The Rescue Drones Network network project (http://www.rescuedrones.net/) is a people group committed to the creation of the first ready-to-use network of remotely piloted aircraft (Drones) to support both ordinary and medium-sized rescue operations. macro emergencies.
They needed to locate the position of its drones precisely and quickly in order to be able to assess its position on the field during use, as well as in case of loss of the aircraft.
The critical points of the project were:
- extremely small size and weight of the locator
- great autonomy with continuous data transmission
- sending coordinates to a central server in real time
- precision and speed in the acquisition of coordinates
- resistance of the device to atmospheric agents (water, dust)
Marcom proposed to the technician who contacted us the Teltonika TMT250 product. It is a product created for tracking and monitoring of people, with functions of man-to-earth, emergency button and high-capacity battery.
The product perfectly adapted to the customer's requests
- dimensions: 44 x 43 x 20 mm - weight: 40g
- equipped with high-capacity lithium battery: 800 mAh Li-Ion battery (3.04 Wh)
- data connection via GPRS with the possibility of setting an IP address / symbolic name of one or two servers. Sending coordinates with a maximum frequency of 1 time per second
- support for Galileo satellite services, GLONASS, GPS, BeiDou, A-GPS. Position acquisition in open field in less than 30 seconds
- device is IP67 certified and works in a temperature range of -25 °C / + 55 °C
After the study and a trial installation, the system became operational and is now installed on the drones participating in the Rescue Drone Network service
