Game of Drones: Elistair launches a new tethered drone called Orion UAS
With a significant reduction in operating costs and personnel costs and extreme ease of use, intelligently connected drones are an excellent choice in terms of flexibility and wide scope of application. Designed for telecommunication and semi-persistent air surveillance needs, ORION UAS of the French company Elistair can fulfill the most demanding missions for law enforcement, public and private security, national security, asset protection or emergency communications and crisis management, It has a flight capacity of more than Ten hours, the drone integrates the patented micro-anchor system of Elistair Safe-T and ensures a continuous and safe supply of energy from the ground. With its high-quality industrial engines and multiple redundancies including autopilot sensors, motorization, power distribution, logic controls and an emergency parachute system, ORION UAS has been designed to withstand long flight times in demanding environments. The structure of the ORION drone is designed to withstand moderate to strong winds with maximum stability for its size factor.
In terms of sensors, it has a day and night surveillance camera that combines the stabilization of last generation gimbal and HD images with low latencies and an optical zoom of X30, so that ORION UAS can detect a person moving several kilometers away. By using both the Safe-T micro-tether with high-speed, interference-free data transmission technology and the leading industrial sensors from Flir and Sony, the ORION UAS camera is the excellent solution for constant aerial surveillance.
Fully automated, ORION UAS integrates redundancy and intelligent emergency procedures at all levels, allowing you to focus on your mission and data, while drastically reducing the risks of human error. With its modular structure, ORION is easy to transport and a few minutes are enough to assemble the drone and deploy it.
