“The Department expects to use these aircraft for a diverse set of missions including, wildlife and vegetation surveys, fire management, search and rescue, hydrologic study, cultural resource inventory, and surface mining monitoring, just to name a few,” said the Department’s Office of Aviation Service Director Mark Bathrick. “These UAS will not only provide us with better science and reduce the risk to our employees, but they will result in cost savings and better service for the Department and the American people.”
Urgently needed medical supplies can be moved from clinics to remote locations by Remotely Piloted Aircraft (drones). Fosters + Partners see the need for an infrastructure leap with Africa's population boom expected to double to 2.2 Billion by 2050.
Will this system scale up to an Air Ambulance?
The goal of the CONCERTO program is “for the design, realization, programming, and control of a new converged RF architecture supporting all critical uses of the RF spectrum over a tactically useful performance range. System prototypes will be designed and developed for compact unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).”
