Create solutions that help the RCAF's Search and Rescue crews save lives

Following on the success of Flighthax I, which focused on innovations in Air Mobility, Flighthax II challenges you and your team to help Canada’s Search and Rescue teams save lives.

There are over 1,000 SAR missions conducted annually, by 750 personnel including ground crew, air crew and SAR technicians. During the week SAR teams must be airborne in less than 30 minutes after a tasking has been received. This doesn’t leave much time for gathering information or planning the operation.

Faster response time, more effective search patterns and better information are all essential to saving lives and keeping the aircrew and SAR techs safe.

What clever idea can you implement to help our teams cover the almost 10,000,000 km2 of territory Canada occupies?
