Programme U.T.SEC Conference 2018
Researching fire departments – from research to practical application
The use of UAV in emergency response is subject of research for many years. The fire department Dortmund takes part in various projects with the aim to improve the suitability of the developed solutions. Two projects depict examples of how the use of the research results can occur in actual rescue apliances.
Public Safety Organisations (German abbrev: BOS) are facing different challenges. In certain complex emergency scenarios, the use of UAV is a valuable contribution to the emergency response. However, many of these solutions are still in the research and development stage, integration into the BOS concepts is sluggish. Through active participation in research projects it is possible for fire departments to be directly involved in the development and set requirements accordingly to their needs. Through this cooperation between fire departments and researchers, several projects have already been successfully completed and results have been incorporated into emergency response. The EU-project TRADR and the german-french project ANCHORS depict this.
