UAS Critical in California Wildfire Fight

UAS Critical

Unmanned aircraft systems were instrumental this season in fighting wildfires, which scorched more than 8.8 million acres and cloaked the Pacific Northwest in smoke and ash into October. From small quadcopters to fixed-wing aircraft, drones have been able to detect, contain and even extinguish fires faster and with greater safety than manned aircraft. They give firefighters a bird’s-eye view of the terrain and help them determine where a fire will spread.

According to Chad Runyan, acting manager of the U.S. Forest Service’s unmanned aircraft systems program, manned aircraft have long been used to survey wildfires and drop retardant, but they can’t fly in poor conditions and are often in short supply. “The sheer cost of operating, maintaining, and training is huge, so we run out of aircraft real quick,” he said.

Infrared camera-equipped UAS can peer through smoke, Runyan said, and if a fire closes in on a crew, UAS can identify a quick escape route. “If we have a group of firefighters trapped, we can easily send three or four drones up there,” he said. “The opportunities are endless.”

CHP Crew Captures Dramatic Rescues on Video

CHP Crew

A California Highway Patrol (CHP) helicopter crew had to depend on night vision technology to rescue a man who had fallen from a cliff onto a beach in early November. The 34-year-old San Francisco man was hiking when he slipped on the rocks and tumbled, suffering leg injuries. When the helicopter arrived, the man was at the bottom of a 300-foot cliff. Because of darkness, the crew had to rely on night vision technology to make the rescue. The helicopter hovered approximately one foot above a rocky shoreline and deployed a paramedic. The paramedic assessed the man for injures and assisted him into the hovering helicopter. He was flown to a nearby landing zone where he was transferred to a waiting ambulance. View a video of the rescue.

Several days later, CHP rescued a woman stranded on a mountain while horseback riding. CHP maneuvered its helicopter into the air 75 feet above where the woman had fallen from her horse and lowered a paramedic to facilitate the rescue. CHP and rescuers from the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District worked together to fit the woman into a rescue device, and she was transported about 2 miles to an ambulance and taken to a nearby hospital with moderate injuries. View a video of the rescue.

New FAA Guidance for Electronic Flight Bags

New FAA

An EFB is an electronic information management device that helps flight crews perform flight management tasks more easily and efficiently with less paper. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued an updated Advisory Circular (AC) for hosting electronic flight bag (EFB) applications on both portable devices and installed equipment. The AC includes significant changes from the last guidance in May 2014 that offer industry new EFB applications and the ability to manage their EFB programs with significantly less FAA involvement.

The FAA worked closely with industry, other regulatory authorities, and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Operations Panel to harmonize EFB guidance. Specifically, the new policy eliminates all guidance associated with EFB classification, clarifies the definition of an ‘EFB’ and reorganizes EFB application software types according to safety importance.

This newest guidance document also made two significant changes requested by aviation stakeholders. First, the FAA is removing its previous prohibition on the display of aircraft location during flight on various EFB applications. Previously, this function was only available on the ground. In addition, new EFB program management guidance will permit the operator to make many of the day-to-day changes to EFB applications without having to contact their FAA principal inspector.

Utah DPS Has Busy Year With New Hoist

Utah DPS

The Utah Department of Public Safety (DPS) air bureau, which began flying a helicopter outfitted with a hoist in 2016, reported it performed more than 30 rescues in its first year of operation. “This past year was just kind of a shocker to us,” DPS Pilot Brett Hutchings said. “This is a brand new aircraft and we’ve already put 600 hours on it. In some cases, it’s the difference between life and death.”

DPS was expecting about four or five missions in its first year with the hoist. Department numbers show the team performed 38. “Star 9” joins Intermountain Healthcare’s LifeFlight as the state’s only hoist rescue operators. LifeFlight has also seen an increased pace of hoist rescues, performing 16 in 2015, 22 in 2016 and 27 so far in 2017.

Dubuque Public Safety Units Add UAS

Dubuque Public

First responders in Dubuque, IA, have added unmanned aircraft systems to help with search and rescue efforts. A UAS purchased by the fire department will also be available in various emergency situations. “One of the scenarios we may encounter is someone that's missing or lost — actually get it up in the air and take an aerial view of our surroundings that we're trying to search,” Fire Department Captain Phil Arensdorf said. The aircraft will also be used at fire scenes and during inspections. The UAS is capable of capturing infrared images and is intended to keep first responders safe in hazardous situations.

The Dubuque Police Department recently purchased a UAS, to be used to search for suspects and lost children. The department said having a view from above will be helpful in many ways, such as finding discarded weapons on roofs and recreating crime and crash scenes.

Currently, both departments are training to fly the UAS. Three firefighters and three officers are certified as pilots with the Federal Aviation Administration. The cost of each drone was about $9,000. The police department paid for its UAS with forfeiture funds.

North Carolina Agency Uses UAS to Find Missing Woman

North Carolina

The Randolph County (NC) Sheriff’s Office used an unmanned aircraft system to find an 81-year-old woman with dementia who was reported missing in early November. The woman said she became confused after she strolled to a nearby river; Officer Adam Krolfifer used a police-issued UAS to locate her just 25 minutes after receiving the report.

The Randolph County Sheriff's Office has had the drone for a little over a month, and it has proven useful. Police have used it to document two homicide cases and capture a suspect who ran during a drug test. The sheriff's office said it plans to equip the drone with infrared capabilities so it can locate individuals more accurately with heat signatures.

Dutch Deploying Police Helicopters More Often

Dutch Deploying

According to recently released statistics, Dutch police helicopters were mobilized 2,082 times in 2015 and more than 3,121 times to date in 2017, a projected increase of about 50 percent. The Netherlands Police Aviation Service operates eight helicopters mainly out of Schiphol Amsterdam and Rotterdam-The Hague Airport.

Arjen Stobbe, who manages helicopter operations in Schiphol, said the aviation unit also has been more successful. “We count [the increase] only when we really made a difference, when the arrest was carried out only by our intervention,” he says. “Cooperation with the ground forces is constantly improving.”

Australia’s PolAir Issues Challenge for Charity

Australia PolAir

The New South Wales Police Aviation Support Branch in November challenged local emergency services and law enforcement agencies worldwide to “Stuff Your Chopper” for a great cause. Stuff Your Chopper calls on organizations to fill an aircraft with items for a nominated charity. This year, the challenge was extended to all emergency services, whether fire truck, ambulance, boat or rescue vehicle operators.

PolAir staff collected an aircraft worth of donations for Foodbank NSW and ACT, which will use the donations to provide assistance to those falling on hard times during the holidays. Foodbank is a non-profit organization established in 1992 that acts as a pantry to charities and community groups providing food to those in need.

Ohio Agency Adds Two UAS

Ohio Agency

The Findlay (OH) Police Department recently purchased two unmanned aircraft systems and other equipment to be used for surveillance, crowd control and preventing theft. The equipment “is going to give officers the ability to see what’s going on all around them,” according to Lieutenant Ryan Doe. In addition to the UAS, the police department purchased a mobile surveillance trailer for about $45,000.

The department intends to use the UAS to view crime scenes and crashes, track suspects through wooded areas and cornfields using infrared camera technology and survey crowds during large events. “We’re looking into how other departments use drones,” Doe said. “We’re looking into how we can better use them.” The police department and the city water department shared the cost of the UAS.

Missouri Department to Add UAS

Missouri Department

The Wentzville (MO) Police Department is in the process of adding an unmanned aircraft system to its crime-fighting arsenal. “Right now, we’re doing all our research, setting the foundation. And we’ve established our mission, developed our policy, and looked at the kind of systems we might want to operate,” Wentzville Police Chief Kurt Frisz said.

Frisz said the unmanned aircraft would be useful for missing person searches and crime scene reconstruction. Once the Wentzville Police Department chooses its platform, it will choose the officers to operate them. “I’m going to train a minimum of eight operators, so that way it’s available on all shifts,” Frisz said.

Kern County Helicopters Assist in Wildfire Fight Around California

Kern County

The Kern County (CA) Fire Department in late October sent one of its night-equipped helicopters to assist in the devastating Tubbs Fire, which killed dozens of people and burned 110,720 acres as it swept across Sonoma, Napa and Lake counties. The helicopter traveled from more than 300 miles away to assist strapped Sonoma County emergency services and fire departments.

Only two California Highway Patrol helicopters in the region are capable of flying at night, and neither is equipped to drop water or fire retardant. Kern County operates two Bell UH-1H helicopters that are equipped for night flying and can perform operations such as water drops, hoist rescues and transportation of up to 11 people, including the pilot.

Indiana Police Increase Traffic Enforcement Air Support

Indiana Police

Three times in two weeks in mid-November, the Indiana State Police (ISP) Aviation Section deployed a fixed-wing aircraft to assist in statewide traffic enforcement efforts. ISP Sergeant Lee Wright piloted the section’s Cessna 172 Skyhawk to the Putnamville District and joined forces with local officers on Nov. 23. Wright detected numerous speeding vehicles during the operation and radioed units below and guided them to the target vehicle. During a three-hour period, troopers issued 14 traffic citations and 12 warnings, did four commercial vehicle inspections, and conducted one vehicle search, ISP officials said.

Police Scotland Plans UAS Purchase

Police Scotland

Police Scotland is planning to buy several unmanned aircraft systems equipped with high-resolution cameras. Tender documents reveal plans to spend more than $150,000 on UAS for the force’s Air Support Unit, which currently consists of one helicopter.

Police Scotland said the drones would enhance the unit’s ability to “quickly deploy resources to incidents such as missing person searches and crowd monitoring, obtaining live, detailed imaging of search areas and significantly reducing deployments.” The tender specifies the UAS should have a “minimum of six rotors” as well as a tracking device, satellite positioning system and a high-definition camera capable of both daylight and thermal imaging.

Burbank Police Arrest Man for Laser Pointer Use

Burbank Police

A Glendale, CA, man was arrested in mid-November after he allegedly shined a laser at a police helicopter, authorities said. The helicopter, operated by the Burbank and Glendale Police Departments, was flying over a hillside area when it was struck by the laser. Sergeant Derek Green of the Burbank Police Department said the helicopter crew determined the laser originated from an apartment building. Officers were sent to the area and encountered a 32-year-old who admitted he shined the laser at the helicopter. Police confiscated the device he used, and the man was arrested on suspicion of pointing a laser at an aircraft while in-flight.
