Nimbus UAV, combining lightweight and high endurance

The Nimbus 690 UAV is an autonomous drone capable of particularly long endurance. While most drones in the market allow a duration of flight of 15 to 38 minutes, with a payload up to 1 Kg, the Nimbus 690 has a 60 min endurance. In addition to this duration capacity, the UAV is also rain- and wind-proof, allowing its operation even during complex weather scenarios.

Anthea 202, strong detection capability and passive sensing

Anthea 202 is a mobile phone detector with integrated LTE communication connected to the LBASense system. Based on the detection of mobile signals, this technology has a very high sensing capability, detecting even devices hidden behind temporary MAC addresses (MAC randomization). Also capable of controlling the detection range (from 5m to 100m), devices can be tracked remotely and passively, regardless of the mobile operating system or the Telco operator behind.

Bringing two cutting edge technologies together for safety and security

Combined together in an integrated product, the final UAV is a perfect tool for intruder detection in isolated areas such as in maritime reserves as well as for Search and Rescue operations in national parks.

The system is available for rental in Singapore and for purchase worldwide, contact us to find out more.
