Quantum-Systems’ Innovations 

Quantum-Systems’ official website states that the company integrates the features of airplanes and helicopters into its UAVs. 

Aside from unmanned aerial vehicles, the German drone maker also works on advanced docking stations, which can automatically charge and deploy drones. 

Thanks to these docking stations, UAV operators can send their drones to emergencies easier and faster.

If these flying machines can get to the affected, firefighters and other responders will have an idea of what they will deal with before they arrive. 

This means that Quantum-Systems’ automatic docking stations can benefit victims and their rescuers at the same time.
