Counter-terrorism units are increasingly using drones for improved security measures at large-scale events. Drone facial recognition technology allows large crowds to be scanned for suspicious activity more accurately and discreetly, whilst enabling costs to be cut on physical manpower and these resources to be applied elsewhere. Police forces can also map suspects in pursuit, proving more accurate and less expensive than a helicopter. Fire rescue services use thermal imaging drones to locate victims trapped in buildings and unstable structures, so they can target them more accurately for quick rescue.
UAV technology proved a vital tool in the humanitarian efforts following 2017’s international disasters including Hurricane Harvey (Houston, USA) and Hurricane Irma (USA & Caribbean), aiding search & rescue and distributing medical supplies, ropes and life jackets to people in hard-to-reach areas. They also play an important role in post-disaster assessment of damage to local infrastructure, as well as being used to extinguish and assess wildfires and wildfire rescue in countries such as Australia, Africa and USA.
Many countries are now benefiting from drones as a safer, faster solution to search & rescue operations. Using thermal mapping technology, they can locate people in remote areas and adverse weather conditions more efficiently than previous physical methods allow. They can then provide temporary relief efforts until emergency services reach the target for rescue, increasing their chances of survival.
