The UAS SAR Resource Web Site
May 1, 2018
When you think about it, search and rescue (SAR) volunteers are a special breed of people. They're big hearted people who dedicate their time and efforts in a search for a complete stranger; the epitome of selflessness. SAR has many facets to it and each one is a specialty unto itself. UAS SAR is the newest niche' of the search and rescue world and it is becoming more and more common with the use of "drones" with SAR incidents every years.
With the introduction of the UAS (unmanned aerial systems; i.e. "drones") into the search process, a new group called aerial (or drone) pilots has emerged onto the scene and are being welcomed into the traditional SAR teams with time saving and life saving technologies and contributions they bring to the table.
There are plenty of SAR groups out there, and even a lot of new UAS SAR groups are popping up all the time. This web site is not another SAR or UAS SAR group or club ...this web site will be the "bible" or reference site for all things UAS SAR related. We welcome you and your SAR group to utilize this site and register yourselves as associates so that we share with you the latest news, education, information and SAR mission notification going on in your area.
Bookmark this site; share it with your colleagues ...and we welcome any and all contributions of info, suggestions, tips, etc. you can share with us to help improve the UAS SAR community.
