The Use of UAV's for Search and Rescue Operations

Modern public services are nowadays capable of conducting complex operations in case of various natural or man-made hazards. In last decades, the responsibilities of the fire services have been significantly extended from ‘ordinary’ fire-fighting to complex operations including technical rescue, but also chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear rescue. Therefore this crucial public service is being constantly equipped with the newest and the most efficient solutions aiming at optimization of their primary activity, which saves victims lives. Thanks to International Search and Rescue Advisory Group (INSARAG) guidelines, activities of certified heavy urban search and rescue groups (HUSAR) are based on solid foundations: knowledge and experience gained during historical events in last decades. However, rapid technological progress might be beneficial. The article describes the MOBNET system, that is currently under development. There was a research work conducted to gather end-user requirements in purpose to create a tailor-made solution supporting traditional activities of USAR teams. The target group of the system has been extended, as other public services might benefit from the system implementation as well. The system will use combined DCT – EGNSS technology to track victims.
