Applications on the Synergy of Satellite Telecommunications, Earth Observation and Navigation – Search and Rescue Land
Development of a pre-operational, yet functional demonstrator for Search and Rescue (SAR) operations in mountain rescue services consisting of support technology for the headquarter and the field teams.
SAR Land designs, implements, and validates a proof-of-concept demonstrator in the field of SAR operations on land. The specific application targeted here is a mission support tool for mountain rescue services. The potential of synergistic services combining Earth observation, navigation, communication, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) by introducing an innovative solution to a real need is demonstrated. The demonstrator works on a pre-operational yet functional basis.
