French company launches ready-to-fly professional mini drone
DRONE VOLT, a French manufacturer of professional civilian drones, is expanding its product offer with the introduction of AIRSHADOW, its new mini drone, designed for use in applications such as surveillance, recognition, inspection, search and mapping in the security, safety, construction and energy areas. Programmable for automatic missions, this compact and sturdy drone can fly with a low visual and noise signature at speeds up to 90 km/h both day and night.
The DRONE VOLT R&D teams have integrated the latest technologies in order to meet the numerous requirements for professional and industrial applications. The new DRONE VOLT CONTROL application enables simple and rapid mission programming.
The AIRSHADOW is offered in two versions with a maximum range of 5 km, and real-time operator and machine data transmission is secured with AES-256 encryption. With its camera and infrared detector, it can acquire high-precision images and videos both day and night.
The AIRSHADOW is able to fly in difficult weather conditions such as moderate rain and wind speeds up 40 km/h, while the rigidity of its nylon chassis reinforced with carbon fibre makes AIRSHADOW more shock-resistant and gives it high robustness.
The AIRSHADOW is compact (31 x 33 x 15 cm) and easy to transport. No assembly is needed before use. The DRONE VOLT CONTROL application makes it possible to easily program different missions and monitor telemetric data on the control screen.
The AIRSHADOW platform offers two versions with either:
- a high performance electro-optical-infrared stabilised camera with 20x digital zoom weighing 180 g;
- a combination of a 160x120 thermal camera and a 2 MP colour camera with camera switching and picture-in-picture mode.
“The AIRSHADOW represents true innovation, guaranteeing data confidentiality through its encryption system,” said Olivier Gualdoni, Chairman and CEO. “Thanks to its new structure, it is extremely robust. Additionally, it has been designed to fly at high speeds in complete discretion.”
Founded in 2011, DRONE VOLT is a manufacturer of professional civilian drones with operations in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Canada, Denmark, the United States, Switzerland and Indonesia. DRONE VOLT offers its clients turnkey business solutions including different services and the training of drone pilots.
