SkyRanger R60

Rugged. Reliable. Proven.

A workhorse UAS for ISR in the most demanding conditions.

The SkyRanger R60 sets the standard for real-time, secure, aerial intelligence across a wide range of mission-critical applications from clandestine tactical missions, to search and rescue operations, to commercial inspections and more.

R60s are deployed with over 20 militaries and in use with public safety and industrial operators in over 30 countries.

Technology & Features

A ruggedized, IP-53 rated, carbon fiber and reinforced polycarbonate folding airframe makes the R60 both robust and quick to deploy. But there’s more to this UAS than meets the eye. Hover over the red circles below to see for yourself.

Intelligent Flight Control & Propulsion System

Delivers reliable performance in demanding conditions like high winds, extreme temperatures and inclement weather.

Patented Folding Airframe

Compact, folding design is easy to transport and is deployable in minutes by a single operator without tools.

Advanced Imaging Payloads for Long-Range ISR

Infrared and zoom imaging payloads deliver electro-optical and infrared imagery and video for versatility in day or night missions. R60’s dedicated quad core processor and GPU provides real-time onboard image and video processing.

Advanced Security & Encryption

A secure, all digital network provides AES-256 encryption so you can rest easy that your data is secure and not being shared without your consent.

Dependable in Extreme Environments

Rain? Sleet? Snow? No problem.

The R60’s water-resistant airframe and payloads ensure safe and reliable operations in extreme environments and inclement weather – or in this case, under a firehose.

Rock solid in high winds.

With its industry-leading high wind tolerance, the R60 delivers stable operations in sustained 40 mph (65 kph) winds and gusts up to 55 mph (90 kph) so you can deploy when and where you need to.

State-of-the-Art Software

Vector Target Tracking

Aeryon’s Vector Target Tracking software automatically targets and tracks moving objects up to 3 miles away. The tracking algorithm adapts in real-time to changes in target shape and maintains a hold on the target even when its position changes or another object obstructs the view.

  • Moving Target Indication of up to 10 Objects
  • In Both EO and IR
  • Calculate Target Heading and Speed

Automatic In-Air Replacement (AIR)

Gain persistent eyes on target with AIR which enables a fully charged, ready to launch SkyRanger to automatically replace another airborne SkyRanger when its battery is depleted or it needs to land.

AIR also enables real-time payload swaps for when conditions change (daylight into night operations) where a SkyRanger flying an EO/IR Mk-II replaces a SkyRanger flying a HDZoom 30 for improved nighttime ISR.
