Wilderness search and rescue (SAR) is an activity that could potentially be well supported by drones, both as search tools and as devices to help with collaboration between remote helpers and workers on the ground. However, even with this potential, there are still usability challenges that need to be addressed. In our work, we are exploring potential use cases for drones to support wilderness SAR, as well as design solutions for wilderness-SAR drone systems. We discuss these explorations in this position paper, as well as some of our ideas and plans moving forward.
