BVLOS Operations
The integrated datalink module in Ziyan UAVs extends data communication and video transmission to distances of up to 30km. Combined with long endurances, this enables vast distances and areas to be covered in a single flight.

Emergency response

Quick Deployment
Immediate reaction is one of the most necessary elements during emergencies. The quick deployment times of Ziyan UAVs make them ideal for responding to emergency situations. Moreover, less requirements for take-off enables Ziyan UAVs to immediately arrive at the scene.

Monitoring Situations Anytime and Anywhere
Remote transmission of real-time video from integrated aerial and ground systems expands the value of unmanned applications to facilitate rapid decision-making at all levels of command, and improves the efficiency of emergency departments.

Real Time Effective Response
Disasters and emergencies pose complications that make it challenging for human personnel to carry out search, rescue and other investigations. Complex disaster conditions vastly reduce the intensity and impact of emergency investigations of geological disasters. Ziyan UAVs are effective in rapidly composing on-site information that in turn provides command with reliable and on-ground information to make informed decisions.

The Ziyan unmanned helicopter supports dual sensor cameras, night vision cameras, police/fire safety strobe lights, megaphones, searchlights, fire extinguishers and other accessories as payloads. The modular design makes the switching of payloads quick and easy, and payloads can be adapted and changed quickly according to different mission requirements.
