Two Way Radio for Drones Means Rescuers Can Hear a Cry for Help
A two way radio for drones from Dotterel Technologies means that drone operators could actually have a two-way conversation with people on the ground.
The sophisticated audio payload allows for communications despite the sound of the drone itself. The applications for a two way radio for drones are tremendous, but Dotterel has started out with one of the most compelling: search and rescue.
Drones have become a critical tool for search and rescue operations, because they can cover a large area quickly. Operators seek missing persons through cell phone signals, thermal imaging, and visual imaging, but until now they haven’t been able to locate a missing person by one of the most obvious methods: a cry for help.
