Drones support Estonian emergency services during pandemic
Estonian Air Navigation Services, (EANS), has enlisted the support of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) manufacturer, Threod Systems and safety-critical technology provider, Frequentis, to support Estonian blue-light forces with a series of essential drone operations during the COVID-19 lockdown. The operations are supporting Estonian emergency services with medical transport and information gathering.
The Frequentis flight information management system (FIMS) provides the Common Information Services (CIS) function to the operation. The FIMS provides real-time situational awareness to air traffic controllers, enabling both manned flights and Threod drones to safely share the same airspace, providing controllers with the complete air situation picture.
