How was it done before drones?

Before the introduction of drones, the team faced challenges such as limited situational awareness, increased risks to search teams during operations, with searches often taking significantly longer.

The introduction of the DJI Matrice 30T drone transformed the way Kent Search and Rescue operate

Faster Response

The ability to deploy the drone in under a minute and cover vast areas quickly. Using thermal imagery, the drone can pinpoint hotspots, guiding teams for targeted efforts, and ensuring efficient resource allocation.

Enhanced Coverage

The drone's capabilities allow it to cover more ground efficiently. The drone's infrared camera can detect heat signatures, allowing first-responders to see through smoke filled environments and dense vegetation.

Improved Situational Awareness

Real-time aerial footage provides teams with a comprehensive view of the situation so ground teams can communicate their location accurately, even in conditions with zero visibility.

See the Invisible

The drone's infrared camera can see through obstacles, like smoke, thick forestry, and detect hotspots in fires, even identifying risks of explosions.

“When someone goes missing it becomes a time critical event, so anything that we can do to reduce search time or improve efficiency is worth looking into. As a team we are constantly looking at emerging technologies and how they might integrate into the work we do.”

What Solution Was Used?

The DJI Matrice 30 Thermal drone is renowned for its balance between flight time, ease of deployment, and superior image quality. It’s designed to operate in various weather and environmental conditions, making it a reliable platform for critical missions.

“We have had our current M30T since August 2022, and whilst we have tried various drones since our first Phantom 3, the M30T is by far the best drone we have had.”
