SAVER Project: Unmanned Aircraft Systems for First Responders
Over the past decade, first responders have begun integrating small unmanned aerial systems (UAS) as a resource for a variety of operational needs. UAS, often referred to as “drones,” are used by first responders in support of public safety activities such as search and rescue, firefighting, and post incident reconstruction. UAS provide first responders with an aerial view of their environment and can be outfitted with various sensors tailored to different applications. The publication of the “Blue UAS Cleared List” or “Blue List” by the Department of Defense (DoD) may aid responder agencies with their acquisition processes. UAS on the Blue List or “Blue UAS” have been vetted to be compliant with DoD policy.
