dc.description.abstractProject Icarus is an autonomous surveillance Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) prototype designed to aid first responders by providing rapid aerial assessment of locations affected by disaster. Additionally, Project Icarus is capable of restoring local Wi-Fi based communications during grid failure. Icarus has the capabilities to provide logistical assistance to emergency personnel by providing immediate aerial surveillance of ongoing dangerous situations. Furthermore, the Icarus platform operates on an umbilical system that provides a long-term aerial surveillance solution and can be easily modified to accommodate specific situations using its modular design. The low-cost system that does not require a drone pilot is well suited for disaster relief personnel, firefighters and police because of its ability to provide active situational awareness and communication. This paper will delineate the surveillance system used by Icarus, local communication restoration technology Icarus is equipped with, as well as the continuous operation capability by using a solar panel for battery recharging.en_US
