Periodic Reporting for period 1 - K.A.R.S. (ANTIROTATION SYSTEM FOR HELIRESCUE)
Reporting period: 2017-06-01 to 2017-09-30
The aim of the K.A.R.S. project is to develop an innovative device that revolutionises helirescue operations. Thanks to a new electronic system that detects the rotation of the winched stretcher, an aerodynamic device can immediately stop the rotation induced by the air flow generated by the helicopter rotors.
The device is applied by installing a simple bracket on any kind of helicopter rescue stretcher and adopting it will allow using a helicopter in rescue operations that would otherwise be impossible. The resulting quicker response time will improve the survival rate of the victim.
Different typologies of risks have been identified, analysed, ranked, and, for each of them, a mitigation measure has been proposed.
The business planning has allowed to define the projections in terms of revenues and net-profit, which appear to be positive.
We conclude this phase of project with the confidence that we can go on with its development, having a good probability of success.
