SpaceTec Partners is delighted to announce that a new video for the ICARUS project has been released. ICARUS is a research project co-funded by the European Commission (total budget: 17.5M€) aiming to develop robotic tools which can assist “human” Search and Rescue (SAR) teams in the field.
Twenty-four partners will collaborate over the four-year project duration, which began in 2012, to develop state-of-the-art European solutions for saving human lives and speeding up the SAR process. ICARUS concentrates on the development of unmanned SAR technologies for detecting, locating and rescuing humans in disaster situations both in urban and maritime environments. These unmanned platforms are able to travel across land, sea and air in order to locate survivors and to participate in rescue operations.
SpaceTec is both the ICARUS project coordinator and is also responsible for leading communication activities.
