“Pathfinder”Auxiliary fire UAV

This is a UAV designed for fire rescue. The UAV is attached to the headstock at top of fire vehicles, which can enter into a fire scene in the first time after fire happens.
The UAV can detect the vital signs and fixes their positions by the life detection instrument in its body during a rescue, and then leaves fluorescent light signs with a strong penetrating power to guide firemen rescue fast.
This UAV helps firemen save time because it directly orientates the site to be rescued. It can shorten the rescue time and improve the survival rate of the rescued persons.
