Abstract

The goal of this major qualifying project is to improve upon the search and rescue process with the utilization of a drone-integrated sensor suite. Currently, search and rescue techniques are outdated, and improvements can be made with the application of drone technology. This design uses multimodal sensors to help search and rescue teams to identify, locate, communicate with, and deliver supplies to distressed individuals in the wilderness via drone until further help arrives
