Eyes in the Sky: Coastguard Sumner trials drones for search and rescue

We are dedicated to exploring new and better ways to improve our search and rescue capabilities. Reflecting this commitment, Coastguard Sumner is working with drone expert Daniel Manchester from Proform Group and Canterbury Air Patrol to test eight different drones in real rescue situations. The idea came from a meeting with Coastguard Canterbury, where they talked about the potential of using technology in enhancing search and rescue efforts.
