The United States’ Gulf Coast has seen an unusual number of hurricanes this year, with hurricanes Laura and Marco proving particularly damaging in August.
The latest storm, Delta, looks set to intensify into a hurricane by the time it collides with the Gulf Coast later this week.
It is the 25th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season – the earliest in the year that a 25th storm has been named.
Now, however, Airobotics is claiming to have a solution that could help limit the damage caused in a number of ways.
Airobotics is a drone solutions provider for commercial and government uses.
It said that it can provide an invaluable bird’s-eye-view of hurricane paths both before and after they pass through a location.
This, Airobotics said, enables efficient strategising, protection of emergency personnel, as well as monitoring for stranded people or destroyed property.
The solution, it claimed, is a “game-changer” for situational awareness and emergency response, supporting both local ground forces and remote command and control center operators.
Airobotics replaces the need to send counter-measure forces to the incident’s location, thereby reducing reaction time, the risk to personnel, and unnecessary response to false positives.
