OPTION 1 Actionable Intelligence – Wide Area Surveillance
The POD Ops is unique, our solution is designed to monitor a wide area from the air, on the surface, below the surface or underwater and on any terrain. We offer multiple tools from wide area cameras installed on drone programmed to sweep search an area, to night vision or thermal cameras that are installed on unmanned hovercraft USV capable of traveling back and forth from land to sea or drones UAV.
Listening devices can also be used on our drones or hovercraft, each can be outfitted with sonar and GPS. Our amphibious hovercraft can utilize single beam or multi beam echo sounders and sensors as well as provide surface response or the ability to move from water to land. The entire operation can be mobile performing surveillance over a single perimeter or multiple coordinates and when combined with hovercraft, tethered drones or our robotic mobile drone battery swamp station a search application can operate for extended hours.
Besides locating suspicious activity, the system could potentially be used to “track a target” to an otherwise unreachable location. For example a drone might be utilized to see at night, warn vandals, access a situation before it becomes a threat, engage pirates, follow suspects, even perform facial recognition.

Option 2 Drones – Wide Area Surveillance
Drones fly to any waypoint in seconds, visually detects humans and tracks them, leading security personnel to suspects in real-time while streaming live video and location to operators in the control room.
With drones there is real time flight management, flight tracking, planning, and sensor data management and dissemination enabling multiple UAS operators to plan and remotely share video, pictures, and tracks.
Drones fly a pre-defined route to identify suspicious activities in its view. The drone is able to continuously search for moving objects while on patrol, alert and stream live videos in case of suspicious movements detection.
Each of our drones have the capability of “monitoring a wide area” with high resolution video cameras to survey and search an area. Via on-board video recorder or FPV (first person view) technology, we can survey extensive terrain in real time. Once a subject of interest is located, the exact location can be relayed back to the ground crew. On-board video can also be downloaded for post-flight inspection.
Average flight times for these all electric drones is usually between 10-25 minutes giving the pilot enough time with several batteries to scan an area miles in diameter using a zig-zag sweep pattern or expanding spiral search pattern. One drone can search an extensive area in minutes that might take an entire group of ground personnel to cover in hours.

OPTION 3 Hovercraft – Wide Area Surveillance
Hov Pod All Terrain Hovercraft are extremely useful on areas designed, built, or used for traveling off public roads, especially concrete, gravel roads, unpaved trails, beaches, uneven terrain or any flat wilderness. Due to inaccessibility there are large remote terrain, amphibious landscapes and marine expansions that are difficult to monitor or secure. Resolving the issues of managing these areas will become more urgent as fishing depletes coastal resources, climate change forces migration and protecting borders rises in importance.
Given the logistical and economical challenges of monitoring monuments, wilderness sanctuaries, forests, desert regions, remote borders, multi-terrain or protected areas creates unique security issues. Deploying the right surveillance technologies can increase monitoring capability and guide law enforcement personnel to suspicious activities. Hovercraft deliver all terrain capability meaning the Hov Pod Hovercraft can act immediately taking a direct line for fast response without concern to water depth or other surface limitations in its path.
Hov Pod Hovercraft are well suited for rolling terrains of grasses or grassland and are able to operate on this landscape without affecting natural habitat or ecology. This is important because these rich areas between forest and desert receive 10 to 30 inches of rain per year and the ecosystem is delicate , hovercraft are extremely agile on these delicate landscapes and will not contribute to the erosion.
POD Ops monitoring and enforcement strategies, present some of the most efficient and cost effective solutions for operating in these challenging areas and monitoring human activity.

Option 4 Tethered Drones – Wide Area Surveillance
Tethered drones are one of the most promising and powerful new technologies for continuous monitoring operations. Tethered drones naturally complement traditional wide area security operations by helping to ensure that operations can be conducted safer, faster, and more efficiently.
Wide area security operations are extremely costly with traditional fixed wing aircraft and helicopters. Tethered drone may aid and support search efforts in many situations for a fraction of the cost in risk, and resources.
Once a subject of interest is located, the drone could detach from the tether and track or engage, while the hovercraft provides surface response. Onboard video can also be downloaded for post-mission inspection. One drone and a hovercraft can search an extensive area in minutes that another crew may not be able to reach or that might take an entire group of ground personnel to cover in hours.
Drone tethered to hovercraft technology is highly deployable. Drones and hovercraft, can be launched in a variety of environments without the need for a runway. A tethered can be stationary or mobile, able perform surveillance around a single perimeter or multiple coordinates and tethered drone perimeter application can operate for extended hours.

Option 5 HoverHome – Wide Area Surveillance
Drones have distance, flight time and operational limitations due to battery life, maximum remote control range and line of sight restrictions. If the home station is in a static location, operators must ensure that drones stay within remote control range or line of sight and that each drone has sufficient power to get home safely.

OPTION 8 Long Range Countermeasures – Wide Area Surveillance
We offer a laser or dazzle gun either as a standalone system as in the rifle (RifleDazz) or the DazzPod -1 a mounted format for smaller vessels or one of our larger integrated LRAD systems to vary the defense when confronted by these threats.
The POD Ops dazzle gun solutions are a type of laser weapon which uses green light to disorient and temporary blind pirates as well as other types of threats. The concentrated blast of green light can be used during both day and night.
Long range acoustic device (LRAD) is a non-lethal anti-piracy device which uses pain inducing sound beam to drive away pirates, thieves, vandals, intrduders and other threats. The sonic weapon produces high-pitched noise that is higher than the tolerance level of an average human being. LRAD have been mainly used on cargo and cruise ships until now.
