Long Range Surveillance

Long Range Tactical Surveillance and Monitoring
For mission ranges greater than 2Km or requiring longer time in the sky, FIXED WING and HELICOPTER STYLE drones are best. Primary factors in the selection of long range Unmanned Vehicles are endurance, range, payload capacity and type. The selection of the type of system is dependent on the situation and in some cases, personal preference.   

For some systems, combustion engine propulsion offers greater independence in long range flight, especially in remote areas.  
Below we have selected some of our favorite ISR platforms in the Long Range Category.

ISR Payloads combine one or more Infrared Sensors and One or more daytime cameras.  ISR payloads may also include laser range finders and other sensors depending on the need
ISR Payloads
ISR solutions can combine a number of sensors, but the most typical work up is an infrared sensor combined with a camera. Laser range finders or indicators can be added.  Scene and/or object tracking is a frequent request, allowing the operator to "follow"  a subject automatically.  Unmanned Aerial Vehicles using ISR have rapidly decreased scene up-time.  Using small UAVs, your organization can glean the first hand knowledge and situational awareness it needs to make timelier, more-informed decisions in tactical situations.  We partner with the best UAV ISR manufacturers in order to provide you with the highest quality solution. To learn more, visit our Sensors Page or contact us for more information HERE. Be sure to let us know you're interested in ISR Systems.


Infrared Sensors
I/R Sensors are perfect for subject monitoring in darkness.  I/R Sensors detect heat signatures. I/R Sensors can indicate for instance, recent use of automobile engines or heat emission from under a cover. 

Gimbals can include an Infrared sensor along side an E/O camera, or independently. Infrared Sensors cover a wide range of capabilities including resolution, zoom-ability, and sensitivity.  We work closely with our clients to find the Infrared sensor which best suits their needs.  To learn more, visit our Sensors Page or contact us for more information HERE.  Be sure to let us know you're interested in I/R sensors.

Electro-Optical Cameras
E/O Cameras are the building blocks of every surveillance payload. Small UAV designed E/O cameras are extremely affordable and can create rich video or still images.  Quality E/O Cameras vary according to manufacturer and platform requirements.  To learn more, visit our Sensors Page or contact us for more information HERE. Be sure to let us know you're interested in E/O Cameras.
