Disaster Preparedness – Solution
First of all disaster preparedness has never been more important than now, it is also difficult to prepare victims for the destruction and devastation of a flood. In addition, during floods property and possessions maybe lost and safety is threatened.
As a result, there have been nearly 1.2 million deaths, almost $3 billion people affected and as much as $1.7 trillion in damages. Most noteworthy, according to data from the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, while these staggering figures are however, the total economic and human impact of global disasters from past years 2002 to 2012.
Because of a steady growth in annual disasters, especially climate-related ones, emergency management strategies are under the microscope. Disaster management technologies, on the other hand and have seen some breakthroughs in the past decade..
The Hov Pod disaster preparedness solution is effective because it is a unique integration of the latest surveillance technologies, the all-terrain capability of hovercraft and the aerial capacity of drones. As a result the solution operates from mostly inaccessible disaster areas, floods and earthquakes.
Our disaster preparedness solution delivers actionable intelligence from remote locations, hence you quickly respond or engage from the surface or from the air. Rather than a traditional disaster solutions, boats, helicopters, trucks, we offer the opposite, a continuous and persistent mobile all-terrain and amphibious solution.
As a result, you have increased visibility, therefore heightened awareness, while augmented the ability to respond quickly to any alert, incident or intrusion.
Disaster Preparedness – Capabilities
The initial response to any disaster is critical in determining the success of the follow-on response. Immediate overhead imagery showing the impact of the disaster is critical in being able to inform the first responders, how to assist in the correct aid arriving as soon as possible.
Especially relevant to the conditions, the solution operates day and night in addition to being all weather. The Disaster preparedness solution integrates hovercraft, drones, tethers, robotics, low light cameras, thermal imaging, sonar, echo, radar, sensors, AIS, VHF, weather forecast, record/backup and replay, therefore provides actionable intelligence.
Getting into the interior of the disaster during flooding emergencies is difficult, garbage will float in the water and traditional rescue boat propellers easily get snagged and become immobilized. In addition, water jet in-take engines are also affected, hovercraft hover typically 9 inches above the surface and is therefore not affected.
Deploy the disaster preparedness solution from any terrain or amphibiously as opposed to traditional land based systems, in addition receive a live video feed from the areas monitored by the drone, hovercraft, or static surveillance options. The system integrates with existing surveillance systems or comes with a fully operational command center.
While helicopters are expensive to operate, in addition 100 mph downdraft winds require a long winch cable which slows response times. Furthermore, when waters rise, victims climb trees and pylons, helicopters are less effective and cannot see victims under thick tree cover or operate near pylons.
