Cybaero Search & Rescue UAS

CybAero has announced that the company has signed a collaboration agreement with nonprofit search and rescue organization Missing People Sweden. The agreement allows Missing People to use CybAero’s remote-controlled drones to find missing people.

“It is exciting that Missing People has chosen us as a partner in their work to improve their search for missing people. This agreement proves our concept and that our technology attracts bigger interest. It also confirms that our RPAS helicopters can be used in all types of environments,” said CybAero CEO Johan Ahlström.

When needed, CybAero will provide Missing People with VTOL drone helicopters. With the help of CybAero’s UAVs, Missing People will be able to, in a more time-efficient and cost-effective way, search for people in areas that have previously been difficult to reach. The first step of the agreement is non-commercial and CybAero will only receive coverage for their costs. The intention is to evaluate the conditions for a long-term collaboration and a commercial agreement.

“We are very pleased to get access to CybAero’s drones. It helps us covering greater areas faster and easier, also in terrain that otherwise would be difficult to reach,” commented Kicki Erkers at Missing People Sweden.
