Latest non-profit research initiative will explore emergency services drone program growth, live streaming, FAA, and other issues impacting public safety UAS operations.
MIAMI, FL – July 14, 2021 – The Airborne International Response Team (AIRT), the leading 501(c)3 non-profit organization supporting the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for public safety and disaster response – and the official home of DRONERESPONDERS® – has announced the launch of the AIRT-DRONERESPONDERS Summer 2021 Public Safety UAS Survey.
The 3rd edition of the research survey will explore key issues affecting UAS programs at public safety agencies and emergency services organizations around the world. The AIRT-DRONERESPONDERS annual survey has become a key tool for benchmarking the evolution of drone use by first responders and key stakeholders at all types and sizes of public safety-related organizations.
“2021 represents the third straight year we will be collecting data on public safety drone use,” said Chief Charles Werner (ret.), Director, DRONERESPONDERS. “This information will help UAS program leaders, managers, manufacturers, integrators, solution providers, and other partners make better-informed decisions to guide the sector forward.”
The AIRT-DRONERESPONDERS Summer 2021 Public Safety UAS Survey is open to all public safety-related drone program leaders, managers, remote pilots, and other interested partners who are actively planning or managing emergency services UAS programs. The survey is expected to take 10 minutes or less to complete. Survey findings will be presented in August 2021.
