Applications on the Synergy of Satellite Telecommunications, Earth Observation and Navigation – Search and Rescue Land (ASTRON)
Development of a pre-operational, yet functional demonstrator for Search and Rescue (SAR) operations
in mountain rescue services consisting of support technology for the
headquarter and the field teams.
SAR Land designs, implements, and validates a proof-of-concept demonstrator in the
field of SAR operations on land. The specific application targeted here is a mission
support tool for mountain rescue services. The potential of
synergistic services combining Earth observation, navigation, communication, and Geographic
Information Systems (GIS) by introducing an innovative solution to a real need is demonstrated. The
demonstrator works on a pre-operational yet functional basis.
