Mass Rescue Operation
During the Mass Rescue Operation, Andøya Test Center used an Unmanned Arial System (UAS) to record video from the event. 100 personnel were evacuated from the CG Svalbard by helicopters to nearest beach, where they were received and triaged by the Longyearbyen Red Cross. Next step was a transfer to the rescue vessel MS Polarsyssel.
This video was made in 2014 in the SARiNOR project. This project assessed the status of the search- and rescue resources in the Arctic region. The video presents concepts of how SAR-resources may be organised in the future.
