Aerones is the emergency services’ new best friend. The Latvian drone is one of the world’s strongest and can be used to do dangerous jobs that are out of human reach. In May 2017, the company initiated the first-ever human skydive from a drone, when Ingus Augstkalns was carried to a height of 330 metres before being let free and parachuting to the floor. Whilst this may just sound like an elaborate stunt, the ‘drone jump’ proved to Aerones that its drone could be effective in disaster zone search and rescue missions.
DJI is a world-leading manufacturer of commercial unmanned aerial vehicles (commonly known as "drones") for aerial photography and videography. It also designs and manufactures camera gimbals, action cameras, camera stabilizers, flight platforms, and propulsion systems and flight control systems. The company's products have also been used by militaries and police forces, as well as terrorist groups, with the company taking steps to limit access to the latter. US government institutions have issued statements discouraging their internal use of DJI products, but as of 2020, various agencies at the local and federal level continue to use DJI products.
