BCB International Ltd, the UK based manufacturers of military survival and protective equipment, have developed the SQ-4 Recon, which is capable of performing a wide range of tasks ideal for the military as well as security teams.
BCB International’s Robotics Projects Manager, Barry Davies, said: “The SQ-4 takes surveillance to new heights. Weighing in below 200 grams it can cover a range of up to 2.5 kilometers (1.5 miles) in less than 3 minutes and fly for 30 minutes. It can be easily flown using a tablet, which also displays the video and stills transmitted by its high resolution day/night camera. Its small size coupled with its 6 ultrasonic sonars means that it can be used to penetrate a building or narrow spaces as well as avoid objects.
“It is absolutely ideal for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance tasks. Flying silently, it can hover discreetly over a targeted area or ‘perch and stare’ using day or night vision. If the operator starts losing control or when the battery reaches 30%, the SQ-4 will automatically return to the launch point.”
