How Project Hero is Using the New Discovery to Save Lives

May 26th, 2017 by

Land Rover has long relationships with the Red Cross and other humanitarian organizations stretching back to 1954. The automaker regularly supplies these institutions with the all-purpose, all-terrain vehicles they need to carry out their missions. With the new Project Hero initiative, that commitment is being carried one step further. Designers and engineers at Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) have actually created a new Discovery model specifically for the needs of emergency responders. Land Rover Charleston has all the details.

Red Cross Vehicle

Deploy Drone Technology

Drones have become an indispensable tool in disaster situations, particularly in remote areas. Drones can quickly fly just about anywhere and send back high-definition video for a rescue operation. The Project Hero model includes a drone landing pad mounted on the roof of the vehicle. And thanks to a few advanced technologies, a drone can actually take off and land while the vehicle is moving.

Aid Rescue Efforts

The Discovery vehicle is further enhanced with a sliding floor in the rear that can be deployed as an additional workspace. There is also strategically positioned lights for superior visibility at night, and a number of equipment storage solutions built into the cabin. Last but not least, there are multiple charging points throughout the cabin that can accommodate cords of all types.

Reach Any Destination

The new Land Rover Discovery was chosen as the foundation of this custom rescue vehicle for a reason. This totally redesigned model runs on a 3.0L turbo-diesel V6 that puts out a lot of athletic power. The power is combined with the automaker’s peerless reputation for building vehicles that are capable on any terrain in any weather. When rescuers need to reach the most remote location in the worst conditions, the Land Rover Discovery Project Hero is equipped to arrive.
