Public Safety and First Responders

Drones armed with cameras and sensor payloads have been used by military and border control agencies for decades to improve situational awareness. Commercialization now has brought more UAVs to market — making the technology more accessible to police, fire, EMS, emergency departments, and search-and-rescue operations.

These eyes in the sky can be used across public-safety services, from transmitting birds-eye video of a forest fire to incident commanders to mapping out hard-hit areas after a natural disaster. Our research looks at the drone technologies worth watching for public safety and first response operations.
