CRASAR Demonstrates a New Drone Platform at Fort Bend County EOC

26 03 2018

The Office of Emergency Management hosted the Center for Robotically-Assisted Search and Rescue (CRASAR) as they demonstrated a new drone platform that OEM and the Fire Marshal’s Office is considering using. The DJI Matrice 210 is an advanced industrial-grade drone that is weather-ready and able to fly in support of Emergency Management and Fire missions.

It supports dual bottom-mount cameras with infrared-vision to help inspect burning and burnt buildings as well as assisting in search-and-rescue operations and can mount a camera on the top to assist in bridge inspections after a disaster. Officials from the Fire Marshal’s Office, Sugar Land Airport, Sugar Land OEM, Fort Bend County Drainage District, the FAA, and OEM discussed the platform and then got to see it in action.
