The Atlas Pro drones from Atlas Dynamics can be flown individually or in swarms and are designed to withstand the freezing temperatures of the Norwegian arctic.

Swarms of these Israeli-made drones will help the Norwegian rescue services to patrol the arctic skies and assist in emergency and rescue situations in remote locations in .

The Atlas Pro drones come equipped with (AI) and a distributed communications system that allows the unmanned aircraft to be flown individually as well as part of a larger group of drones. When flown in a swarm these aircraft can operate independently from a pilot and they transmit information from the field back to the command center in real-time.

Using this so-called MESH technology allows rescue teams to quickly scan large territories and locate missing persons, or people who are in need of rescue. The plan is for the drones to replace the manned helicopters that are currently used for rescue missions.

The Northern Norwegian territories are made up of very rugged mountains, glaciers, and fjords, and this region attracts adventurous hikers. As a result, the rescue operations are oftentimes challenging to say the least.

Atlas Dynamics and the Norwegian rescue organization aim to develop more shared products later this year that will help in rescue operations, according to CTech.
