Under the title of "DRONES to the RESCUE", the CLOSE-SEARCH consortium, led by the Institute of Geomatics, has published a paper on one of the most influential navigation magazine, the InsideGNSS. The paper outlines the concept, development and results obtained during the European FP7 project CLOSE-SEARCH, highlighting the flight control and target identification requirements and results with EGNOS and multi-constellation GNSS, the aspects on safe navigation from hybrid, redundant navigation sensor systems and finally the requirements for precision-based integrity and geodetic quality control in UAV-based SAR missions.
The CLOSE-SEARCH project (www.close-search-project.eu
), funded by the European Comission under the 7th Framework Program, is lead by the Institute of Geomatics and gathers Asociación de la Industria Navarra, École Polytéchnique Fédéral de Lausanne, DEIMOS Engenharia, Institut Cartogràfic de Catalunya and Direcció General de Protecció Civil. The project finalized by performing its final test campaign
