The A Global Market Research on the Available ‘Drone Technology’, and Its Employment for ‘Search and Rescue’ (SAR) Report has been published. It provides updated in 2018 year analysis of industries from Automotive and Transport, Commercial Aerospace, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) – Drones Markets.
This paper has been developed keeping in mind, readers having a basic understanding of the terms SAR, drones and related subjects. It has been divided into five sections to instill concepts in a systematic and logical manner. Material in the form of text and images have been included to provide an adequate understanding about aerial system types, unmanned airborne vehicles and it's related technologies.
Extensive numeric data and graphs have been used for comparing renowned civil, commercial & industrial application drones in establishing their suitability for a SAR mission. An ideal SAR scenario is presented for evaluating the top ranked drones based on their existing level of autonomy, intelligence and available features for carrying out a SAR mission independently.
A title by the name New Product Introduction (NPI) has been included for UAV development, that lists over fifteen new SAR scenarios for which drones can be developed. The paper serves as a comprehensive guide in the selection and development of an Aerial Drone for SAR applications.
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL: 'TOP 17 DRONES COMPARISON', a customizable excel with data plots and over 400 parameters for platform comparison.
