CompassDrone to unveil drone-based mapping programme

CompassDrone, a developer of unmanned aerial solutions for data collection, is set to unveil a drone-based mapping solution intended for public safety applications.

Called Complete Incident Response Recovery Unmanned Aerial System (CIRRUAS) solution, it is primarily designed for accident reconstruction and crime scene mapping but can also be applied for search & rescue and reconnaissance missions.

CompassDrone vice president Hayden Howard said: "CIRRUAS was designed by law enforcement for law enforcement to meet their unique mapping and data collection needs.

"The result is a complete drone program comprising all the hardware, software and training they need to deploy drones in their daily operations."

CompassDrone will showcase the new solution at the 2017 APCO Conference & Exhibition, which is being held from 13 to 16 August in Denver.

Howard added: "We designed CIRRUAS to make data collection safer, faster and more accurate for public safety officers.

"The programme is an affordable, all-inclusive solution for mapping with unmanned aerial systems."

This solution is claimed to include everything necessary for public safety personnel so that they can accurately and quickly map an accident or crime scene for 3D reconstruction or evidence preservation purposes.

The company offers several CIRRUAS packages, but each contains several DJI drones software, and Part 107 commercial flight training.

Howard added: "The DJI drones selected for this package capture imagery of sufficient quality for the 3D photogrammetric mapping required for accident reconstruction and crime scene visualisation.

"Every CIRRUAS package is backed up with ongoing technical and applications support by CompassDrone personnel."
