The RESCUE protocol will be customised to various humanitarian and disaster response payloads.
The wilderness can attract many of those who love the outdoors, but that also means that there is a greater chance that something could go wrong. When something does, search and rescue workers face extreme challenges including weather, difficult terrain, and remote locations.
A big advantage of using UAVs in natural disaster scenarios is the easy to attain new perspective from above the ground. Drones give us the ability to see into an area where there is an issue going on and give us a bigger picture view. The ability to view a larger picture of a situation so crews can shorten the amount of time it takes to assess a situation is invaluable.
WARP SOLAR HALE’s extended endurance will allow the search and rescue to be operated for extended hours.
The RESCUE protocol also allows it to study the disaster zones like the aftermath of the Asian Tsunami (2004) and assist with the deployment of assets to undertake rescue operations.
The Australian landscape has been recently shaped and impacted by bushfires. Its been an occurrence for thousands of years. This affects the lives of many including natural flora and fauna. Over the last 50 years, Australia has been experiencing more bushfires due to climate changes. In the past ground intelligence and communications supported the management of these fires. However, the use of satellites will further assist in identifying hotspots, prevent spread and mitigate disasters. Bush fire detection, fire-spread modelling, thermal imaging, moisture content monitoring and live streaming of situation would be further enhanced by the use of our pseudo satellite technology. More planes can be easily launched and able to provide detailed and accurate live-relay information through the use of clustered flights. The information can be directly relayed to the relevant authorities and disaster relief stations instead of the requirement of various levels of processing and handovers.
