New Partnership Announcement: DroneControl

FirstResponder Arrives in Canada with Altohelix




We are thrilled to announce the Canadian launch of DroneControl FirstResponder, an innovative drone software solution that is set to revolutionize the capabilities of emergency services in partnership with the leading drone solution provider Altohelix. Developed with the expert input of first responder pilots and key market partners, DroneControl FirstResponder provides secure live streaming and remote control to improve incident response and protect lives.

This cutting-edge software empowers command center personnel to take flight control of drones using virtual joysticks compatible with touch, mouse, or gamepad inputs. It also allows for precise control of camera gimbals, ensuring that vital information is captured and relayed in real-time. DroneControl FirstResponder is a robust upgrade from the DJI Pilot 2 app, providing identical functionality but with additional features for the emergencyservices such as integration with what3words.


Security is paramount in emergency response scenarios, which is why our software employs Peer-to- Peer encryption. This ensures highly-secure, real-time video streaming and audio feeds from the incident scene to the command center and on-site first responders, a vital feature for swift and

informed decision-making.
