Jessup, MD – August 12, 2013 – UAV Solutions announced today that it has developed a tethered version of its Allerion 25 VTOL surveillance Unmanned Aerial System (UAS). The new tethered system, named Allerion 25-T, will be a valuable asset to police and fire fighters, border security agents and even the agriculture community with its range of 250 ft., rapid set-up capability, 12-hour endurance and modular electro-optical/infrared payload.
A tethered intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance UAS platform provides distinct advantages because it allows users to maintain physical control of the UAS, coupled with a direct command and control link via the tether, reducing the requirement for spectrum allocation and enabling secure data dissemination.
The next phase of the ISR variant Allerion 25-T will include the addition of a communications relay which will make the tethered Allerion ideal for use during natural disasters and events where communications are critical.
The Allerion 25 is a rugged VTOL Quad rotor UAS weighing less than 25 lbs. equipped with an electro-optical and thermal imager tilt gimbal dual capability camera. The system has been packaged in a custom enclosure that houses all required components in the trunk or bed of a vehicle.
