Event 38 Unmanned Systems, an American-made VTOL fixed-wing drone manufacturer, has integrated a 360-degree camera option on its flagship E400 fixed-wing VTOL ISR drone.

Partnering with NextVision, Event 38 now offers a range of EO/IR gimbal camera options for seamless integration with the E400 drone platform.

NextVision’s gimballed EO/IR cameras boast field-proven technology, capturing high-quality visual and thermal imagery and video. These cameras enable live streaming directly to ground stations, providing operators with continuous monitoring capabilities.

The incorporation of a 360-degree EO/IR camera onto the E400 ISR platform enhances its effectiveness in various scenarios, including search-and-rescue missions, suspect pursuit, emergency management, and disaster response, such as swift water rescue operations.

Keeping the target in sight at all times

The E400 ISR, built with a military-grade carbon fiber frame, offers exceptional durability for rugged field applications. Moreover, its extended endurance allows for extended flight durations without the need for frequent recharging, enabling extensive coverage in a single flight.

This latest integration is particularly suited for surveillance and security applications, leveraging the E400 ISR’s electric propulsion and minimal noise emissions for discreet flight operations.

“The ability to rotate the camera indefinitely means an operator will never find themself limited in choosing what angle from which to observe a target,” said Jeff Taylor, Founder and CEO of Event 38. “In rapidly evolving situations it is critical to keep the target in sight at all times, and this 360 rotation capability allows just that on the E400-ISR.”
