The EU-funded ResponDrone Project has entered a new and more advanced phase, with a practical, hands-on learning session for first responders, held in Corte, Corsica.
The UAV competition aims to encourage participants to seek new solutions to increase the effectiveness of emergency measures for rescuers and first responders using UAVs.
When it comes to natural disaster management, and the need to provide fast and effective support to first responders tasked with saving lives and curbing the potential damage to the environment, UAVs have a clear edge over other, existing platforms.
Two members of the ResponDrone project, coordinator Max Friedrich from DLR and expert team member Prof. Arthur Khalatyan from AUA attended the kick-off meeting of the new EU Horizon 2020 project INGENIOUS.
ECPA 2019 provided ResponDrone with an excellent opportunity to showcase the relevance to the field of agriculture of the project's unique technological approach to improving the speed and effectiveness of first responders to emergencies.
At the conference, Alpha’s CEO Eric Freeman, provided a presentation on the use of its autonomous UAV helicopter to deliver medical and humanitarian aid supplies to precision drop locations.
