Short reaction times are among the most important factors in preventing casualties or providing first assistance to potential victims during large scale natural disasters. Consequently, first response teams must quickly gain a comprehensive overview and thus situation awareness of the disaster situation. To address this challenge, the ResponDrone-platform was developed within the scope of the ResponDrone project. A fleet of unmanned aerial vehicles provides critical information from the disaster site to the first response teams in real-time and can act as a communications relays in areas with disrupted communications infrastructure. The unmanned aerial vehicles are commanded via a web-based multi-mission control system. Data sharing between the individual components is realized via a web-based cloud platform. The ResponDrone platform’s capabilities were successfully tested and validated within the scope of several flight and simulation trials. This paper describes the components that were developed, integrated into a system-of-systems and demonstrated during the ResponDrone project and explains how the components work together in order to execute task-based multi-UAV missions. Further, the results of the validation trials are presented and an outlook on the next steps for further exploitation of the ResponDrone platform is given.
