AIRT is a leading non-profit organisation supporting both Drones For Good and DRONERESPONDERS, the world’s fastest-growing program which supports the use of UAS for global public safety and emergency services.
Parrot will support the disaster response and humanitarian missions of AIRT as well as the public safety testing conducted by DRONERESPONDERS with financial aid and advanced drone technology.
“We are excited to team up with Parrot to explore how their latest technology can help emergency response professionals prepare for, respond to, and recover from complex incidents,” said Christopher Todd, Executive Director of AIRT.
AIRT already uses the Parrot ANAFI 32x zoom and 4K HDR video as well as the thermal imaging capabilities with much success. Todd expects the ruggedness and increased capabilities offered by the new Parrot ANAFI USA will bolster AIRT’s response capability for the height of the 2020 hurricane season.
Todd continued, “We’ll be coordinating extensive testing with members of both AIRT and the DRONERESPONDERS program to fully assess the ANAFI USA’s capabilities for both disaster response and public safety missions.”
Chris Roberts, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Parrot, commented, “Our partnership allows Parrot to collaborate directly with first responders to make a positive impact within their communities.” Adding, “We are excited to get the ANAFI USA deployed into real-world response missions to help save lives and property.”
Manufactured in the U.S., ANAFI USA offers the same high-end security, durability and imaging capabilities as Parrot’s Short-Range Reconnaissance (SRR) drone designed for the U.S. Army. It’s robust data encryption and privacy features ensure that users have total control over where and how their data is managed.
