This Drone Zoom Lens Can Identify Your Face From 1,000 Feet Away

A popular argument used by law enforcement and drone enthusiasts, when people say they are worried about drones spying on them, is this: The cameras on drones just aren't that good, a drone would have to be right next to you for it to be able to see anything important. Say goodbye to that argument, forever.

This is the Aeryon HDZoom30, a camera that can be mounted to the SkyRanger, a small drone used by the military, law enforcement, and commercial operators. And it can see your face or license plate, even if you can't see it. Seriously, watch the video above. No other product like this exists—not on a drone that small, at least.

CBC’s The Age Of The Drone

Drones are a cutting-edge growth industry. More drones are sold every three months than the entire US military uses. Aeryon Labs is, featured in THE AGE OF THE DRONE, as a leader in this huge new business. By 2020 the US Federal Aviation Agency anticipates more than 20,000 drones will be in the air in North America – and that doesn’t even include amateur operators.

Aeryon Labs Introduces the Aeryon HDZoom30 Imaging Payload, Enabling Aerial Image Capture at 30x Optical Zoom

The Aeryon HDZoom30 imaging payload sets a new standard for clarity and precision in unmanned aerial imagery, enabling operators of the Aeryon SkyRanger sUAS to capture high quality video and still images at more than 1000 ft. (300 m) from their target. The Aeryon HDZoom30 makes it possible for ground crews to recognize a face, read a license plate or determine the thread count on a bolt at safe stand-off distances.

Waterloo, ON – February 23, 2015 - Aeryon Labs Inc., the premier manufacturer of VTOL small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) today introduced the Aeryon HDZoom30 imaging payload. The Aeryon HDZoom30 payload sets a new standard for aerial image capture, delivering capabilities including:

  • Up to 30x optical zoom
  • Up to 60x digitally-enhanced zoom
  • 1080p recorded video
  • 20MP still image resolution

Mapping Christ the Redeemer Featured on CTV Kitchener Weekend News

Aeryon Lab’s Dave Kroetsch, President & CEO, and April Blaylock Sr. UAS Engineer, spoke with CTV’s Krista Simpson about Projeto Redentor: Mapping Christ the Redeemer.

They discussed the challenges, lessons learned and successes of this very difficult project.

Aeryon Labs, together with Pix4D and PUC University of Rio de Janeiro, reconstructed the first accurate 3D model of Brazil’s most important monument: the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro. Using the Aeryon UAV platform for data acquisition and Pix4D’s image processing software for the 3D reconstruction, the project team surmounted various challenges to acquire the high-resolution images needed for the model.

Mapping Christ the Redeemer: Aeryon Labs and Pix4D create the first high-resolution 3D model of one of the world’s most recognized monuments

Aeryon Labs Inc., together with Pix4D and PUC University of Rio de Janeiro, reconstructed the first accurate 3D model of Brazil’s most important monument: the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro. Using the Aeryon UAV platform for data acquisition and Pix4D’s image processing software for the 3D reconstruction, the project team surmounted various challenges to acquire the high-resolution images needed for the model.

Waterloo, ON – February 18, 2015 – The Christ the Redeemer statue is Brazil’s most important monument. Located atop the 700 meter Corcovado Mountain the Christ statue towers over Rio de Janeiro, at 38 meters of height and with a 28 meter arm span. Accurate 3D reconstruction has not been possible until today because technologies, such as LiDAR, cannot scan the complete statue due to its size, location, difficult accessibility and challenging weather conditions. All previous 3D models and replicas of the statue have been designed by hand.
