China uses high-tech equipment to combat floods

The Chinese military is using high-tech equipment to combat floods, enhancing the capacity of emergency relief and ensuring the safety of soldiers. A team of meteorologists and hydrologists has been set up to analyze real-time images sent by frontline troops to provide technical guidance. Drones are being used for infrared detection of hidden dangers resulting from seepage in river dikes, producing 3D drawings and flying to difficult terrains where soldiers cannot reach to scout.
