Search and rescue Drones

First responders are using DJI’s and other aerial solutions to aid in search and rescue missions. Deployed at land or sea, drones can efficiently scan vast areas and help pinpoint individuals in distress thanks to high-resolution digital and thermal sensors.

Search & Rescue

Efficiently scan vast areas and pinpoint missing individuals thanks to high-resolution digital and thermal cameras


Fly over affected areas, document damage to infrastructure and property, and optimize relief efforts

Traditional Challenges For Search & Rescue

  • Rescue missions pose inherent dangers to responders, which can be compounded by incomplete situational information
  • Rescue teams can be spread thin when target areas are vast and terrain is demanding
  • Night time and low-light conditions hinder search efforts, significantly complicating rescue missions

How Drones Support Search & Rescue

  • Scan wide areas and identify threats to victims and responders with high-resolution aerial imagery
  • Elevate responders’ perspective and bring search and rescue to new levels of efficiency
  • At night, or in low-light conditions, leverage thermal sensors to locate missing persons who might otherwise be overlooked
