By feeding emergency responders the exact location of people in need, satellite technology forms a key public safety component. Relief teams use technology such as the U.S. GPS system to funnel aid to disaster sites, assessing damage and using remote sensing technology to create maps for emergency services providers. Meteorologists also use satellite technology to predict and track storms and floods. The Emergency Response channel here on Satellite Spotlight is your source for breaking industry news, featured articles, case studies, white papers and podcasts covering international industry positioning standards for use by emergency and other specialty vehicle fleets, and how information provided by satellites helps reduce delay in the dispatch of emergency services.
