A new partnership between impressive drone and software companies join their strengths to integrate drones in the public safety and first responder sectors.
Christopher Eyhorn, CEO of DroneSense, says: “It’s our mission at DroneSense to enable first responders to build and scale fully operational drone programs that harness the value of the latest drone technology safely and effectively.”*
DroneSense, a large software company, and French UAV giant Parrot, a drone manufacturer, are both providers of public-safety drone software and are growing into a new corporate partnership, which expects present challenges to be eased greatly through their ongoing partnership.
The agreement combines Parrot’s ANAFI quadcopter with DroneSense impressive capabilities, tailor-made for the needs of first responders with their Anafi aircraft, which will focus on the public-safety/first-responder drone market. This platform meets some of the urgent needs of police, fire and rescue agencies by building, managing, and scaling drone programs.
The deal should be an ideal partnership with Parrot’s ANAFI and ANAFI Thermal drones, which offer a very compact tool for professionals, such as the agency’s built-in 4K HDR camera, which also integrates on FLIR thermal sensors This enables users to capture thermal and visual readings more readily, bringing faster response times, with higher precision and efficiency.
A spokesperson from DroneSense reasoned:
“This functionality coupled with the scene management tools in the DroneSense Platform will provide public safety operators with an unparalleled level of situational awareness that will ultimately help save more lives.”*
Jerome Bouvard, director of strategic partnership, Parrot, says:
“Parrot consistently offers top-of-the-line solutions to our enterprise customers, and this partnership with DroneSense will allow us to deliver a seamless and integrated experience. With entire fleets of drones to manage, decision-makers in the public safety sector are often faced with unique challenges when it comes to effective mission planning and hardware tracking. We expect these challenges to be eased greatly through this ongoing partnership.”*
Christopher Eyhorn, CEO of DroneSense, says:
“It’s our mission at DroneSense to enable first responders to build and scale fully operational drone programs that harness the value of the latest drone technology safely and effectively.”* Because of these advances, firefighting units can monitor hotpots within a building using aerial thermal imagery from an ANAFI drone, and the public-safety drone software also logs all data for later storage and analysis.
This new dynamic partnership is expected to deliver a seamless and integrated experience in the drone industry.The strategic partnership of DroneSense and Parrot should encourage us all in what can be accomplished when visionary leaders, and their companies, seek to join in partnerships because they recognize that some things can be done more successfully, efficiently and safely, when done together.
