The Antwerp Police Zone and the Antwerp Fire Department have been investigating the supporting role of drones during interventions. The tests take place within the framework of the European project Drones4Antwerp. The intention is to investigate how drones can be integrated into the operation of the police and emergency services. During the day as well as at night, different services handle scenarios on site with the help of the drone. The test must show whether drones can offer added value to the emergency services and in what form.
The drones with which the test flights are carried out work partly with an automatic control system, but the police also monitor them from the command room. Skeyes, the director of the airways, granted permission for the flights. The project also evaluates the current legal framework with regard to the use of drones by emergency services.
Plenty of options
Drones could map accidents or fires from the air and identify suspects in Antwerp’s streets. The aim of the Drones4Antwerp project is to map the legal, technological and financial feasibility of the various applications.

The 3DSafeGuard drone will be deployed in the crucial life-saving first minutes of a disaster or accident. The device is already on-route to the incident, so that the rescue workers are aware of the situation and problems (in real time) before they arrive on site.
DroneMatrix has developed the YACOB-drone to assist emergency services on the go, without the need of a qualified pilot.
This project was realized with: Xtendit, Securitas, SERIS, CityMesh, KULeuven, IMEC and the Flemish Government.
Mirador: Monitoring Industrial sites with Reliable, semi-Autonomous and Online Drones. This R&D project built a drone-based surveillance solution enabling new security service offerings for large industrial sites: on-board sensor and camera data is used for autonomous flights and surveillance actions, while secure communication allows confirming security hazards remotely.
Thanks to this project DroneMatrix is also able to provide services for large industrial sites with high security demands.

BARIK @ Oman
DroneMatrix has partnered up with the BRAVE HAWKS, which is a subsidiary of the successful BARIK Group, in Oman to service the market in the Middle-East.
Both TYTHUS and YACOB installations have been deployed locally to demonstrate the possibilities.
Together with our partner the BRAVE HAWKS, we have executed different projects for local and international companies in the Middle-East.
