ShadowQuad aids bomb squad in explosives removal

EPA-logoWhiteWe were called by the EPA to assist the inspection of demolition zones for the Santa Cruz County Bomb Squad. After the detonations and the smoke cleared, we sent in the new Phantom 4 to inspect the trenches for misfired ordinance. This was key in the safety of the officers in knowing which areas were still “hot” and to approach with caution. Of course a bird-eye view of the detonations was filmed at 120 fps for slow motion analysis of the process. The media can be used later for the EPA and other agencies in training and education of these type of situations.
