Thermal Drone Video From SAR for Dementia Patient

Last night I had the opportunity to fly a search and rescue flight for an exercise where the scenario was a dementia patient had walked out of a residence and followed the terrain downhill till they became stuck.

Once the victim was located the student searchers navigated their way, with directions from the pilot, to the warm body victim. They then had to load a 175-pound dummy on a stretcher and carry them out of the woods to safety.

In these types of situations, I will use my human body isotherm settings and palette Color 1. For more on this setup, click here.
