In its unwavering commitment to advancing Search and Rescue (SAR) missions, FlySight has made significant strides by integrating OPENSIGHT with two of the industry’s best-in-class mobile phone detection, location, and communication systems: Artemis by Smith Myers and Lifeseeker by CENTUM.
The latest integration between OPENSIGHT and LIFESEEKER, combined with the cutting-edge technology of DJI drones, marks a significant leap forward in the realm of search and rescue missions.
OPENSIGHT and LIFESEEKER Integration: A Game-Changer
The collaboration between OPENSIGHT and LIFESEEKER will be showcased at EUROPEAN ROTORS 2023 and introduces a integration aimed at maximizing the efficiency and capabilities of DJI drones. The OPENSIGHT Software Development Kit (SDK) seamlessly integrates with DJI drones, elevating them into STANAG-Compliant sensors with state-of-the-art capabilities.
The OPENSIGHT-mission console (mc), housed within a tablet ground control station, incorporates moving maps and augmented reality functionalities. This interface provides operators with real-time information, overlaying multiple synthetic layers onto live video feeds. The result is an unparalleled situational awareness that enhances the effectiveness of search and rescue missions.
Lifeseeker: Enhancing Geolocation Performance
Lifeseeker, the airborne phone location system developed by CENTUM, plays a crucial role in enhancing geolocation performance during SAR operations. Even in challenging low or no visibility conditions, Lifeseeker compatibility significantly improves the accuracy and reliability of location data.
The collected information from Lifeseeker is transmitted in real-time to the OPENSIGHT engine, creating an optimal situational awareness for operators. This enhancement accelerates and maximizes the efficiency of recovery operations, setting a new standard in search and rescue capabilities.
Héctor Estévez, CEO of CENTUM, expressed the significance of the partnership with FlySight:
This partnership with FlySight is a testament to our commitment to saving lives and making a difference in critical situations. By integrating our Lifeseeker technology with the OPENSIGHT Software Development Kit, we’re not only enhancing the capabilities of DJI drones, but also expanding our reach to helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. We are pushing the boundaries of technology to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of search and rescue operations.
Héctor Estévez, CEO of CENTUM research & technology
The integration of OPENSIGHT, LIFESEEKER and DJI drones represents a great step forward in the capabilities of airborne search and rescue operations. As technology continues to advance, these collaborations demonstrate a commitment to innovation, efficiency and saving lives in critical situations.
