China Deploys Drone to Restore Communications During Flood Disaster

China drone to restore communicationsThe South China Morning Post has reported that China deployed the Wing Loong 2H military scale drone to restore communications during the recent floods, in another example of how drone technology can be utilized for disaster response.

Recent flooding destroyed ground-based communications infrastructure.  The all-weather, long-duration Wing Loong 2H hovered for five hours in torrential rains, “serving as an airborne base station that provided communication services for people in the area,” says the article.

“The Wing Loong 2H drone has come to your town and it can temporarily resume communications,” China Mobile said in a text to every mobile phone user in the area. “Please connect with your relatives soon and report your situation.”
