The Eagle Eye drone is a tricopter packed with powerful technologies to give wilderness rescue teams a birds-eye-view of the landscape below. For hard-to-reach areas and treacherous terrain, it uses a cocktail of cameras, sensors and integrated artificial intelligence to know the topology of the field.
Solar powered pylons keep the drone recharged so that it can work autonomously, scanning the ground daily to map track changes due to rain, falling trees that block paths, and the overall growth of vegetation in the area. This way, rescuers are always aware of the best routes and familiar with the territory in order to make the most effective rescues.
