DROP ‘N DRONE

ABOUT THE DROP ‘N DRONE

Airborne Concept’s Drop’n Drone has the unique ability to be deployed directly from an aircraft in flight (plane or helicopter). This is of great importance in hostile or disaster zones.

Hooked to a parachute, the container holds the Drop’n Drone with its wing in line with the fuselage. After opening, they rotate automatically and the drone is released.

The Drop’n Drone is then ready to accomplish its mission with total discretion, autonomously and with an unmatched endurance.

Multiple units can be easily deployed to perform complimentary tasks. For example, in humanitarian disaster zones, first responders or NGOs could deploy multiple Drop’n Drones each with a particular task to perform: instant mapping though photogrammetry; finding injured or trapped persons with an infra-red sensor; and providing vital communications network with a GSM repeater.
