Impossible Aerospace has announced a product called Air Support that it says will transform the world’s cities and the way they respond to emergencies. Impossible Air Support, the company said, is a turn-key program that lets cities dispatch drones directly to the scene of their 911 calls to improve emergency response times. Mounted on top of tall city buildings, the drones are controlled by police officers and firefighters from secure command stations within their departments. Once deployed, they can provide a live video feed of an evolving situation to responders on the ground, intervene in a situation with sirens or lights, or even deliver crucial supplies like life jackets or AED’s. The FAA has posted a Request for Information (RFI) seeking input from the manned aviation community regarding whether and/or how they can potentially receive and use UAS remote ID information to further enhance safety, by reducing collision risks at lower altitudes. The FAA says the posting is not an RFP. FAA recently released a NPRM on Remote Identification for UAS; the comment period for the NPRM closed on March 02, 2020. Responses to this RFI will not be included in the official docket of the NPRM. Queensland University Of Technology (QUT) researchers will apply their innovative method for detecting koalas using drones and infrared imaging in a collaborative project to identify wildlife populations in bushfire affected areas. Associate Professor Grant Hamilton has launched a project that will use technology and artificial intelligence to create a “census” of animals that survived the bushfires. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
