SUMMARY: Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are a valuable tool for help investigators document the scene of serious traffic accidents. The technology offered by drones helps police conclude the investigation more rapidly and with greater detail than traditional tools, ultimately resulting in better, more cost-effective data. PROBLEM: Serious traffic accidents need to be well documented which can result in extended road closures that impede transportation and commerce. Investi
SUMMARY: Unmanned aircraft vehicles are an effective tool for law enforcement to use when mapping accident and crime scenes. Drones provide investigators with greater analysis capabilities at a fraction of the time. PROBLEM: Traditional methods for surveying an accident or crime scene are cumbersome. It typically takes a team of officers hours to map out 100-300 measurement points using survey equipment. This can lead to substantial economic loss as buildings or roadways a
SUMMARY: Unmanned aircraft systems can help law enforcement and first responders reduce the amount of time it takes to investigate an traffic accident by about 85% leading to economic benefits in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. PROBLEM: In 2010 there were over 2010 traffic fatalities across Canada's highways and roads. The number of major collisions was even higher. Each crash places an intense burden on first responders. Fire Rescue must suppress any hazards and extr
SUMMARY: UAV's represent an extremely efficient tool for law enforcement personnel to use when investigating accidents. Drones can be rapidly deployed to help police capture a bird's eye perspective of the scene and learn details than may be otherwise unseen from ground level.
PROBLEM: Police accident investigators often need to take an aerial photo of an accident scene. Most law enforcement agencies do not have access to an aviation unit for such purposes. Historically, m
