Axon has launched a charity initiative, the Axon Aid program, which seeks to help cities in the event of natural disasters by using its drone technology to provide situational awareness to government officials.

The company partnered with the Baton Rouge Police Department in Louisiana to conduct a pilot run of the program in preparation for Hurricane Barry, Axon said Thursday.

“Over 900 photos that were provided to us by drone imagery before, during and after the storm were very beneficial in helping us track potential problem areas within the parish,“ said Murphy Paul, chief of Baton Rouge Police Department.

In addition to drone technology, Axon Aid also utilizes Fleet 2 camera systems and a digital evidence management tool.
