Superior endurance in critical unmanned aerial applications.

Effective replacement of manned helicopters with significant reduction of cost, risk and CO2 emissions.

Unmanned Helicopter Platform Drone

SDO 50 V2

Unmanned helicopter platform with market leading features – payload up to 45 kg, flight time up to 3.1 hours, range of 40 km (radio line of sight; expandable), autonomous take-off and landing capability and programmable flight path executed by autopilot. Made for day & night operations in adverse weather conditions.

Drone Aerial Surveillance

Aerial Surveillance

Unparalleled flexibility and efficiency, allowing for individual payload configurations including stabilized IR/optical cameras and missions under difficult or dangerous circumstances (e.g. bad weather, darkness, flying over hostile or otherwise unsafe areas) when manned operations are not feasible.

VTOL Drone Search and Rescue

Search & Rescue

Agile support of SAR missions using specific camera systems and sensors to locate missing people in inaccessible or hazardous areas (land or water), also in adverse weather conditions and at night. Once target persons are located, emergency gear such as survival kits, medical devices, food, rafts can be airlifted and dropped.

Inspection Drone

Inspection

Ongoing inspections of critical infrastructure such as high-voltage power lines, gas & oil pipelines and other far-stretched assets are critical for their uninterrupted operation and security. We offer cost-effective unmanned solutions using market-leading cameras, sensors and software to address customer-specific needs for aerial data gathering and processing.
