Bespoke Land Rover Discovery launches a search drone from its roof | New Atlas

Drones are poised to make a very positive impact on search and rescue efforts going forward, with the award-winning Gimball, the hiker-trailing Sentry and Lockheed Martin’s Indago just a few examples of aircraft built for this purpose. Looking to make a contribution of its own, Land Rover has teamed up with the British Red Cross for a purpose-built search and rescue drone that launches from the roof of a bespoke version of the new Discovery.

The special version of the Discovery has been dubbed Project Hero and was built specifically for use by the Austrian Red Cross.
