In the LARUS project the basic suitability of an unmanned aerial system for automated operations in the field of sea rescue was demonstrated. In a next step, the system will be further developed and will also be used in the future for various scenarios and operations in rescue services and disaster control. For example, it will be used to search for missing persons on land, to assess the situation in the event of forest fires, natural disasters such as flood scenarios, or in the event of incidents and accidents. In the LARUS-PRO project, the system is also being integrated into the operational and tactical processes of the rescue service and disaster control, as well as technically adapted and optimized. The aircraft must be made all-weather capable for year-round and location-independent deployment. In addition, the current flight time is to be doubled and a modular concept for different payloads is to be realized. Since the system's operation takes place far outside the drone pilot's field of vision, an automatic collision avoidance system is being developed to ensure full integration into the airspace.
