SEARCH & RESCUE
Search and Rescue is an activity where speed could be make all the difference in saving a life. The DJI Zenmuse XT thermal camera, developed in collaboration with thermal imaging experts FLIR, provides rescuers with an easily deployable aerial thermal imaging system that dramatically accelerates the search for missing people by highlighting thermal signatures and can even see through foliage.
Paired with the DJI Matrice 100, the Zenmuse XT provides a class leading flight time of 30 minutes. This allows it to cover vast areas in a single flight, searching more area than any one group of people would be capable of. Additionally, the Matrice 100 provides access to the DJI SDK, where dedicated search and rescue tools such as search patterns and full autopilot controls can be developed.
Connected to the DJI Inspire, the XT becomes a rapid launch aerial system. Able to go from packed away to in the air in just 3 minutes, it is ideal for urgent situations that need an eye in the sky as quickly as possible.
The DJI Phantom 3 allows firefighters to quickly and effectively scout out dangerous fires, observe and monitor a large blaze and the surrounding area and more.
Using either a Zenmuse X3 or Zenmuse X5 camera, fire teams can evaluate a blaze to determine its route and rate of travel and any structures or areas at particular risk. This allows fire chiefs on the ground to send their teams exactly where they are needed.
By mounting the DJI Zenmuse XT onto the DJI Inspire 1 firefighters can leverage thermal imaging to see through thick smoke, allowing them to identify particular hot points and the source of the fire.
Paired with a Matrice 100, firefighters benefit from extended flight times, allowing for more careful monitoring. All of these technologies provide firefighters with valuable information to help them make the right decisions as quickly as possible.
An aerial view following a disaster can help save lives, beyond their uses as search and rescue platforms. In the hours immediately following a disaster, the use of UAVs can help determine the areas needing urgent support, allowing government services and aid agencies do deploy their teams and resources where they can make the biggest impact.
As rescue slowly moves to recovery, aerial systems can be used to create 3D maps, models and orthomosaics that illustrate exactly where and to what extent an area has been damaged. This information helps governments repair and rebuild communities damaged by natural disasters. If maps are created before a disaster, they may even allow people to re-create the area exactly.
LAW & ENFORCEMENT
Modern police departments are facing numerous challenges, from budget cuts to increasingly sophisticated criminals. Tactical situations have also risen in complexity, along with public expectations to maintain safety for all citizens. Within this environment, modern police forces must remain nimble and responsive in the highly dynamic situations they face.
Small UAVs that can fit in any police vehicle give law enforcement teams broad situational awareness, allowing them to formulate an appropriate response in even complex and testing environments. Threat detection is fundamental to saving the lives of officers and protecting civilians when out in the field. With a UAV in each car, every officer can benefit from their own police helicopter, giving all officers the protection of an aerial surveillance system.
