I find this latest article by the BBC to be very relevant to my drone blog and I think it proves the police are using the latest technologies to their advantage. It is also a great example of how drones can be used quickly and efficiently to perform search and rescue operations while reducing costs compared to what would have been a helicopter operation only a few years ago.
Police carry out a successful search for a missing man who was suffering of hypothermia in the freezing temperatures on Sunday the 25 of February 2018 in the early hours of the morning. They used a special imaging camera to hunt for the man’s heat signature and he is located by the police in Lincolnshire.
I am unsure of the drone model or type of camera they used, but it is a great result for all involved.
