Our drones are semi-small, portable and hand-launched solutions, capable of generating reliable and high precision data and situational awareness. All our UAV solutions are extremely user-friendly both when operating and deploying the aircraft. 

Heidrun

LIGHT WEIGHT & LONG ENDURANCE

The Heidrun UAV system is very unique due to its multipurpose design. It is the ideal partner for both surveillance and mapping assignments. With the accessories below, the platform becomes even more versatile, as the drone is capable of reaching up to 25+ km of live video feed and full controls, streaming the video feed to remote decision-makers and generate new map material.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Heidrun EO/IR The Heidrun is a battle-proven, fixed wing mini drone for low-altitude surveillance intelligence missions. It is designed for operations in complex environments and with high mobility, and rapid and easy launching in mind. Achieving up to 35km of live video feed (with Long Range Antenna Tracker), it is ideal for collecting immediate data from any mission-critical area without exposing the operator to any danger.


The tactical drone is ultra mobile and can be rapidly deployed in the field for low-altitude drone reconnaissance or surveillance. It is operated by an easy-to-use touchscreen navigator with a precise GPS, or by joystick and a separately operated 2-axis stabilized gimbal system. SPECIFICATIONS

    • Flight time 1:30h
    • Hand launched
    • Deployment time 5 min
    • Deep-stall landing within 7.5 - 12m radius

-------------------------------------------------------------

Heidrun Mapping

Heidrun Mapping is an easy-to-use drone for precision mapping, surveying and terrain reconnasaince. The man-portable UAV provides large terrain coverage due to its extensive endurance and high cruising speed and is one of the most reliable drone solutions on the market.

Whether you are looking for a drone for photogrammetry or compiling GIS data, the UAV is fully applicable for both and offers a completely autonomous drone system for all mapping missions, which enables you to focus your energy on using and analyzing data, rather than working out how to gather it.

Once the mission planning is completed the aircraft is hand launched and will carry out the mission and return to base where it lands vertically (deep stall) with high precision.

SPECIFICATIONS

    • Flight Time 2:30h
    • Hand launched
    • Deployment time 5 min
    • Dataset absolute accuracy: 1,5cm/4cm
    • Deep-stall landing within 7,5-12m radius

-------------------------------------------------------------

Heidrun Radio Relay

Heidrun Radio Relay is a part of our vision to provide smart enhancement of the situational awareness for mounted and dismounted infantry. Heidrun Radio Relay will enable UAVs to improve the mission planning and execution phase while increasing the safety of the units.

Today’s communication relays are complex and heavy or simply ineffective in complex areas with high threat levels. Current relays require deployment from large vehicles, light vehicles with trailers or even airplanes to provide communication coverage. The Heidrun Radio Relay offers superior portability over existing solutions and can, therefore, be transported in small reconnaissance vehicles.

SPECIFICATIONS

    • Flight Time 1:30h
    • Hand launched
    • Deployment time 5 min
    • Deep-stall landing within 7,5-12m radius
