DENVER—North Carolina-based drone company Triangle UAS recently unveiled a drone-mount real-time video streaming system designed with the purpose of boosting situational awareness during emergency response and search and rescue efforts. The real-time aerial video can be streamed from first responders to a remote operator or emergency operations center via a secure internet connection.
The Triangle UAS device is lightweight and compact, and can connect directly to the controller of a video-enabled drone so it can encode and transmit the video to the internet through 4G or Wi-Fi networks. This enables the video to be viewed in real time on multiple screens.
There is also a custom server software platform, as well as a mobile and web-based app that supports secure access for viewers with customizable privileges and the ability to record all incoming streams from multiple video sources. Video from conventional video cameras and smartphones will also be supported.
Triangle UAS debuted its new technology at the Smart Cities Connected Conference & Expo in Denver.
