From sUAS News:
LAS, a drone manufacturer, operator and services provider, plays an important role in Ecuador and the region when a natural disaster strikes. “With ALAS, we are able to simultaneously navigate our fleet of drones across different regions in a safe and efficient manner and, therefore, provide better services in scenarios such as the recent earthquake”, he continued. Given the recent occurrence of a severe 7.8 magnitude earthquake in April this year, affecting the regions of Manta, Pedernales and Portoviejo in Ecuador and accounting for more than 600 casualties, the use of UAVs for the inspection of disaster sites will contribute significantly to future disaster relief work.
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
