DLRG Workshop on Situation Assessment and Visualisation

On May 17, 2014, a workshop of the German Lifeguard Association (DLRG) on the application of UAS, RPAS and satellites for the exploration and visualisation of situations took place at the state fire brigade school of Würzburg. Managed by Mr. Xaver Schruhl, DLRG of Bavaria, the event was attended by commercial providers of UAV systems, (potential) UAV-users from various civil protection organisations as well as representatives from research organisations. The highlight of this event was a live demonstration of a Geo-Copter X8000 in the school yard. The VABENE++ project was presented by Hannes Römer (German Remote Sensing Data Center).
