Evaluate a Serious Disaster
Unmanned aerial systems (UAS, referred to here as “drones”) empower emergency managers to evaluate a serious disaster situation with the use of a drone, potentially complementing the information they have from personnel. In other circumstances, the use of drones prevents personnel from entering a potentially hazardous scene before emergency managers understand exactly what they are dealing with. As such, fire departments, hazardous materials teams, search and rescue teams, and police departments can use drones, with clever uses (e.g., infrared imaging) depending on the nature of the emergency.
Here at TCP Skynet, we’re strong proponents of community-centered approaches to humanitarian UASs. To be sure, community engagement is key when it comes to the ethical and responsible use of UASs for disaster response, and sharing aerial imagery with local stakeholders is very important.
Is it Safe?
Here at TCP Skynet safety is our number one priority. Stringent safety protocols and top tier technology make TCP Skynet custom unmanned aerial systems extremely safe. Our UAS's have a number of Fail-Safe features built-in: if radio signal is lost, on board GPS and Autopilot automatically guides the UAS back to the take off location. If one of the motors fails, multi-rotor configuration allows for the rest of the motors to land the aircraft safely. Our pilots follows strict protocols and have years of experience flying drone/UAV's.
