UAV Search And Rescue
Fife Lake Drone 6
In a typical scenario, UAVs will be deployed in an area of interest, perform sensory operations to collect evidence of the presence of a victim, and report their collected information to a remote ground station or rescue team. Search and rescue operations are often characterized by a similar set of constraints: time is critical and any delay can result in dramatic consequences – potentially human losses; operational environments are unfriendly, e.g. disaster scenes, forests, etc. Using Unmanned Aerial
Vehicles (UAVs) can provide a critical support to search and rescue operations. UAVs are agile, fast, can exhibit autonomous behaviours and hence perform operations hard to execute by human operators, at low operating costs.
