Parrot is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Miami, Florida-based Airborne International Response Team (AIRT).
Parrot will support the disaster response and humanitarian missions of AIRT and the public safety testing conducted by DRONERESPONDERS with donations of both financial support as well as Parrot’s most advanced drone technology.
Christopher Todd, executive director of AIRT, said: “We are excited to team up with Parrot to explore how their latest drone technology can help emergency response professionals prepare for, respond to, and recover from complex incidents.”
Adding: “We truly appreciate their support and dedication to our non-profit mission.”
AIRT already uses the Parrot ANAFI Thermal with great success and Todd expects that the ruggedness and increased capabilities of combined zoom and thermal sensing offered by the new Parrot ANAFI USA will bolster AIRT’s response capability for the height of the 2020 hurricane season.
He continued: “We’ll be coordinating extensive testing with members of both AIRT and the DRONERESPONDERS program to fully assess the ANAFI USA’s capabilities for both disaster response and public safety missions.”
While Chris Roberts, chief sales and marketing officer for Parrot, said: “Our partnership with AIRT and DRONERESPONDERS allows Parrot to collaborate directly with first responders using drone technology to make a positive impact within their communities.”
“We are excited to get the ANAFI USA deployed into real-world response missions to help save lives and property.”
