The Jerusalem post Israeli-made drones will take part in rescue missions in glaciers and fjords in the Arctic Circle of northern Norway. After going through various flight tests last year, the drones were approved for participating in the rescue missions by NPAID, the world’s leading arctic rescue unit.
Produced by Atlas Dynamics, the drones are equipped with technology that allows them to operate in freezing conditions. Their unique aerodynamic structure allows them to fly for long periods of time without recharging, while the artificial intelligence and decentralized communications systems that they contain allow them to fly as an independent swarm, far away from any human operator.
Their state-of-the-art capabilities mean that the drones can continuously fly for hours on end over difficult terrain and identify targets under extreme conditions.
