The Vanguard

Long Range Surveillance Drone

ABOUT THE VANGUARD

The Vanguard, our most popular UAV, is a long range surveillance drone with a configurable Data Link video Range and flight times. The Vanguard drone system is our solution to security and surveillance needs. It is also ideal for inspection and detection where fine detail such as cracks and signs of wear are needed. The Vanguard has a dual camera configuration which gives you the ability to see what the Vanguard sees in real time and allows you to interchange between the two cameras while in flight. The Thermal camera allows you to detect objects, which you can then zoom in on when switching to the the 10x Optical Zoom camera. And with a first-of-its-kind dual antenna station, the Vanguard provides the clearest image even when it has been pushed to its limits!

  • SkyLink Ground Station has a 5hour battery life
  • SkyLink Ground Station waypoint control
  • Carbon fiber foldable and detachable arms
  • The SkyLink Ground Station can be mounted onto a tripod or a vehicle
  • Large slow spinning props produce low noise.
  • LAN option available for real-time IP data transfer to command and control or existing CCTV infrustructure

VANGUARD TECHNICAL FEATURES

Aircraft Telemetry & Status - The SkyLink Ground Station provides you with a detailed overview of the drone's status, such as the GPS location, Battery voltage and Altitude.

Automate with Waypoints- Fly autonomously along pre-defined flight paths and independently gather the required data.

Auto Take-off & Landing- Do not worry about take-off and landing. It is now possible to start, take-off and land the VANGUARD with a flick of a switch.

Photogrammetry & Mapping- Easily pre-define flight grids, after launching the VANGUARD, the software takes control, navigates and takes pictures according to the grid.

Virtual Fence & Safe Zones- The VANGUARD can be flown within its virtual shelter, from which it can´t leave the virtual pre-defined flight radius, or maximum height.

Aircraft Configuration - The Airborne app enables you to adjust functions such as: payload settings, cruise-speed, max-height and flight distance.

IN YOUR HANDS

Manual Control- The Joystick control module enables full manual or GPS assisted control of the drone. Pilots can adjust the flight direction, payload or camera angles from the ground, according to their specific requirements.

Tablet Control - The touch screen tablet has a simple, intuitive, user interface, which enables easy navigation and flight information. Automated "take-off" and flight programming are within easy reach.

GPS Assisted Flights- The pre-programmed switches allows the pilot to switch between various flight-modes, such as: GPS/Altitude hold, coming home and landing.

Payload or Camera Control - Pilots can remotely adjust the payload's pitch and yaw and have full control of all payload features from the ground.

Dual Operation - Focus on flight as well as view. In the dual operation mode, the system is configured with a secondary remote control unit to facilitate focus on both the flight and camera configuration. This allows users to perform safe and steady flights whilst delivering quality optimal data or imagery.
