Lab Test°5 successfully demonstrated how the CURSOR drone fleet can assist Search and Rescue Operations
On 22 and 23 of April 2021 several tests on five defined piles of different construction material were carried out with the CURSOR drone fleet at the Proving Ground Felixdorf of the Austrian Armed Forces. The results showed that the drone fleet can indeed assist First Responders in their difficult and dangerous Search and Rescue tasks of finding buried victims by lessening the health risks to First Responders (e.g. eliminating having to climb up treacherous rubble piles), shortening the time for finding victims, and occurring lower operational costs than with the deployment of helicopters. Test results obtained, together with their evaluation performed by First Responders, will serve as feedback for further optimization of the drone fleet in the future.
