The ResponDrone project will hold its final conference in Portugal

The meeting will include hands-on demonstrations of the ResponDrone situational awareness system. The platform was featured last month in Spain in simulated fire and search and rescue scenarios

OPORTO, Portugal, April 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The International Community ResponDrone project will hold its closing conference from April 26 to 28, 2022 at Porto, Portugal in which he will summarize the work carried out over the past three years to develop and apply a fleet of drones in emergency situations, providing critical information and communication services to first responders.

The conference will include hands-on demonstrations of the various components of the ResponDrone system and discussions on future ways it will be used by first responders, as well as a first look at videos created from the final demonstration.

the ResponDrone system provides accurate location information to first responders, especially for infrastructure, when called upon to respond to a fire, flood, or other natural disaster.

In March, the ResponDrone partners held their final demonstration and test at the Atlas Flight test center in the southern province of Jaen Spain.

The demonstrations conducted fire simulations and search and rescue scenarios. The ResponDrone platform worked well, showing how having clear situational awareness through a centralized command interface and mobile apps helps build situational awareness. Additionally, the demonstration showed how multiple drones, carrying different types of payloads, can safely fly at the same time using the platform.

“After three years of intensive work, disrupted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we can finally meet again in person with all partners,” said the ResponDrone project coordinator. Max Frederic of German Aerospace Center (DLR).

“The Port This meeting will allow us to share the results with all partners and plan how to continue the great work done and how it should be presented. »

The ResponDrone system simplifies and accelerates situation assessment, information sharing, decision making and operations management for first responders. It delivers high-quality information to any involved control center via a web-based cloud platform, accessible and operated from a remote location.
