AUTEL ROBOTICS partners with the National Public Safety Drone Donation Program to assist departments with acquiring drone technology

At Autel Robotics, we realize that in emergency situations every second is critical. We also understand the important roles that a department plays in assisting their communities. Drone technology can provide lifesaving assistance to public safety departments and companies that respond to emergency calls. Unfortunately, many public safety departments across the nation cannot afford to purchase UAV technology. The cost of the technology can be prohibitive in constrained budgets. Autel Robotics and realize the value that our technology can provide for emergency responders. As a way to show our support for all that emergency responders do, we are donating our EVO drone to departments across the country.  Autel Robotics is dedicated to supporting our nation’s public safety agencies. Through donating we hope to improve the efficiency and safety of men and women in the public safety field, and in turn, provide enhanced safety to the communities they protect. Please contact us with any questions on our UAV systems as we are here to support your efforts!

NPS-DDP accepts donations from private citizens, drone manufacturers, or corporate donors like SkyBrowse,  Autel Robotics and Fox Fury lighting solutions. This program then matches applicants with donors to provide hardware and or software and even grant writing resources  to as many departments in need as possible.  There are no strings attached to this donation program, we only require the following: #1 Each department must have a licensed FAA 107 pilot available. #2 Each department will be required to sign a liability waiver #3 We would ask all departments to help us get as much media coverage of this donation as a platform to help educate others about the great work this program is providing. Please note top priority for donations goes to departments that do not already have an existing drone program in place,  Any department may apply.


The Partnership

    Thank You Letter Sent With Each Drone kit

Thank you for your service and dedication!

In behalf of AUTEL ROBOTICS & NPS-DDP we are honored to present this UAV technology to your department, knowing it will aid in your efforts to protect the communities you serve. In emergency situations, every second is deemed important. We also realize and value the important roll of the selfless
men and woman within your department play in assisting your communities to remain safe and out of harms way.

We know that drone technology can provide lifesaving assistance to public safety departments/companies with emergency calls. We also realize unfortunately, many public safety departments across the nation cannot afford to purchase UAV drones, as the cost of the technology is very high, this forces many to simply go without.

Autel Robotics and do not want any departments to go without the valuable tools they need to save lives . This donation is our way of supporting the important work that you do. Once you implement this UAV into service we would love to hear back from you on how it has assisted you in saving person and property.

This feed back will allow us to seek additional support so that we may help even more departments in need as the months and years pass. It will also allow us to make the case to the municipalities who budget public safety assets, on just how important it is to leverage this type of technology within public safety.

AUTEL Robotics is dedicated to supporting this nations public safety agencies and we hold your service in very high
regard and hope this new tool in your toolbox will allow you to operate more efficiently and safely as you deploy this
system when needed. Please contact with any questions on our UAV systems we are here to support your efforts!

Kind Regards,
VP of Autel Robotics
