A tethered drone supplied by an automatic power unit to carry out long-lasting aerial observations. This system is ideal for crowd control, critical infrastructures monitoring or tactical operations follow-up.
PROTECT POPULATIONS, LANDS & NATIONAL INTERESTS
In a globalizing world, nations face a wide range of threats. Armed forces must be able to know what kinds of threats may be hanging over the safety of populations, lands and national interests in order to better anticipate and intervene if necessary.
Azur Drones has developed tethered and automated drone solutions to help armed forces during internal and external operations.
TETHERED DRONES FOR DEFENSE
Tethered drones provide a reliable support during military operations. Connected to an automatic power unit, they offer an unlimited observation time and avoid risks of battery failure, malicious jamming or electromagnetic disturbance. The optical fiber contained within the cable ensures a secure data transmission with no risk of hacking.
Suited with high performance EO and IR sensors, tethered drones are able to detect an approaching enemy up to 10 km and carry out surveillance missions in both day and night environments. They are also fitted with target tracking, motion and hotspot detection functions, making them ideal tools to secure military facilities or follow tactical operations in the field.
ACCESS TO RESTRICTED AREAS
Powerful aerial viewpoints, tethered drones provide access to restricted areas. Armed forces can follow video feedbacks from a rugged tablet or a PC while being protected from harms.
AUTONOMOUS DRONES FOR OPERATING CENTERS PROTECTION
Autonomous drones are especially useful to strengthen the protection of critical infrastructures such as military bases or decision-making centers. In the case of a security breach, they automatically take-off to assess the situation without human intervention. They are also able to carry out daily scheduled patrols. Armed forces can follow video feedbacks directly in the security control station.
If an alert is triggered, automated drones allow a greater effectiveness. Faster than any human inspection, they promptly provide real-time video feedbacks of designated areas and help armed forces in response to an emergency.
Fitted with EO/IR sensors, automated drones operate 24/7, in any weather. Those sensors allow to detect a human or a vehicle several hundred meters away and help to estimate the threat.
EXAMPLES OF USE CASES
Autonomous and tethered drone solutions offer countless opportunities for armed forces and meet many use cases:
MILITARY OPERATION CENTERS
Perimeter securing, information gathering…
INTERNAL OPERATION MISSIONS
EXTERNAL OPERATION MISSIONS
Population assistance, reconnaissance missions…
OUR SYSTEMS FOR DEFENSE
A fully autonomous solution perfectly suited to conduct automatic patrols and quick situational assessments in sensitive sites such as nuclear plants, data centers, or ports. Valuable aerial viewpoint, this drone can also provide a profitable assistance in the case of an intervention.
