Carrying out rescue operations in remote locations is no longer something we can only see in the cinema, Thanks to Technological Advancements, It’s Now Possible to Transport a First Aid Kit explosives Or even pick up the crowd with a drone. And in Spain we are leading these kinds of emergency solutions.
Aerocamaras, a Galician company specializing in the development of unmanned vehicles and technical solutions for this equipment, has developed a series of Leading innovation in Europe for the use of drones in rescue and security operations,
It’s 100% about technologies and development made in spain Which can be applied to professional services such as logistics, technical inspection, emergency, security, topography, etc. agriculture of accuracy or even to the audio-visual world.
These systems have a fundamental advantage: Can be applied to any unmanned vehicle As long as it can carry 5 kg of cargo and in the case of lifting reports, that they include a camera and GPS,
The company was recently able to showcase the full potential of its solutions at the UNVEX Fair in Seville. Many attendees were able to see, among other things, a demonstration of the procedure. Missing person search and location and distribution of materials first aid With cargo drones (water, food and medical supplies).
,For this rescue, we used a drone equipped with thermal and zoom cameras., which was in charge of locating the victim and sending the coordinates to the ground team and another drone responsible for delivering the first aid kit to the exact spot where the injured person was found. This UAV had a system patented by Aerocameras that allows loads to be carried for various logistics tasks. drone”, explains Borja Blanco, CTO and Director of R&D of the company.
Second, it was represented Explosives tracking and detection with these teams. attendees were able to see how thermal camera Which detects suspicious material of explosives directly from the drone. “Once the area is detected and evacuated, a vehicle equipped with a precision clamp designed by Aerocameras can proceed to detonate the explosive in the air, contacting security personnel after the explosion.” may avoid exposure, or move the load to a controlled location that it can be disabled”, explains Blanco.
Finally, a. imitate traffic accident with victimswhere the drone was implemented raising reports, To do this, a vehicle equipped with a Centimeter Precision System (RTK) was used, which captured detailed images to carry out the report. The use of UAS for this type of operation allows images to be uploaded. 3D On the cloud for report processing.
In this way drones can help in monitoring deforestation and forests after fire
The redistribution of mountains is one of the main methods of combating Climate change and avoid desertification. Therefore, it is even more important to try to heal the burned area after a fire. In this homework, Drones could be the perfect ally to help regenerate lost forests, “First, identifying the best areas for planting by mapping burned areas, and later spreading seeds to recover forest ecosystems,” says Jaime Pereira, CEO and founder of Aerocamaras.
Although forests can recover from fires on their own, the time for natural reforestation is much longer. Sometimes this can be achieved by seeds that have managed to survive underground, but the intensity of some fire It may be that in some areas it is impossible for any seeds to survive and manual planting is necessary to re-establish them. in numbers, If multiple drones are used to do this, up to 400,000 trees can be planted per day, It would be a great progress to restore burned areas after the fire. This technology, in addition to being much faster, makes it possible to use seeds in smaller quantities than traditional methods of sowing by hand, and reduces costs by 20-30%. It also makes it possible to reach land that would be difficult for workers to reach and to begin planting a month after the fire has been extinguished, when it is still risky and dangerous to people due to land conditions.
In 2018, Aerocamaras conducted a pilot test in a burned area of the Alto Tajo Natural Park, where it was able to use drones Afforestation 100,000 trees in just 5 hours,
In addition to designing and implementing solutions to be applied to these vehicles, Aerocamaras has also opted for equipment development. Thus, the company Aerohyb Hexacopter Hybrid Drone MadeWhich has a range of seven hours thanks to its combustion engine and is capable of carrying up to 8 kg of cargo, and the Lifeguard Drone, a life-saving aquatic UAV.
15 years leading the region from Galicia
The Galician company in its 15-year history has become a benchmark in the region in Spain, Europe and Latin America. A leader in development, training, sales and professional services with unmanned aircraft, it has nearly a hundred professionals and Has trained over 30,000 students at its Drone Pilot School,
