ADU 01280: How can drones aid and improve disaster relief missions?

Today’s episode is brought to you by PROPS programs. Props is Drone U’s exclusive offering to give organizations the ability to distribute UAV training to pilots effectively and efficiently. PROPS allows the leader of a drone program, to assign the appropriate courses according to your program’s needs and timeframes. And perhaps more importantly, it allows you as the program leader to monitor the progress of each pilot within one convenient platform. Our PROPS program has a special course on a host of domains including mapping, public safety and our exclusive Don’t Crash courses.

Today’s show is on disaster relief and how drones can aid disaster missions. As we see the devastating damage from Hurricanes in recent times, we wanted to talk about drone missions and technology that can greatly aid and improve relief efforts in impacted areas and how drone pilots can effectively use drone missions during relief efforts.

We first talk about the drone missions that are commonly used during relief efforts and why these missions are important to relief efforts. We discuss the common deliverables from these missions and how pilots can be prepared to deploy and complete successful missions in an efficient fashion. We also discuss other aspects of drone use in relief efforts specifically on live feeds and its implications.

In today’s show we also discuss the frequently debated topics of using Fixed wing UAV vs Multi rotor drones in carrying out relief efforts over large areas. We also touch upon another important aspects of drone flight – software and discuss the use of different software packages for rescue missions.

Lastly we talk about how companies operating in public safety can monetize their efforts better from state and federal agencies that includes funding for rescue missions.

Tune in today to learn comprehensively about flying and perfecting rescue missions for disaster relief.
