World's First Purpose-Built 911 Response Drone

The Responder is the first-ever drone specifically designed for 911 responses. It integrates with 911 systems, computer-aided dispatch, and other essential emergency tools. When a 911 call is made, the drone can launch, fly at up to 60 mph, and arrive on the scene in under a minute. It can deliver lifesaving equipment like Narcan or EpiPens and provide live thermal imaging to .

Simplifying Public Safety with Integrated Solutions

Historically, creating a drone-based emergency response system has been complex, involving multiple vendors and various pieces of software. Resnick explains that the Responder drone simplifies this by offering an all-in-one solution—hardware, software, regulatory support, installation, and maintenance. “This is the first solution that's really end-to-end,” he says.

The Birth of Brinc Drones: Inspired by Tragedy

Resnick's inspiration for Drones stemmed from the October 1 shooting in Las Vegas. He was compelled to create technology that could assist in public safety after learning how the shooter had set up a baby monitor camera to anticipate first responders. This led to the development of Brinc's first drones, aimed at giving first responders better situational awareness in dangerous scenarios.

Responder Drone: Advanced Features and Specifications

The Responder boasts several advanced features inherited from Brinc's previous drones. It has a 42-minute flight time, multiple onboard sensors, obstacle avoidance systems, and robust autonomy software. It also features a 640 thermal imager, optical zoom cameras, red and blue lights, and a siren, making it a comprehensive emergency response tool.

Overcoming Challenges and Testing the Drone

Creating an outdoor drone like the Responder presented new challenges, such as ensuring long flight times and dealing with regulatory requirements. Resnick and his team set up a dedicated test site to fine-tune the drone's performance. They also partnered with Echodyne for ground-based radar to enhance the drone's detect-and-avoid capabilities.

Innovative Deployment Strategies

The Responder can be deployed from docks on the roofs of police and fire stations, ensuring rapid response times. It uses a mesh networking system and can integrate with Starlink for extended range capabilities. In areas with challenging terrain, additional repeater sites can be set up to maintain coverage.

Future of Emergency Response: A Network of Drones

Resnick envisions a future where every fire station and potentially every police station has a Responder drone. This network would provide comprehensive coverage, allowing drones to quickly respond to emergencies, assess situations, and assist first responders more effectively.

Addressing Privacy and Regulatory Concerns

Brinc is committed to using its drones for lifesaving purposes and not for weaponization. This focus on public safety and privacy is crucial to gaining community acceptance. Resnick also highlights the need for supportive regulatory frameworks to facilitate the widespread adoption of in emergency services.
