Victim / Lost Persons Search

Drones provide an aerial vantage point to help cover large amounts of ground. When used with low light or infrared cameras, the drone can see people in low light and other low visibility scenarios.

Payload / Rescue Line Delivery

Throwing a rescue line to a victim in fast moving water or stuck in a ravine is a difficult task, but a drone can quickly and accurately tow a line. Similarly, drones can be used to deliver tools to rescuers in hard to reach places.

Aerial Scene Lighting

Nighttime search and rescue operations are often hampered by the darkness. A SAR drone equipped with special lighting can illuminate large areas from the air to help rescuers locate and navigate.

Post Disaster Survey

Large scale disasters often disrupt the infrastructure of a region. A post disaster survey using drones can give rescuers the information they need to find open roads and locate survivors.

Search and Rescue Payload / Optics

Our carefully curated, best-in-class choices for payloads and optics can address your search and rescue needs ranging from night time operation to long range rescues. Review each of the payload and optics options before proceeding to the drones section where you can select a drone that will be compatible with your payload and optics choices.

For search and rescue drones, selecting a model revolves around optics, payloads and flight times. You want to select the model that will support the type of optics or payloads you plan to carry. For example, if you plan to tow rescue lines or carry heavy payloads, you would be best served by selecting a larger heavy-lift model. Similarly, running infrared or dual eo/ir payloads will require a specific model that is compatible with those advanced optics.
