ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

EENA (European Emergency Number Association) and DJI (world’s largest commercial drone manufacturer) have entered a partnership to understand and evaluate the use of RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) or UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) in Civil Protection/First Responder scenarios in a number of pilot sites in Europe.

OBJECTIVE

The main objective for the project is to learn how such technology can assist our Fire and Rescue Services, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Police Services, Coastguards and Humanitarian organizations in different scenarios and in different environments such as urban, rural, mountainous, forest and “over-water” conditions.
