The CURSOR Project

Coordinated Use of miniaturised Robotic equipment and advanced Sensors for search and rescue OpeRations



CURSOR – Accelerating Search and Rescue operations

A new European research initiative will develop a CURSOR Search and Rescue Kit using drones, miniaturised robotic equipment, and advanced sensors reducing time for detection and rescue of victims trapped under debris while increasing the personal safety of the SaR teams








CURSOR aims to meet the first responders' needs

In the face of natural or man-made disaster, urban search and rescue teams and other first responders like police, medical units or civil protection race against the clock to locate survivors within the critical 72 golden hours timeframe, often at their own peril due to the presence of instable structures or hazardous environments.

In order to speed up the detection of survivors trapped in collapsed buildings and to improve working conditions for the first responders, the CURSOR project will devise novel technologies using drones, miniaturised robotic equipment and advanced sensors.










CURSOR is closely collaborating with first responders and solution providers

CURSOR’s consortium has formed a unique internal on-going collaboration between leading SaR first responders and top notch solution providers making sure that the CURSOR SaR Kit will meet the functional and operational needs of the users on the field.

The consortium will be supported by leading experts as part of the First Responders Board.
