Drones for reconnaissance missions A drone manufactured in France, in Toulon, has been serving the Bouches-du-Rhône firefighters since 2014, according to Nice-Matin. In the test phase, this robot equipped with infrared cameras allow visualization of the hot spots and the persons present on the scene at the time of a fire.
