Save, easy, and efficient inspections

All flights that are executed are mandatory to be logged. Before, DDC did all of this with paper. This came with quite some challenges. - It’s expensive to do it this way. All the paper has to be printed, and you need space to store this - A piece of paper is easy to lose - It’s hard to find one specific flight when you have so much paper, for one chimney inspection it can take 4 flights. - It’s hard to share data. If you, for example, have an incident it’s hard to share it with the ILT (CAA) when everything is on paper - Not all the data was fully coordinated. Coordinating information like the pilot, payload, coordinates etc. in one place was impossible. It had to be stored at 3 different places.

Be at the incident before arriving

When an incident happens, every second counts. The sooner you have eyes on sight, the sooner you can get an overview of the severity of the situation. While the fire department is getting ready to leave, the drone can be sent in advance and create immediate situational awareness. While this sounds great in theory, it had to be tested to prove drones are of added benefit to their workflow.

Making search and rescue missions more efficient
Read more
Search and rescue operations of the KNRM are carried out by land and sea. But not yet from the air. The KNRM currently receives air support from the coastguard in the event of major incidents and/or under complex circumstances. However, the KNRM is often the first in the vicinity of the incident. The search and rescue is then initiated from the lifeboat or coastal rescue vehicle. However, in many cases, air support can identify a drowning person or missing person more quickly, potentially saving lives. For this reason, KNRM has set up a test period for the year 2022 to see what added value drones can have in search and rescue.
