The LARUS project is the runner up in the category Innovation and Technology in Maritime SAR of the International Maritime Rescue Federation. Find all winners and runners up of the 2021 awards here. Congratulations to all the finalists!
21/07/2021, Enge-Sande / Bremen: Together with our partners we are researching the technical and operational possibilities of 5G for use with drones. We support the project with our fixed-wing and multi-rotor drones. We are also working together on the hardware architecture.
You find detailed information about the R&D project here.
This project is founded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI).
14/07/2021, Bremen / Rotenburg/Wuemme: We have been working together with our partners on the LARUS-PRO project for round about six months. The project is financially supported by BMBF and controlled by VDI Technologiezentrum GmbH. Together with our partners, we are working on innovative and flying rescue equipment of the future, based on our drones.
We would like to inform you about a current posting from the BMBF to the project here (German only).
We are taking another important step in the company's development with this project. We look forward to more exciting months.
More information about the LARUS-PRO project will follow on this channel ...

We thank the project partners, the project execution organization (VDI Technologiezentrum GmbH) and Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for the successful execution of the project.
22/10/2019, Bremen: DGzRS successfully tests unmanned aircraft system over the Baltic Sea to support maritime search and rescue
Three-year research project to improve communication and data exchange at sea brings important findings to practice
Over the Baltic Sea, the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS), together with nine partners, has successfully tested an unmanned aircraft system for use in an emergency at sea. At the end of the LARUS (Latin: Seagull) research project, which was started three years ago, there is now an automatic fixed-wing aircraft that has already safely travelled around 660 nautical miles (about 1,220 kilometres) across the sea. An enhanced version could improve communication and data exchange in the coordination of search and rescue operations by the Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centre (MRCC) Bremen of the DGzRS - and thus save human lives - even under difficult operating conditions. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research funded the project as part of the research program for civil security.

30/01/2019, Bremen: The new S360Mk.II
We are pleased to announce that our new fixed-wing drone S360Mk.II is almost “ready for take-off”. Based on the proven design of S360 the new S360Mk.II is characterized by various optimizations. The most important innovations are: More space in the fuselage for sensors and/or fuel, better access to the integrated sub systems, capable to fly in rain and dusty environments. The S360Mk.II will be equipped optional with ADS-B transponder and onboard power generator.
The multiple payload concept, the outstanding flight performance from S360 and the capability for customization are preserved. The first three systems are in final assembly and will be delivered to customer or used in our running projects.

The S360 is equipped with new features and payloads to perform a flight test for the R&D project LARUS. After the successful flight on the 19th of April 2018 more flights will follow to validate the concept as a SAR drone for maritime applications. See below a video of the flight (3:37 min).
26/02/2018, Hamburg: REALISE enters next stage
The project partners are working on future business cases. In the case of major catastrophes, such as forest fires, the S360 is used in fleet operations and enables around-the-clock operation. The mobile take-off and landing system opens up inaccessible areas and shows the advantages of fixed-wing drones.
