Drones can be heading to the Navy

Drones will be able to help the Navy with spotting people in need of help and to send emergency help in advance in the future. The commander of the vessel Thetis took part in a debate at the People's Meeting on the drone technology

"A drone with a camera, which is able to spot a person or a boat in the water, will give us a much better chance of finding and rescuing the shipwrecked", says Thomas Bay Jensen.

He expects drones to become as normal marine equipment for the Navy as GPS within a few years.

"A single mission (with a regular helicopter, Ed.) Would cost more than buying the drone," says the Commander to Ingeniøren.

Michael Linden-Vørnle, who leads the DTU drone center, agrees with the commander.

"Imagine a ship in distress, which is taking in water. Not only will a bigger drone be able to reach the crew, it could also be able to stay in the area and provide information to a rescue helicopter," says Michael Linden-Vørnle.

Ingeniøren is present at the Folkemøde and covers current topics of interest for its readers on the extensive meeting which will run until Sunday.
