GlobalMedic’s RescUAV Program harnesses advanced technology for rapid data collection in the aftermath of disasters. Our dedicated team employs Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to gather crucial information in disaster-stricken areas. These UAVs play a pivotal role in providing situational awareness, emergency mapping, and facilitating search and rescue efforts.
Situational Awareness holds paramount importance in the wake of disasters. Our specialized teams relay real-time information to ground responders. This aids in the identification of hazards, assessing damaged infrastructure, and pinpointing challenges in reaching affected communities. This real-time data empowers responders to expedite aid delivery to those most in need.
Through Emergency Mapping operations, we generate detailed real-time 3D maps. These maps yield invaluable insights applicable in both emergency and non-emergency contexts. By detailing inaccessible roads, gauging agricultural impacts, and guiding community rebuilding, this data becomes a powerful resource. We share all our data products—including images, orthomosaics, and analyses—within the humanitarian sector, local authorities, and governments. This open-source approach maximizes the impact of our efforts.
In Search & Rescue operations, our team employs aerial imagery to assess disaster-affected structures. By utilizing thermal imagery, we locate survivors. Ground-penetrating radar technology detects signs of life beneath collapsed buildings.
In the aftermath of a disaster, access routes are frequently obstructed. This complicates the distribution of critical supplies. UAVs offer a potential solution by facilitating aid delivery to isolated regions. This helps in saving lives. With time, we aspire to explore UAV technology’s potential for delivering high-value and lightweight aid. This includes items such as vaccines and life-saving medical supplies to disaster-hit zones.
RescUAV actively forms technology alliances with innovative companies and organizations committed to frontline humanitarian aid. Partnerships with industry leaders enable us to create a testing ground, generate exposure, and produce case studies unique to our collaboration.
