The Lynx-6A is the latest in a growing line of drone accessories that are designed specifically for use in search and rescue situations. This particular system is targeted towards police, firefighters, law enforcement personnel and any first responders who may be on the lookout for survivors trapped beneath collapsed buildings following an earthquake or terrorist attack.
The system uses a tiny HD video camera that helps guide the drone. The drone is equipped with a sensor that can detect changes in the electromagnetic signature of space. This enables it to detect electromagnetic signals emitted by people.
As far as drone accessories go, the Lynx-6A is one of the most thoughtfully designed so far, and could go a long way towards saving lives. In addition, it could also be used to detect people who are hiding in places where they shouldn't.
