  • aerial platforms for drone deploys

    Hi, I hope you might be able to give me some feedback to an idea ive had for about a year now. I have no previous firefighting experience/knowledge so hope you will be kind and not dismiss me to quickly. I live in the UK and voluntary fly my drone in a SAR capacity, I will in the near future be moving the BC Canada. After viewing some aerial platforms on this site I started to wonder if a aerial platform could be the perfect base to launch drones from in a SAR capacity or even support wild fires etc. with say a 100ft platform the drone pilot could launch the drone from the vehicle and thus minimise the drone landing in a small area, the vehicle with being so long might be and issue in some spots I presume but id think it would be used behind the main rescue teams anyway. With the bucket being 100ft high the drone pilot would have an immediate advantage of being able to see above the treeline and with un-obstructed views fly the drone to its destination. The bucked could hold 2 pilots and increase the search area? also the Pilots could actively scan the horizon with thermal imaging devices etc. lastly the vehicle could act as a beacon with the introduction of L.E.D lighting. Any constructive feedback would be most appreciated
    Thank you in advance pete

    I am not a drone flyer

    but everything you say makes sense.

    Just need to find a fire Dept that will work with you.

    The other are city trucks with buckets or electric line trucks with buckets, tree trimmers etc
