Our goal is to contribute to the forest fire surveilance using dedicated, customized, unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), also kown as Drones. High autonomy, solar powered, surveillance drones will scout the forests according to dedicated flight routines. Whenever the battery starts running low, it has the capability to attach itself to high altitude spots in strategic locations, using a special set of legs, and continuing surveillance while recharching the battery.
