Vehicles can be combined with ARS’ specially designed long-range hybrid UAVs in a fully integrated turnkey solution, or engineered to support users’ own unmanned aerial systems. They are equipped with everything required for a fully integrated and self-contained drone command center, including generators and redundant power sources, IT systems to support drone mission workflows, and air conditioning.

Long range drones for disaster responseARS has developed a unique long-range hybrid VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing) UAV that can be easily customized and equipped with a variety of payloads to suit the unique needs of disaster management, emergency response, and a range of other critical applications. The fully autonomous UAV can be remote-controlled or pre-programmed to automatically follow flight plans, and features advanced sense-and-avoid capabilities with integrated ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) for enhanced safety in urban areas and crowded airspace.

The long-range drone features a modular design that allows it to be fitted with a range of payloads according to specific customer requirements. These include:

  • Imaging systems for aerial photography and 2D or 3D mapping
  • Video cameras for real-time HD video streaming
  • Hazmat sensors for detection of radiation, and chemicals such as ammonia, chlorine, methane, ozone and carbon monoxide
