Nothing but water all around?
The Amphibious version of the Aeromapper Talon allows maritime operations by autonomously belly landing on water. It’s the perfect solution for aerial observation, data collection and mapping thanks to its dual camera set up and video link range up to 20kms.
Long Range real-time video downlink
8 Km2 (1,976 acres) per flight @125 magl
20Mp nadir imagery + HD video
BVLOS capable (+30 Kms link range)
Expand your operations like never before by using lakes, rivers, and oceans as airfields.
Pack the Aeromapper Talon Amphibious drone on a boat and head to those islands that were impossible to map before, or survey along 30km of coastline that were unreachable by land, monitor the amount of algae that spread over the lake or finally get to survey that impenetrable marshland, or search those bird populations with its real-time video system.
How does it work? The Aeromapper Talon Amphibious is fully waterproof, externally and internally. Even if filled up completely with water internally, it won’t sink, it won’t suffer any damage. Each component is waterproof and modular, minimizing maintenance costs. This redundant approach that guarantees repeatability and dependability.
The drone allows for easy operation thanks to its autonomous take off upon hand launch, autonomous navigation, and auto land.
Best of all, forget about paying an arm and a leg for a dependable – portable amphibious drone that are usually only a luxury of military budgets. The Aeromapper Talon amphibious comes in an affordable package and its components are modular and future-proof. Its rugged and durable construction allows for repeated use and tough handling and still being very easy to repair in the field.
Capture 20Mp stills or HD video facing down, or add the optional forward-looking camera with long range real-time video link of exceptional image quality. The forward-looking camera can be panned from the hand-held remote control to look sideways and lock on points of interest by loitering the UAV around them. The standard range of the video signal is 15-20 Km but it can be extended to 40km using our 24 dBi parabolic antenna (optional).
The forward-looking camera system comes complete and ready to use, including the heavy-duty Ground Control Station, with 10’’ LCD monitor and diversity receiver.
Best of all, you can still parachute down on dry land when required. The Aeromapper Talon Amphibious version also features our standard long-range capabilities for BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight operations) (+30Km control and telemetry links).
Up to 2 hr endurance
Exceptional wind resistance: 40 Km/h
Long Range video downlink (15-40 Km video link range)
BVLOS capable (+30 km link range)
20 Mp stills.
Dependable: Guaranteed survivability even with water intrusion thanks to its redundant design. Even if it gets full of water, it won’t sink and no internal components will suffer any type of damage. Marine grade.
Operate in offshore, flooded areas, rivers, lakes, from a moving boat, without ever setting foot on land. Easily hand-launch from any boat and recover easily from the water.
Parachute landing can also be used over dry land. The Aeromapper Talon is the only UAV in the world that belly lands on water, parachutes down on land, and carries a dual set of cameras for aerial observation and mapping.
Patrol large areas easily with the waterproof real-time video system with a link range of 20kms, extendable to 40km with parabolic antenna (Ask us for details). The system is delivered with a complete Ground Control Station.
Ideal for surveyors, research institutes, inspection, emergency responders, search and rescue, surveillance, wildlife monitoring, river and coastal mapping, conservation and environmental efforts, hydrography, marine management, fisheries & water management.
Autonomously belly lands perfectly everytime on land or water.
Fly far with confidence: if you are flying Beyond Visual Line of Sight or in extreme conditions such as high winds the Aeromapper Talon can also be equipped with a convenient Locator beacon (optional). Alternatively, the UAV reports to the GCS the last known coordinates.
