Aero Sentinel’s quadcopters are fit for different HLS missions. Tactical intelligence gathering require similar features as the military ISTAR missions do: covert operation, real-time video from day and night interchangeable sensors, quick deployment and turnaround time and user friendly operation.
Most HLS operations such as Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Forces and emergency situation first responders (natural disaster assessment, search and rescue) take advantage of the UAV’s high portability capability that answers immediate needs where time is of the essence. The difference of just a few minutes could save multiple human lives.
Other HLS missions involve training officers of the law, firefighters and other teams that have had no previous experience in operating a drone. That is where the easy, intuitive operation is greatly valued. With a minimal amount of training, a law enforcement or border control team can operate autonomous missions.
Using UAV systems is perfect for detecting and monitoring environmental hazards such as radiation detection, air pollution monitoring, and fire prevention. Some of these missions are not suitable for manned aircraft due to life threatening conditions.
Aerial surveillance of forest fires support the firefighting teams on the ground. Risk evaluation and analysis of the fire areas help determine whether it is possible to deploy firefighters and to where. Fire changes influenced by terrain and wind are monitored and reported immediately- therefore, saving lives. Eventually, a safe, calculated action plan can only be obtained with aerial footage.
Aerial Surveillance of Coastal and Land Borders is achieved quickly and with minimal effort and cost by using unmanned systems. The bird’s eye point of view generates a real-time map of borderlines without the need of sending personnel to long time and distant missions.
Pipeline, Oil, Gas and Power line monitoring
UAVs are very efficient when it comes to securing and monitoring large-perimeter areas around isolated sites, sometimes with no road access to them. Pipelines are high and can stretch upon thousands of miles; it would take a human being days or even weeks to inspect them. For a quadcopter it’s a matter of hours. Taking under consideration that any interruption of these facilities can easily diminish life quality, damage the economy and may even result in a life threatening danger, there is no better way to monitor them, but by an unmanned aerial vehicle.
