Drone Search and Rescue FAQ

Do your drones have night-time search capabilities?

Yes, our drones are equipped with both infrared and daylight cameras. This technology allows us to detect heat signatures, making it possible to identify people or animals even in complete darkness. This capability significantly enhances our search efforts during night-time or low-visibility conditions.

What is the operational range of your drones?

The operational range of our drones varies based on the specific model and configuration used. Generally, our drones can cover several kilometres from the takeoff point. We strategically deploy our drones to maximize coverage while adhering to safety and regulatory standards.

What are the limitations of drone technology in search and rescue?

Drones, while highly effective in SAR situations, do have limitations. Weather conditions such as heavy rain, snow, or strong winds can affect their ability to fly or capture clear imagery. Additionally, battery life determines the duration a drone can stay airborne, necessitating periodic returns for battery swaps during extended operations.
