INTELLIGENT DRONES FOR SEARCH & RESCUE
SmartSAR is a fast and efficient approach to search and rescue at sea!
We provide better visibility and overview of the sea.
We reduce stressful and monotonous search time.
We increase chances of finding objects on the sea surfacea.
Traditional SAR operations depend on crew endurance
Traditional maritime SAR operations are very dependent of a ship’s tight crew and their ability to stay alert and focused during the search that often lasts for hours.
The weather is often less than favorable, the overview of the sea from the deck of a ship is limited and the manual search is both monotonous and exhausting.
The ship’s crew will under such demanding conditions suffer from fatigue over time which inevitably leads to reduced attention.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and automation helps to find survivors at sea
The Smart-SAR UAVs have a perfect overview of the sea.
With the use of multiple cameras and AI-based anomaly detection engine, the UAV automatically search and detect objects of interest which are then reported back to the operator on the rescue boat.
AutomatedAutomates the exhausting search, while keeping the operator on the loop.
SmartSAR is amongst the TOP 10 finalists in the EU #MyGalileoDrone competition.
SmartSAR has made it to the TOP 10 out of 190 submissions, 346 registered teams and 470 registered applicants!
The aim of the contest is to design, develop, test and prepare for commercial launch a drone-based application and/or service able to provide a position and/or time fix by using Galileo-enabled receiver.
The European GNSS is a key enabling technology for drones, robust positioning and precise timing and synchronization capabilities offered by Galileo and EGNOS are real added values that facilitate the integration of drones into non-segregated airspace and the U-space.
