Insaat Fire Rescue
Russian engineer and inventor Dahir Semenov, also known as Dahir Kurmanbievich Semenov, has a long track record of imaginative and occasionally terrifying, visions of future technology. His company name, Dahir Insaat, is Turkish for Dahir Construction and was founded in 2006. The Fire Fighting Rescue electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) and ground vehicle one of his most intriguing designs, and is part of a larger number of ideas for gyroscopic vehicles. Semenov has designed a multitude of concepts from buildings, to ground vehicles, trains, eVTOL aircraft and more.
The fire fighting and rescue eVTOL/vehicle is capable of driving to a fire on streets, in the normal fashion with four wheels. However, if the fire truck encounters a traffic jam, the vehicle lowers two vertically centered wheels, lifts the four standard driving wheels into the vehicle, as the vehicle body is lifted by hydraulics above the height of cars and trucks. Then the fire truck can gyroscopically stay balanced while it drives in between cars and trucks, and bypass any traffic jam. When the road is cleared of any traffic jams, the four wheels are lowered, the vehicle's body is lowered and the two middle wheels are retracted.
Once at the fire, the roof of the fire truck opens, and the eVTOL aircraft, already staffed inside by fire fighters, will extend the propeller frame work and it will take off vertically. The eVTOL fire fighting and rescue aircraft has special cannons that shoot capsules of fire-extinguishing powder, water hoses and other fire fighting equipment. The aircraft has an enclosed telescopic gangway allowing up to five fire victims to enter the aircraft safely and be rescued.
The aircraft has 20 propellers and 20 electric motors which easily lift the onboard fire equipment as well as holding up to seven people. To power the aircraft, the vehicle creates the electricity and an long power chord is attached to the aircraft, allowing the fire fighters to have ample power while the aircraft is hovering and flying next to a burning building. When it is time to land, the aircraft slowly descends and lands in the cradle of the fire truck.
The inventor also reveals that the fire truck emergency vehicle can also be fitted with a mobile surgery suite.
- Aircraft type: eVTOL fire fighting rescue aircraft and ground vehicle
- Piloting: Unknown
- Capacity: 2 fire fighters and 5 victims
- Maximum payload: Unknown
- Propellers: 20 propellers
- Electric Motors: 20 electric motors
- Power source: Long electric cord provides power to the eVTOL aircraft
- Fuselage: Carbon fiber composite
- Gangway: Has an enclosed telescopic gangway allowing fire victims to enter the aircraft
- Windows: The aircraft has an open framework allowing fire fighters to put out a skyrise fire and rescue fire victims
- Landing gear: Fits inside a cradle in the specially made fire truck
- Safety Features: Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP), provides safety through redundancy for its passengers and/or cargo. DEP means having multiple propellers and motors on the aircraft so if one or more motors or propellers fail, the other working motors and propellers can safely land the aircraft.
