Today at the #SeaDrone Tech Summit 2019 in Ostia (Rome) we are proud to present our final prototype of the SARA #tetheredDrone solution, complete with its hangar. We also made a live demonstration of the SARA system.
This system is capable of detecting a small boat at the horizon at a distance of up to 12 nautical miles and a person swimming in the night up to 700 meters from the drone, thanks to its thermal/optical payload.
SARA can be used in #SearchandRescue and #surveillance operations in maritime and other domains. Moreover, thanks the accuracy in positioning provided by the European #GNSS technology – #Galileo, the system can now follow a ship autonomously in navigation without pilot intervention! We are proud to have had the chance to implement this idea with help of the #H2020 program after almost 2 years of hard work!
