In search and rescue operations, every second counts. with drone technology, crews can develop a distinct advantage by gaining a rapid aerial overview. In the past, these operations have been hindered by treacherous conditions and a lack of access, as well as the need to deploy large, scattered teams.

In search and rescue operations, drones carrying high-tech imaging systems are now able to detect thermal movement, even in dense vegetation. Drones can also be rapidly deployed and with increasing flight times, allow for comprehensive coverage of large areas.

In natural disasters from bush fires to floods, drones provide better access to dangerous areas, enabling crews to assess damage and risk and make critical decisions quickly.

By providing aerial views and 3D maps of land and water masses, drones also provide rapid assessments of disaster areas to facilitate the deployment of resources by aid agencies.
