Man-packable and immediately deployable for over-the-hill aerial intelligence in any environment, Aeryon sUAS bring secure and simultaneous tactical situational awareness to both ground forces and remote command. Advanced autonomous capabilities and simple touchscreen controls require minimal training for soldier, squad, or platoon level deployment.
Unlike fixed-wing UAS, Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) flight requires no launch equipment, enables fixed hover for precise observation, and facilitates low-risk retrieval on land or ship.
When you’re on the ground, in the middle of a mission, there is no time for second guessing – decisions need to be made quickly and decisively. Understanding exactly what’s happening on the other side of the hill – or anywhere within a 1.9 mile (3.0 km) range – ensures that your ground forces have the information they need to make the best decisions possible.
The Aeryon platform brings the world of aerial intelligence directly to the teams on the ground. The simple to use touch-screen interface enables any soldier to become an expert in tactical surveillance gathering. Real-time, secure streaming of digital video (day or night) to any device on the network provides the intelligence to the people that require it.
Carefully planning your next move is easier when you know exactly what your target is doing. Instant access to real-time intelligence of the situation – especially when beyond your line of sight – is vital. With the Aeryon sUAS platform, access to this information is literally a few clicks away.
The touch-screen GPS-based interface means you can fly beyond line of sight and see what’s happening anywhere within a 1.9 mile (3.0 km) range. Even night time flying with thermal or infrared imaging is possible since the flyer does not need to be within visual range to control. And, with only four small electric motors the system is quiet, and can hover in place while collecting real-time covert reconnaissance.
In some cases, the best tactic is an overt operation – you want potential hostiles to know that you’re watching them. To secure a site or manage large crowds of people, the best prevention can be constant, overt monitoring of the site’s perimeter. The Aeryon platform enables you to pre-plan the flight path and control multiple units simultaneously so that you can provide consistent and constant aerial security.
When responding to an emergency, one of the priorities is to understand how the most critical areas are affected and where they are situated - before putting any more human lives in danger. The Aeryon platform puts the power of aerial intelligence directly into the hands of the first responders. Real-time video streaming can show not only the extent of the damage but may also warn responders of additional hazards. Geo-tagged digital photographs provide an aerial record of the on-ground situation completely untouched.
