sUAS provide military and public safety users with immediate high-quality aerial intelligence, controlled directly by ground personnel. The Aeryon Scout™ micro-UAV can be broadly deployed with minimal training and operates reliably in extreme environments - not just calm sunny days.
For many commercial applications, collection of aerial imagery from the Aeryon Scout™ micro-UAV is faster, more accurate, and more cost-effective than satellites, manned aircraft or ground-based alternatives.

How is the Aeryon Scout™ micro-UAV unique?
Anyone Can Fly
An intuitive user interface requires minimal training and allows Scout operators to focus on the task at hand - no joysticks required!
Point-and-click touchscreen controls
Automated flight planning
Advanced fly-safe features
Fly Anywhere, Anytime
Airborne in seconds from a small case or backpack and weighing under 3lbs, the Scout operates reliably demanding weather conditions
Sustained winds up to 50 km/h (80 km/h gusts)
Weather-sealed | -30⁰C to +50⁰C operation
25min flight time with payload | 3km range
Integrated Payloads and Solutions
Imaging and custom payloads work in tandem with the system to ensure reliable and repeatable collection of high quality imagery and data. Integrated solutions include visual and geo-referenced image processing software. Make a selection below to learn more.
One area where the Aeryon Scout separates itself from other small UAVs is its intuitive touchscreen user interface and autonomous intelligence.
The system enables any individual to be in control of professional quality aerial intelligence, with minimal training.
The Aeryon Scout micro-UAV grants the user a host of advantages over traditional surveillance methods:
Piloting expertise: Piloting the system is as easy as pointing at a map - no joysticks or pilot experience required
Freedom of Flight: The unique touch-screen interface allows you to fly beyond line-of-sight, or fly at night, without losing the location of your flyer
Real Time Digital Video to any Device: Video can be streamed onto any mobile device with access to your IP network
System Controlled Positioning: Internally stabilized gimbals keeps the camera focused on its target
Snaps Together in Seconds: No tools are required during assembly
Use Any Map: Can be based on commercially available maps, or generated real-time
Autonomous System Intelligence
Unlike other small UAV systems, the Aeryon Scout™ is an all-digital software platform with advanced features previously restricted to full size unmanned aircraft. Automated features and advanced fly-safe controls allow safe, reliable operation at beyond line-of-site range, as well as advanced networking capabilities and system extensibility.
Pre-Plan Your Flight, Fly Ad-Hoc: The system can autonomously fly a pre-planned flight path or fly in manual mode
Real Time Digital Video to Any Device: Video can be streamed onto any mobile device with access to your IP network
Integrated Imaging Payloads: All payloads are seamlessly integrated, with independent stabilization and Click-to-Aim™ camera control
Hot-Swappable Payloads: Switching between payloads is simple with automatic connectivity
All Digital, All Secure: The digital network is optionally encrypted, and data onboard can be as well (should the vehicle be compromised)
Smart Batteries and Charger: The number of remaining flight-time minutes is displayed at all times and the system will return home and land automatically if user-configurable limits are reached
Interoperable: Ability to integrate the system with other IP-based network platforms
Importance of Safety
Flight safety is a paramount concern, no matter the operating environment or project. The Aeryon Scout sUAS offers superior safety over manned aircraft by removing the human element from potentially dangerous environments. With multiple built-in safety features, the Scout also leads other sUAS with respect to safety.
Intelligent Fault Handling: The system automatically detects potential issues - with configurable automated response behaviour such as a return-home-and-land routine
Automatic Pre-Flight Checks: The system self-calibrates all of its sensors and performs self-tests prior to takeoff to check for errors
No Fly Zones: The system has the ability to set up visual no fly zones
Self-Monitoring: Monitoring battery levels, in-flight wind speeds, and other system and environmental conditions are automatically handled by the system
Battery Communication: Displays battery power remaining and minutes of flight-time available
