Notos drones can eliminate the safety risks that pilots face when fighting forest fires while increasing the effectiveness of intervention.
Due to the fact that Notos drones are long endurance gliders, they can be deployed to provide a higher degree of situational awareness. Outfitted with communication systems, the drones have the added benefit of being able to sustain continuous and consistent contact between the command center and firefighters on the ground.
Due to the fact that Notos drones are modeled after a glider design, they do not require a motor for power. This means that in addition to having increased endurance, Notos drones are extremely silent.
As a result, Notos drones are covert and unobtrusive, making them are ideal for missions which require constant close monitoring of wildlife.
The hours following a natural disaster are particularly crucial to first response teams providing aid to affected populations. Effective deployment of aid could mean the difference between life and death, particularly in situations where changes are frequent and unpredictable.
Due to their extended endurance and range, Notos drones are able to reach remote locations with ease, allowing them to provide constant aerial data to response teams, increasing the safety and effectiveness of aid.
In the development of beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) systems, communication between the UAVs and the ground control station (GCS) is of critical importance.
The use of a communication relay system provides a practical way to solve these problems, improving the performance of UAV communication in BLOS and cross-obstacle operations.
