RescUAV

    OVERVIEW    

  OVERVIEW  

When disaster strikes it is a race against time. Better information is needed to help rescuers save lives. This is the need that RescUAV was created to meet.

GlobalMedic’s RescUAV project is using innovation to solve this problem. Through UAV technology, we gather better information and we do it faster. It is used to make aid delivery more efficient, by providing:

Providing aerial imagery of disaster affected buildings, using thermal imagery to locate survivors, and using Ground Penetrating Radar technology to scan collapsed buildings and detect signs of human life beneath the rubble.

This response allows rescue teams to work faster and more effectively to save lives.

Relaying information in real-time to responders on the ground to identify hazards, damaged infrastructure, and access issues to reaching communities in need. This allows responders to deliver aid as quickly as possible to those who are in the greatest need.

Producing detailed 3-D maps in real-time to provide invaluable data in both emergency and non-emergency settings. This precise data can tell us exactly what roads are inaccessible, how agriculture has been affected, and how to start rebuilding communities.

Roads and footpaths are often blocked or destroyed for long periods of time following a disaster like an earthquake or major storm. Getting critical medical supplies, for example, into regions that are cut-off by all standard means can be a major problem. UAV’s provide a possible solution to save lives in those areas. Over time we hope to explore the potential of using UAV technology to deliver high value-to-weight ratio aid such as vaccines and other life-saving medical supplies to disaster affected areas.
