Scalable DFR Requires Trusted Digital Weather Services

Drone as First Responder (DFR) programs, in which a remote pilot in command (RPIC) can instantly activate a drone in response to a 911 call to provide incident awareness and assessment before first responder deployment, has taken hold. Many public safety agencies have these programs. Those who don’t have them, want them. With advances in technology, DFR will soon transition to the point where one RPIC will remotely fly several drones, beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). These changes to operational constructs demand a related evolution in weather monitoring methods. Read more about how digital weather monitoring will make DFR more scalable:
