Tethered border patrol drones give you access to an enduring, wide-perimeter view of borders to facilitate safe control of these critical zones. Rapidly deploy your system in vulnerable areas and gain immediate situational awareness of the environment to coordinate against criminality and unauthorized crossings.

Monitoring hundreds of kilometers of borders requires a heavy cost in human resources and constant vigilance. Aerial surveillance drones can be used as border patrol systems on strategic crossing points or dificult to reach areas, and remain on station at heights of 100 meters for day into night missions. Equipped with EO/IR sensors, these drone surveillance systems provide instant and permanent views of areas up to 10 sq kilometers, and ensure a secure data transfer through the tether directly to the operators. Their small footrpint and flexibility allows operators to change their zone of interest easily and cover larger distances.
