New Zealand Fire Service Request for Information 

We have been contacted by The New Zealand Fire Service (NZFS) who are seeking information (Request for Information – RFI) on Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) to understand how they can add value if incorporated into future emergency service strategy. Note RPAS is a term that also includes Drones, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV).

The Fire Service responds to a broad range of incidents: examples include structure fires, rescue, medical incidents, motor vehicle accidents, hazardous substances and special service calls. The country side of New Zealand is diverse. An increasing proportion of the work performed by the Fire Service are medical callouts. This all leads to the Fire Service being first on the ground, and uniquely positioned to provide RPAS services to Government agencies, particularly other emergency services (please see the documents).

They are interested in how RPAS may add value to NZFS in the emergency management space. There request is for information only and will not be used to select any suppliers. They intend to gather market intelligence to inform business planning within NZFS (& potentially across Government Agencies).

Note, this information can also be found on the New Zealand Government Electronic Tenders Service (GETS) or in the UAVS Members Library via the link below.

New Technologies for exploitation of drones in modern cities for surveillance purposes 

  This small Polish company from ICT sector is looking for new technologies focused on using drones in modern cities:

- multimodal route planning – in order to improve dynamic passenger information systems by researching possibilities of using drones in public transport route planning and for gathering information about traffic and mass transport vehicles real time data.
- surveillance systems - the company researches possibilities of using drones for surveillance technology tools. Main advantage of drones, ability to fly make them one of best solutions for improvement of everyday safeness.
- ortophoto mapping and lidar topographic mapping - by using drones aid the company researches ways of preparing better maps and clear interface design for mapping solutions. It’s made through ortophoto – kind of scaled photographic map, on which it is perfectly possible to perform measurements as if it were a standard map. These photographs are shot by air with help of drones.
- precision agriculture – the company researches new ways of using drones for precision agriculture. By aerial photography and photo mapping with roll-stabilized camera, drone gathers data about crops and fields that’s relevant for precision agriculture.
The company is looking for license and partners to cooperate with on the basis of commercial agreement with technical assistance. The desired outcome of an international partnership would be improvement of technology offered to customers and growth in sales.
