Short Range Surveillance

Short Range Tactical Surveillance and Monitoring
Short range missions are defined up to a distance of 1.2 Kilometers. These are typically a multi-rotor design with room underneath for a small payload. In general, cost of these systems can be directly tied to endurance (flight time). The longer it flies, generally, the more it costs. Other major considerations are payload requirements and ground control system (GCS). Unmanned Aerial Specialists has outlined several systems performing well for short range missions. Although there are many systems in the marketplace, we favor turnkey systems with an excellent support network.

Contact Us for more detailed information and pricing.

Sensors for short range tactical surveillance are divided into two categories 
Daytime (E/O or Electro-Optical) and Night Time (I/R or Infrared).  These two can be combined for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions. 

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.


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.
