visual information and data. UAVs can provide situational awareness over a large area quickly, reducing the time and the number of searchers required to locate and rescue an injured or lost person, greatly reducing the cost and risks of search and rescue missions. The growth in aerial robotics has led to their ubiquitous presence in various fields-urban search and rescue (USAR)
Drone technology has become a powerful tool in public safety. Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are being used to help save lives in response to many situations, including search and rescue missions, law enforcement crime scenes and emergency response to natural disasters like fires or other dangerous scenarios.Tal to us for the following drone solutions in construction industry:
UAS with thermal cameras can be used during nighttime conditions when temperatures are low enough to make infrared radiation detectable by the drone’s sensor. SAR missions generally seek to rescue humans or other warm blooded life forms. This equipment is being used to reduce cost and increase safety and efficiency in construction and energy inspection and the inspection of critical infrastructures like bridges, power lines, wind turbines, solar farms, roof and pipeline inspections, and more.
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can provide real-time visual information and data in the aftermath of natural disasters. UAVs can provide situational awareness over a large area quickly, reducing the time and the number of searchers required to locate and rescue an injured or lost person, greatly reducing the cost and risks of search and rescue missions.
