The organisers of The Emergency Services Show have announced two new features at this year’s event: the SkyBound Rescuer Drone Seminar and a SkyBound Rescuer Drone Zone (sponsored by SOARIZON by Thales). The new seminar and exhibition zone are designed to foster drone development for the Emergency Services through research and discussion.
“New and emerging drone technologies are seducing public safety organisations with the promise of reducing search times, improving situational awareness, enhancing team safety, reducing costs or even the potential for delivering medical supplies ahead of rescue teams,” explained Gemma Alcock, founder and CEO of Skybound Rescuer. “Drones are saving lives faster, safer and cheaper than ever before. That said, drones are still far from fulfilling their full potential. The best is yet to come.”
The Emergency Services Show’s event director David Brown added: “Drones have a valuable role to play in supporting and enhancing the work of all our Emergency Services. The addition of the Drone Zone makes for a brilliant showcase to encourage enhanced operational efficiency and effectiveness alongside other emerging technologies present at the show such as the latest vehicles, communication solutions, medical and firefighting equipment, protective clothing, training technology and much more.”
The SkyBound Rescuer Drone Seminar and a SkyBound Rescuer Drone Zone will help Emergency Services and public safety professionals to make the best tactical and strategic use of drone technology. Attendees are expected to come from every part of the Emergency Services community including the police, fire and ambulance services.
The SkyBound Rescuer Drone Seminar Day on Thursday 19 September will share the latest innovative thinking, reveal what lessons can be learned from experience, fully explore what’s possible today and equip visitors with the strategic and tactical knowledge to apply to future drone operations. The seminar day opens with a thought-provoking presentation on Public Safety Drones by internationally renowned speaker Charles Werner (a pioneer of drones in public safety across the US). This will be followed by five research-driven presentations covering the latest studies in the field of drones for public safety in the UK and internationally. These will cover:
*Drone Procedures Optimisation
*Optimising the Probability of Detection for an Aerial Search by Using ViDAR
*Using Artificial Intelligence and Drones to Detect Aggressive Behaviour and Weapons in Crowds
*Using Autonomous Beyond Visual Line of Sight Drones for First Response
*Drone Search Research Trials
The Emergency Services Show is the UK’s largest specialist event dedicated to the Emergency Services and a showcase for emerging technologies. It takes place at the NEC in Birmingham on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 September.
