Product Description

This preliminary concept is designed to deliver a sequential strobe beacon set to aid groups and individuals in finding their way to areas of rescue by firefighting and law enforcement officials.

 

Utilizing the stability of the DJI’s Phantom quadcopters, and the rapid prototyping services provided by Shapeways' 3d printing processes, this concept is a starting point in developing a unique tool to aid rescuers.

 

Consisting of a deployment platform and beacons containing strobe modules, the unit is carried by a drone and drops the strobe spheres along a path chosen by an operator/pilot.  An onboard electronic controller and the deployment remote work together to ensure that the strobe beacons are dropped in correct sequence and timing.

 

The individual flash beacons contain a battery and several rows of high powered LEDs.  Onboard circuitry, activated by a magnetic switch at the time of the drop, maintains strobe timing and helps control power consumption by the bright LED bulbs.  The electronics are housed on circuit board held in the center of the translucent sphere by springs 3d printed into the sphere itself.  These springs assure the survivability of the unit during the drop.   Shapeways’ rapid prototyping helps facilitate tweaks to the sphere design to find the perfect balance between sphere transparency, and strength of the strobe sphere.

 

In addition to the 3d printed assets, this concept will require some additional parts including MCU and RC boards, solenoids and aditional mounting hardware.  The particular uploaded 3d model contains the necessary parts to begin the fitting and prototyping process.

 

Utilizing the expertise of emergency response officials, and the ever developing technology provided by DJI and Shapeways, this concept can grow into a valuable tool in rescue and firefighting operations.
