Aeryon Labs Inc., the premier manufacturer of small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) and Dejero, the leader in the remote acquisition, cloud management and multiscreen distribution of live video over IP, have announced a strategic technology partnership to enable secure, real-time distribution of HD video captured by Aeryon sUAS through the Dejero LIVE+ platform to allow remote, simultaneous, real-time access from any internet-connected or mobile device.
Remote access to live aerial imagery will result in more accurate and timely decision making in multiple industry sectors where Aeryon sUAS are already broadly deployed, including:
- Law Enforcement, where police units undertaking hostage and interdiction missions can provide remote, senior-level personnel with a unique vantage point, to better plan, authorize, and safely respond;
- Infrastructure inspection, in industries such as oil & gas, petrochemical, and power transmission, where inspectors can solicit opinions from off-site experts in real-time, allowing them to better assess damage of hard-to-reach assets and efficiently coordinate repair efforts; and
- Emergency First Response, allowing fire departments and disaster relief personnel to determine the safest response strategy, when every minute counts.
“Since introducing our first sUAS in 2009, we have developed unmatched expertise in aerial image capture in the most demanding applications on earth. Dejero brings a unique and complementary set of operationally-proven capabilities to ensure that the video captured by our UAS is presented to the right people, wherever they may be, without compromising quality of the image or the timeliness of delivery,” said Dave Kroetsch, President and CEO of Aeryon Labs.
The Aeryon SkyRanger is a small unmanned aerial system that is rugged and dependable in demanding weather conditions when other systems cannot fly. It offers long flight times of over 50 minutes, and its folding design makes it highly portable and fast to deploy. Its intuitive touch-screen interface simplifies navigation and camera operation.
Rather than trusting a single wireless connection to stream video from the Aeryon sUAS, Dejero’s patented technology intelligently bonds multiple wireless connections (3G/4G/LTE, Wi-Fi, microwave, and satellite) to minimize latency and deliver broadcast-quality live video – especially from remote locations where traditional connectivity options may be limited.
“We are excited to enter into this partnership with Aeryon Labs. sUAS present the capability to capture video from vantage points that are otherwise inaccessible, and the integration with Dejero’s technology will help customers in multiple industries unlock greater business value from UAS-based imagery,” said Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero.
A demonstration of the Aeryon and Dejero technology integration is being showcased at AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems 2015 in Atlanta GA until May 7. Visit the Aeryon Labs booth, number 2255.
