SAMS drone-in-a-box Series

Autonomous Drone in a Box

Osprey SAMS

An advanced, portable, rugged, and easy to operate autonomous aerial monitoring system (aka "drone-in-a-box") that can be configured to meet any operational requirement.

The entire operation – from takeoff to landing – is fully autonomous and can be performed remotely without the need for on-site intervention, even in extreme weather conditions.

Smart Aerial Monitoring System [non-tethered]

We go beyond the standard one-size-fits-all solution and provide military-grade systems tailored to various operational requirements. Built by a group of former military and aerospace, robotics, and software engineers, the system is developed with maximum durability, portability, and autonomy in mind, making it a robust and versatile airborne security and data collection tool.


Above & Beyond

Government & Defense
Public Safety & First Responders
Commercial & Industrial
Military-grade autonomous drone-in-a-box solution customised to meet unique ISTAR, security, mapping or inspection needs.

The Osprey SAMS is part of our range of portable, NDAA 848 compliant [Drone-in-a-box] systems that are available in tethered, free-flight (untethered), or as the industry’s first tethered/free-flight hybrid solution.

All autonomous, easy-to-use solutions can be automatically deployed and commanded remotely from any location around the world.

Advanced drone-in-a-box

The Osprey Smart Aerial Monitoring System (aka “drone-in-a-box”) is a non-tethered and easy-to-transport Autonomous drone system.

Powered by a standard power outlet, the system needs 35 minutes to charge and gives the drone 55 minutes of free & fully autonomous flight time.

The ground station (“box”) is MIL-STD-810G certified and features an automated roof opening and closing system and is made from military-grade materials, making it mobile, rugged and weather resilient. The operation is simple and can be performed on-site or from a remote command center.

Rugged airframe

The Osprey Hexacopter is a durable carbon composite drone with motor redundancy for increased reliability.

Slightly overlapping propellers create a relatively compact form factor. The hex configuration makes the airframe ideal for carrying a variety of large payloads or cargo, up to 3kg, over longer distances, in adverse weather conditions.

3kg payload capacity
35 minutes charging - 55 minutes flight time
Mobile, rugged, and all weather protection
Easy Remote Monitoring Software
Artificial Intelligence features
360-degree situational awareness
Encrypted radio communication (LTE for backup optional)

A versatile eye in the sky

Developed with the support of the US Air Force, our military grade drone-in-a-box solutions are designed to go above and beyond – even in the most hostile of environments.

Our systems are field-proven, NDAA Sec. 848 compliant, and built with qualified traceable components. Only qualified [US/EU-made] parts are used in critical systems, such as communications modules and flight controllers.

A versatile eye in the sky offering unparalleled protection and situational awareness to those on the ground.

The Raptor SAMS-Hybrid and Albatross SAMS-Tethered enable tethered/free-flight operations from stationary or moving platforms traveling up to 25 mph, whereas the Osprey SAMS is a non-tethered drone-in-a-box with 55 minutes autonomous flight time.
