The 2011 Tohoku Earthquake triggered a re-evaluation of the importance of quick appraisal of the initial situation following a large-scale disaster. Although existing aircraft are usable in a widespread disaster situation, their use immediately after a disaster may encounter problems due to the restricted number of available aircraft or of suitable sites for take-off and landing. Such issues are solved by quickly and easily identifying the actual disaster situation by the use of panoramic…

Emerging UAV technology for disaster detection, mitigation, response, and preparedness

Examining how UAVs can assist survivors in floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, or in any natural or human‐made disaster situations, either in the present or soon is examined.

Comparative Features of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) for Border Protection of Libya: A Review

The present investigation deals with the comparative studies of UAVs used for Libyan border’s protection between ELI-XL multi-raptorUAVs, Desert Hawk III (DH III) UAVS, RQ-IIB Raven UAV's, Silent Falcon Uavs and Phantom 4 Advanced.

Utility Based Scheduling for Multi-UAV Search Systems in Disaster-Hit Areas

This work proposes a scheduling method of multi-UAV search systems that takes into account both the processing time of image data and the data transfer time and results indicate that the proposed scheduling method maximizes user utility and performs better than a conventional scheduling method in terms of user-centric evaluation metrics.

Overview and Current Status of Remote Sensing Applications Based on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

An overview of different areas of remote sensing applications based on unmanned aerial platforms equipped with a set of specific sensors and instruments is presented, each independent from the others so that the reader does not need to read the full paper when a specific application is of interest.
