Embry-Riddle Search and Rescue is a recently developed organization with members from many different degree programs. We are an all-inclusive org and welcome all who have an interest or passion for search and rescue systems. No prior knowledge or experience is required. Our goal is to develop a better understanding of how engineering systems can aid in search and rescue applications. Our teams plan, design, build, and test systems capable of locating distressed persons and coordinating responses to ground teams. Our current project (Project YellowTail) is a UAV that will be easily deployable and have the ability to identify a person by thermal signature, evaluate their physical status and environment, and communicate to ground in real-time in order to locate a victim and provide assistance.
