EndureAir Systems, a SIIC (IIT Kanpur) incubated company, was called upon by NDRF to play a critical role in search & rescue operations in the recent glacier burst incident in Joshimath, Uttrakhand. Using their fleet of advanced drones, the EndureAir team performed search operations in the disaster-hit area to look for survivors. They also inspected the site to assess the damage done by the flood. The team was also quick to adapt to emerging requirements as and when required and could put together a device that could be sent inside the tunnel and transmit live HD video to the operators, all in a short notice of less than an hour
During this rescue operation, the EndureAir team has worked closely with NDRF officials DIG Mohsen Shahedi, CO P. K. Tiwari, DC Aditya Pratap Singh, and Mr. Rahul Nayyar, Mr. Anagh Singh from AGNIi office (AGNIi – Accelerating Growth of New India’s Innovations) under Prime Minister's Science, Technology, and Innovation Advisory Council (PM-STIAC).
