Unmanned aircraft systems platform to support situation assessment for first responders
In case of a disaster, the rapid, effective and efficient response of first responders is crucial for saving lives. Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) technology can aid emergency management in complementing existing systems used in first response missions. The EU-funded RESPONDRONE project aims at developing a multi-UAS platform for first responders to enhance their situation awareness. The fleet of UAS will provide enhanced capabilities to support assessment missions, search and rescue operations, as well as forest fire fighting by simplifying operations for first responders and thus making first response operations more efficient. The platform will be designed to provide relevant information in real-time to all involved stakeholders using a cloud-based system, supporting on-time decision making and operations management.
