The Eurecat Unmanned Aerial Vehicle is a multirotor system that has been optimized for search and rescue (SAR) operations (see presentation video here )

A highly integrated SAR payload has been carefully designed to support international SAR teams in their interventions. The payload includes a visible and thermal imagers, providing enhanced awareness in the field and real-time victim detection, tracking and geolocalization. It also offers fast mapping capabilities in several frequency bands (RGB, grayscale, thermal) and orientations, all in one single flight, avoiding multiple missions over the same area. Automatic collision detection, real time target tracking and the possibility to carry and deliver a survival kit up to 1kg complements the advanced features of this state-of-the-art robotics tool.

The system is entirely owned by Eurecat Technology Centre (Barcelona, Spain).
