Considering the amount of time and energy spent on personal drone use it’s about time mankind harnesses this technology for the greater good. Such is the case with the Land Rover Project Hero, built out by the company’s Special Vehicle Operations unit for the Austrian Red Cross with a roof-mounted drone deployment and landing system.

In addition to this potential lifesaving setup, the system features self-centering and magnetic tech that helps the drone land safely while the SUV is in motion, a first of its kind feature that allows the rescue team to assess the environment as they drive. The floor of the Land Rover Discovery also slides out creating a work space while storing any rescue gear safely underneath. It’ll even remain connected in the most remote locations thanks to sufficient radio equipment as well. The project is based at the Red Cross training center in Erszberg, Austria where it is currently being tested for rescue missions during natural disasters. However, Project Hero could very well be approved in the coming year marking this as a significant step forward for worldwide rescue operations.
