App for the rescue flight "BOS Radar"

Development of a digital application for visualizing rescue flights

When the rescue helicopter takes off, drones have to take evasive action in good time. In practice, this is difficult. The helicopters are not always visible and their flight routes are unknown. A safety problem for both sides.

Project duration

Project start: Fall 2023
Project end: Summer 2024

The goal

To solve the problem, Droniq, the non-profit ADAC Luftrettung and rescuetrack are developing Germany's first digital application for visualizing rescue flights. The digital application "BOS Radar" will be available as an app in the Apple and Google Play Store.  

The implementation

The digital application is based on Droniq's traffic management system (UTM). This displays active rescue missions in real time - including the planned route section. The information for this is transmitted by rescuetrack.

Drone pilots who are in the planned route section with their drone are warned in good time via the Droniq UTM. This enables them to take evasive action or make an intermediate landing in good time. At the same time, a virtual safety corridor is set up around the planned route of the rescue helicopters in the UTM and displayed to the users. They can take the planned rescue route into account accordingly in their flights. In addition, the information on drone traffic can be passed on to rescuetrack via the UTM and thus made available to the rescue units as needed.

Our contribution

Droniq is part of the project team and provides market expertise as well as traffic management (UTM) including all information on unmanned air traffic. Furthermore, it supports with technical expertise.

Voices about the project

Time and again, we experience private, commercial or government drones unintentionally approaching our rescue helicopters. All the more reason for us to look forward to solving this challenge with our platform.

Pilot and Head of Flight Operations at ADAC Luftrettung

With the current project, the DFS subsidiary Droniq is further expanding its position as a leading specialist in the use of drones by public authorities. Furthermore, the platform marks the missing building block for Droniq to make really all air traffic participants visible in the near-ground airspace in the future.

DRONIQlive: How drones help to rescue fawns

Rescuing fawns with the help of drones is a hot topic. Every spring, farmers start mowing their fields and unfortunately fawns are often caught by the mowing machines without being detected.

Drones can be a great help in saving the animals! Equipped with thermal imaging cameras, drone pilots can spot the animals from the air before it is too late. This allows farmers, hunters or other helpers to rescue the fawns in good time.

In our next edition of DRONIQlive on Thu, 23.05.2024 at 7 pm, we will take a closer look at this topic. We look forward to your participation!
