The hybrid version of the SAMS solution boasts unlimited flight time, unparalleled data security, and the possibility to transition into a 45-minute free flight.
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.
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.
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.
Following a command from an operator, a triggered alarm, or if the onboard sensors identify a pre-selected object, the tether releases for a free-flight autonomous or directed mission.
The tether is released with the deployment of a parachute once transitioning into free-flight. After its mission, the Raptor will return for a precision landing in the ground station, even in GPS-denied environments
For example, the Nighthawk 2-UZ delivers a full HD thermal image and provides EO/IR object tracking, geolocation, video compression, IP Streaming, video recording, LTE, and license plate recognition capabilities.
EO/IR object tracking points the camera to track a subject within the camera’s range, ensuring the object of interest never leaves the view. Geolocation captures the position of the camera, its line of sight, and extracts the location of observed objects with unprecedented accuracy.
The ground station’s relatively small size and weight allow it to be rapidly mobilized and deployed from stationary and mobile launch sites such as a standard pickup truck or other vehicle configuration, traveling up to 25 miles per hour. The ground station is equipped with numerous temperature sensors, system health monitors, and four cameras for 360-degree situational awareness around the deployment site.
The Software can be securely accessed anywhere and at any time, enabling users to conduct missions from a command center desktop or in the field via smartphone, tablet, or proprietary controller.
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.
