The Airborne Project

Airborne is a H2020 European Project whose goal is twofold:

1

ROBOTIC
AERIAL
TECH

2

NET
WORK

To develop at TRL8 a few selected robotic aerial technologies for quick localization of victims buried by avalanches by equipping drones with the two forefront sensor technologies nowadays used in Search&Rescue operations in case of avalanche, namely the ARTVA and RECCO.

The robotic technologies will constitute the initial “technological seed” on which an innovative ICT technology service network will be constituted at European level with the final goal of feeding professional S&R teams/associations with effective ICT technologies by creating a business opportunity and contributing to address several shortcomings of current operations.
