Assisted recovery by on-board sensors

The RAPACE 2 project follows on from the RAPACE project.
RAPACE 2 aims to develop a captive motorized carrier which can quickly and easily deploy a sensor to an average observation altitude of 150m directed by any operator without special training.

The on-board sensor becomes a "remote eye" to:

  • Monitor various target areas: industrial sites, forests, ports, pipelines ...
  • Locate and identify objects (people, vehicles, oil slicks, containers ...)
  • Geo-reference these objects
  • Guide response teams to detected objects.
