The main objective of MOBNET is to locate isolated victims during natural disasters and situations of emergency such as earthquakes, hurricanes or large snowstorms. MOBNET will also help first responder services to find lost people in general. To that end, the use of EGNSS (both Galileo early services and EGNOS) and DCT (Digital Cellular Technologies) plays a key role in situations where it is difficult, dangerous or even impossible to access the affected areas. MOBNET will be designed and built as a reduced SWaP, on-board payload for a UAV.
compared to other location solutions, Mobnet has an increased location accuracy.
It can be easily integrated into existing UAVs or mini-UAVs.
Designed to have a very low entry-into-service time requirement.
Ready to use state-of-the-art navigation services.
It makes easier for the SAR (Search and Rescue) teams to find survivors.
Rescuers’ life risk reduced.
