Robots to the Rescue

From assessing damage to helping firefighters and rescue workers save lives, robots are playing an increasingly critical role in disaster management. Descendants of A&D innovation, these unmanned vehicles can be deployed to fly, tunnel, swim and crawl into places people can’t—or shouldn’t—go, providing invaluable aid to victims and protection for rescue teams.

Additionally, the rapid speed at which they can be deployed significantly accelerates the long-term recovery process, helping communities get back on their feet up to three years faster.
