DragoPod Heavy Lift Drone up to 130kg

The  DragoPod™ is the Pod Drone Platform™’s Heavy Lift Drone Super-carrier featuring great flexibility designed for wide range of applications. Configured in various payload capacity ranges with payloads upto 130kg. Medical equipment, filming in 3D, or as a carrier of smaller UAV drones, the Pod Drone Platform™ DragoPod™ sparks the imagination of military & commercial professionals all over the world.

Flight times on some setups of up to 300 minutes give long range patrol and permanent operation options without need to return and change battery frequently.

24/7 thermal 360° day & night monitoring in day or total darkness.

Detect humans, vehicles, boats, drones or other objects within seconds.

Multiple camera and sensor options.

Many options and sensor packages available. Optimize your camera setup by contacting us for spreadsheets on full DRI ratings that give you distances for detection, recognition and identification of standard objects such as humans and vehicles.

DRI ranges detect people at night with thermal camera (IR) at up to 1,500m (5,200’), detect vehicles at night at up to 4200m (14,000’).

DRI ranges detect people during day with electro optical (EO) camera at up to 8,000m (26,200’), detect vehicles at up to 22km (72,000’).

Simple to operate.

Replaces multiple perimeter or CCTV systems.

The heavy lift drone capability means the payload options are very diverse and althoigh it can carry cameras the use of these heavy lift drones is more of  a logistcis and rescue support role.

Can be configured with Lidar in flight collosion avoidance.
