Search and Rescue

Dufferin UAV has been working to learn how Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) can be applied to Search and Rescue and believes a UAV is invaluable to a SAR mission.

UAVs have been used for SAR operations in various places around the world, but mostly on an ad-hoc, or as needed, basis. They have proven themselves, in a lot of situations, to be extremely effective in getting to places others cannot and allowing ground crew to assess the situation and report much faster than using traditional methods. This does not mean that a UAV can replace true SAR, it is just a great tool to add to the mission.
