Sherbrooke Fire Department selects ING Robotic Aviation to provide support for
OTTAWA, April 15, 2014 /CNW/ - The Fire Department of Sherbrooke, Quebec has
called upon the services of local unmanned aircraft sales and services
company, ING Robotic Aviation, to help assess the level of the river and
precisely determine the areas affected by the raise of water. ING's Responder
will be used to capture real time aerial surveys of the rivers using high
resolution cameras, which will be used to create a map of the region. This
stabilized, gimbal mounted camera will provide information to the public
safety authorities as to the water levels of the Saint-François river.
"Responder will be used as an integral tool for flood monitoring," said Ian
Glenn, Chief Executive of ING Robotic Aviation. "Our equipment will be used
to get the right information, into the right hands, at the right time - in
this case, directly into the hands of those managing the flood response."
The Responder system, comprised of a rotary wing aircraft and portable ground
control station, is ideal for applications such as public safety and search
and rescue. The ability to perform timely, highly detailed and accurate remote
sensing surveillance using a robotic aircraft reduces both the costs and risks
to life during these types of events. A range of sensors can be mounted,
allowing for execution of a wide variety of inspection, monitoring and mapping.
ING Robotic Aviation has close links with the City of Sherbrooke. Our R&D
Centre is located there, and links with the university are extensive. For
example, we continually employ co-op students, and sponsor the VAMUdeS
ING Robotic Aviation delivers airborne sensing solutions and much more. We
developed our skills through extensive operational surveillance work with the
Canadian military. From these beginnings, we are now providing commercial
services including critical infrastructure inspections, forest fire monitoring
and land use planning in North America and other regions. We are at the
forefront of a disruptive technological and operational change, focused on
