Drones in Extreme Environments Search and Rescue


    When it comes to search and rescue missions, time is scarce and mistakes cannot be afforded. Especially in countries like Iceland where weather conditions are harsh and daylight is limited. Thor Argnrimsson, member of a search and rescue team in Iceland, believes the DJI Matrice M200 Series has revolutionized the way in which his team can work. He takes us through the challenges of a typical mission and the ways in which the DJI M200 Series overcomes these obstacles by adding efficiency and reliability to each mission.

    High-performance motors paired with 17-inch propellers ensure stable flight in strong winds. The new dual-battery power system automatically heats batteries when flying in sub-zero temperatures, while an enclosed design ensures weather and water resistance, so you can fly in a wide range of environments.
