Public Safety Drone Use Cases

Using a drone to save someone's life used to be something of a novelty. But these days, it seems like drones are being used more and more in search and rescue scenarios, and proving instrumental in those operations.Police and fire departments have also been adopting drones, and often collaborate with local search and rescue teams in using them for time-sensitive rescue operations.

The use of drones in fire services is valuable preemptively, on a live scene and post-fire. The data gathered can be used for prevention, real-time planning, or reconnaissance following an incident. With the use of various sensor packages, such as thermal infrared cameras or gas monitors, firefighters gain unprecedented levels of situational awareness.
Using imagery and video from a drone, you can plan your mission more thoroughly on the scene while keeping teams out of harm's way, whether in an urban setting or at a remote wildfire. After a fire, conduct investigation and documentation in a more detailed manner using images, video and models otherwise unattainable in many cases. Direct search and rescue operations more quickly and cover a larger area more efficiently--even at night--no matter how difficult ground access might be.
Outside of emergencies, collect data at regular intervals for fuel mitigation surveys, mapping wildlife urban interfaces, or simply enhancing pre-fire planning. In all cases, drones enable firefighters to do their job more effectively while ultimately reducing harm to themselves and potential victims.

Conduct fuel mitigation surveys at preset frequencies.

Map and update wildfire urban interface and disaster-prone areas regularly for risk mitigation and prevention of fire.

For local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, drones are becoming a necessary tool to conduct safer missions with positive outcomes. Drones can aid with crimes-in-progress, including tracking fleeing suspects, monitoring an active shooter situation more closely, aiding in high-speed vehicle chases, or zooming in on suspicious objects.
Such enhanced situational awareness helps with tactical planning of next steps, minimizes harm to first responders and potential victims, and allows gathering of intel that may otherwise go unnoticed or unchecked. Being able to collect this data acts as a true force multiplier and can keep certain situations from escalating and instead come to a swifter, successful resolution.
Often drones can be used in the place of manned helicopters, helping to lower stress on and around a scene and, of course, also reduce operating costs. For vehicular accidents, drones can map and help reconstruct the scene in a fraction of a time that a manned crew would require, thereby keeping roadway closures to a minimum. Monitor mass gatherings without having to deploy additional officers, or find (or recover) missing persons more readily are a sampling of benefits drones provide law enforcement--whether by local police departments, sheriffs offices, hazmat teams, SWAT teams, or various Federal agencies.

Aid in pursuit of fleeing suspects on foot or in vehicles, including in otherwise inaccessible areas.

Assist SWAT or police gain more comprehensive scene intelligence in real-time with 2D maps or 3D models.

Inspect up close and potentially identify hazardous materials, IEDs, possible weapons on person without putting human assets at risk.

Help in crime and vehicular accident (or homicide) scene reconstruction, documentation and investigation.

Locate lost or stolen property; identify and investigate illegal activity in remote areas.

Monitor mass gatherings to enhance crowd safety and react to incidents preemptively.

Locate missing persons or recover bodies with thermal imaging.

Keep better tabs on armed stand-off or active shooter without deploying helicopter, or keep tabs on known criminal areas to help make a bust.

Emergency situations encompass widely-unpredictable circumstances, often requiring various agencies to interact, share data, and coordinate a response. In a widespread natural disaster, such as a tornado, flood or earthquake, imagery and video from drones can give first responders a more complete picture of a scene which facilitates better planning, prioritization and deployment of various assets. This may involve identifying locations of victims, determining the optimal route to get to them, and possibly even delivering medical supplies ahead of EMS.
With drones deployed ahead of first responders, more specific preparations can be made around dealing with injuries on-site and informing local medical facilities. Drones can also protect emergency first responders in cases of responding to bomb threats, inspecting hazardous gas leaks, or keeping EMS response teams safe while they respond on an active roadway.
Whether expanding situational awareness and acting as a force multiplier over a large scene, or helping victims alongside (or ahead of) rescue personnel, drones represent a game changer for multi-agency emergency response teams in a wide array of situations.

Assess natural disaster damage and help prioritize recovery efforts.

Aid in search and rescue efforts for large-scale incidents such as earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, explosions, hurricanes, and other events.

Such operations typically involve large areas (that may expand over time) with varying terrains that have different accessibility and visibility using traditional approaches. Drones can great expand the search area and reduce the time required to cover and clear such areas. This efficiency leads to less time organizing and deploying a manned search party, and eliminates the delays around deploying manned aircraft crews and equipment. Drones in SAR operations can investigate places that searchers may not be able to access by foot or see from helicopters and planes. With thermal imagery, drones can hone in on areas of interest more efficiently by quickly seeking out heat signatures.
Using thermal imaging and gas monitoring sensors, drones can help emergency personnel coordinate search and rescue efforts in a way that minimizes harm to all parties. Certain drone sensors can also help locate victims that might not otherwise be obviously visible or accessible. This real-time data can cover a large area in a way manned assets on the ground may difficulty with, given the nature of the scene.

For oil & gas firms, improving asset management is paramount. It requires taking inventory of, inspecting, and maintaining hundreds of wellpads and tanks, plus miles of pipeline. The foremost methods for doing this are deploying manned aircraft to perform visual inspections, and sending roustabouts on trucks to inspect equipment manually and to inventory assets.
The problem: These methods are dangerous and expensive, and they typically don't provide robust data.
To combat the challenges of these traditional methods, more oil & gas firms are turning to drone-based technology. As a result, they're experiencing up to a 50% reduction in inspection costs and up to a 33% efficiency gain, along with reducing hazardous manhours.
Manned aircraft missions are inexpensive, but they're not comprehensive—which means any information coming from the missions is not structured and is seldom actionable. Manned aircraft missions that do collect adequate data can become prohibitively expensive, making it difficult to keep tabs on all of your assets frequently enough to catch damage before it leads to failure. And beyond cost, flying helicopters is risky due to rugged terrain, weather events, and noncompliant aircraft out in the oilfield.
For oil and gas firms that need to manage infrastructure over miles of terrain, JOUAV® provides a flexible, cost-effective, and data-intensive way to inspect assets.By incorporating data collection, processing, and reporting into a streamlined, end-to-end drone-based solution, we’ve made it easier to start using drones. You'll replace dangerous manned aircraft inspections with drone deployments; unstructured, unactionable data with integrated data delivered directly to your systems of record; hours of tedious image review with machine intelligence; and data overload with a focused system of reporting. More importantly, your analysts can use high-resolution remote sensing to pinpoint the type and extent of damage more accurately than a visual inspection can. Plus, we've built our software to integrate with your enterprise data management systems, so you can leverage aerial intelligence across the entire oil and gas supply chain lifecycle, from the selection of future equipment sites to the decommissioning of assets.

Owners can use data to manage assets over a lifetime, selecting operators and materials that consistently achieve the best results.

Roustabouts are able to inspect miles of pipeline in a single deployment.

Well tenders eliminate drives between pads, as well as hazardous hours spent on the pads themselves.

Maintenance directors reduce errors, omissions, and the time it takes to receive and analyze asset performance data.

Directors of vegetation can easily monitor right of ways for encroachment.

Directors of construction are able to assess sites before bids and builds.

Aviation directors reduce the risk of missions flown throughout their organizations.
