New Report on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for First Responders

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for First Responders: Technology, Buying Guide and Operating Concept" report to their offering.

First Responders need information and they need it fast. Whether they're police officers rushing to a crime scene, fire fighters faced with a wall of smoke or medics sorting out a mass casualty event, they never know enough about what's ahead.

As a result, First Responders employ some of the most sophisticated technology found outside the military. UAVs are following the proven pattern of military technology migrating to civil agencies; some are already flying for First Responders. But very little military technology is suitable for direct transfer - buying military systems is almost always a big mistake.

This new report overviews unmanned aircraft technology, especially the UAVs that will prove most useful for First Responders. It also details the political, bureaucratic and privacy back stories' that form the public's context in the most demanding European and North American nations.

More importantly, this report includes two unique features that First Responders and their suppliers won't find anywhere else:

  • A detailed Buying Guide (with checklists) designed to walk First Responders through early planning for an unmanned aviation unit. It proves that simply operating ex-military unmanned aircraft will almost always fail.
  • An illustrated Operating Concept created for a real, diverse and geographically varied jurisdiction. It forms the basis for critical acquisition decisions and the new unit's success.

Together, these features will bring the reader to a level of understanding that will allow them to intelligently advise sworn leaders and community policy makers through a rational (not emotional) process of evaluating UAV capabilities relative to their needs and resources. This is not hype or a sales pitch - this is a detailed education with extractable guides and illustrations.

Key Topics Covered:

1. Introduction

2. Executive Summary

3. Current UAV Technologies

4. Operating Concept

5. Buying Guide
