Public safety drones have a variety of benefits, the primary of which being the protection of human life. Using public safety drones, a scene can be assessed for danger before sending in police, firefighters or social workers. Using drones to observe critical situations has never been a possibility until now. Public safety drones can be outfitted with advancing imaging technology and sent into situations that would otherwise endanger a person. In order to extend the flight time and efficiency of public safety drones, quality motors count.
Uses of Public Safety Drones
- Scene Assessment
- Thermal Imaging
- Finding Hidden Threats
- Search and Rescue
- Wildfire Management
- Finding Missing Persons
- Event Monitoring
- Hostage Situations
- Evidence Gathering
High Performance UAV Motors
Whether using public safety drones to assess the spread of a wildfire from above or to go where no human or traditional aircraft can, quality motors are essential in performing these important tasks. When choosing high performance UAV motors, there are a variety of factors to take into consideration.
- Total Weight of UAV Including Camera and Gimbal
- Desired Thrust Capacity
- Type of UAV - Quadcopter, Hexacopter, Octocopter
- Motor Mount
Choosing the right heavy lift motors for public safety drones has a large effect on performance and flight time. Increased flight time and efficiency are important in public safety applications as time is of the essence due to the nature of the application. Having a public safety drone in the air for as long as possible is necessary especially in search and rescue and hostage situations.
What should you take into consideration when choosing quality motors for public safety drones? Motors should be designed specifically for high-thrust capacity and durability. High temperature, solid-core copper windings help protect your motors in extreme climates, which is mandatory in public safety applications such as fire fighting and mountain search and rescue. Choose a motor with integrated centrifugal fans for cool running temperatures and high performance capacity.
