Let's Talk Search & Rescue Drones

Why Invest In Search and Rescue Drones ?

Search and Rescue teams are being stretched thin nationwide. With ever-growing responsibilities, agencies are innovating for efficiency and turning to nimble technology for solutions.

Drone and robotics tools provide an expansive utility that makes them ideal for search and rescue teams who want more capability to respond, to reach inaccessible and remote areas, and work quicker to save lives — while also keeping cost at a minimum.

UAVs and robots can’t replace the brave men and women putting their own welfare at risk to rescue others — instead, because of their low flight ceilings, easy maneuverability and quick deployment, these tools can enable search and rescue teams to conduct their operations faster and more efficiently.

UVT’s passion for Search and Rescue drones goes beyond the technology. Many of our team members are actively serving or have served in public safety conducting SAR operations regularly. We understand the growing stressors you and your team face and are thankful for your service to your community, even when it means facing danger yourself.

When your agency forms its fleet with UVT, you have complete access to our program integration, training, and 24/7 on-call support services. 

We help maximize search and rescue teams efficiency and effectiveness.

Our Search And Rescue Drone Specialists equip SAR operators with tools and training to bring everyone home safe.

Drone Use In Search and Rescue Professions

SAR efforts require operators to deploy the right tools for mission success. The drone and robotics tools you need should be determined by your mission. However, there are a few common uses that often overlap between fleets.

 Thermal Imaging

With an aerial advantage and broad scope, drones are able to use radiometric thermal imaging to search for a missing person's body heat signature in any terrain, day or night.

 Delivering Rescue Supplies

For rescues involving stranded persons, the right drone is able to carry and deploy lifejackets, water, food, medical supplies and more to those in need without putting other rescuers in harm's way.


With their low flight ceilings, easy maneuverability and built-in communication systems, drones can help responders provide comfort, direction and next steps to the lost persons.
