Posted 7 June 2019 · Add Comment

Organisers of The Emergency Services Show (NEC, Birmingham, 18th-19th September) have announced two new features at this year’s event: the SkyBound Rescuer Drone Seminar and a SkyBound Rescuer Drone Zone.

Sponsored by SOARIZON by Thales, the new seminar and exhibition zone are designed to foster drone development for emergency services through research and discussion. The Emergency Services Show 2019 is the UK’s largest event for the emergency services and a showcase for emerging technologies, held in the Drone Dome, Hall 5 at the NEC.



“New emerging drone technologies are seducing public safety organisations with the promise of reducing search times, improving situational awareness, enhancing team safety, reducing costs, or even the potential of delivering medical supplies ahead of rescue teams,” said Gemma Alcock (above), founder and CEO of Skybound Rescuer. “Drones are saving lives faster, safer, and cheaper than ever before. But drones are still far from fulfilling their full potential, the best is yet to come.”

“Drones have a valuable role to play in supporting and enhancing the work of all our emergency services,” added ESS event director David Brown. “The addition of the Drone Dome will be brilliant showcase to encourage enhanced operational efficiency and effectiveness alongside other emerging technologies at the show such as the latest vehicles, communications, medical and firefighting equipment, protective clothing, training technology and much more.”

The SkyBound Rescuer Drone Seminar and a SkyBound Rescuer Drone Zone will help emergency services and public safety professionals to make the best tactical and strategic use of drone technology. Attendees are expected to come from every part of the emergency services community including police, fire and ambulance; lowland, mountain, cave and coastal SAR; lifeboats and flood rescue units.

The SkyBound Rescuer Drone Seminar Day on 19th September will share the latest innovative thinking, reveal what lessons can be learned from experience, fully explore what is possible today and equip visitors with the strategic and tactical knowledge to apply to future drone operations. The seminar day opens with a thought-provoking presentation on Public Safety Drones by internationally renowned keynote speaker, Charles Werner; a pioneer of drones in public safety across the USA. This will be followed by five research-driven presentations covering the latest research in the field of drones for public safety in the UK and internationally. These will cover:
•    Drone Procedures Optimisation
•    Optimising the Probability of Detection for an Aerial Search by Using ViDAR
•    Using AI and Drones to Detect Aggressive Behaviour and Weapons in Crowds
•    Using Autonomous BVLOS* Drones for First Response
•    Drone Search Research Trials
