A rescue drone designed to save lives, one of a family under development by an ESA-based start-up in the Netherlands. Inspired by the refugee crisis, the Avy company has been working on robust, long-duration drones capable of detecting people in distress and, if necessary, dropping life jackets, life buoys, food and medicine.

According to ESA's press on May 10, the company was selected from more than a thousand entries as a finalist in the international Drones for Good competition in Dubai.

The company is currently based at ESA’s Business Incubation Centre in Noordwijk, receiving technical and business advice.
