Unmanned Aerial Evacuation Rescue System
An Online Think Tank Project
Problem: The State of California is under dire financial stress. The CHP or California Highway Patrol is spending huge amounts of money on Helicopters to patrol the Freeways and Highways of the state, and these choppers cost millions of taxpayer dollars to purchase and maintain. There is too much downtime, too much waiting for European helicopter parts, and it's costing far too much for a large evacuation size helicopter for dual use; patrolling + evacuation.
Solution: Sell the CHP Helicopters and Aircraft and go to unmanned aerial vehicles, micro-helicopters (55 to 100 lbs.) and have several of these flying in a grid to serve the area with for traffic control, information, speeding tickets, and surveillance. Share information with other law-enforcement for a fee, and use four or more of these drones to airlift serious accident victims to nearby hospitals, or awaiting ambulances that cannot get to the location.
