Search & Rescue

CCI also carries out episodic search-and-rescue drone flights using an advanced Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual drone that patrols beaches and warns surfers and swimmers about potential shark attacks.

The drone has an emergency speaker system that allows CCI’s portfolio managers to communicate directly with swimmers/surfers that are in close proximity to large sharks.

A recent high-profile case study, believed to be one of the first examples in the world where a surfer has been warned real-time by a drone of a large looming shark, is enclosed below.
