The challenge

Earth observation satellites provide a means for monitoring large areas of the planet over an extended period of time. However, they are subject to atmospheric occlusion, limited in spatial and temporal resolution. Recent advancements in technology have made it economically feasible to employ sUAS for high-resolution real-time remote sensing applications, which may complement satellite information.

The solution

Users will benefit from the value-added information provided by sUAS platforms developed by Alerion Technologies, while mitigating human-risk and reducing recurring costs when compared to using piloted aircrafts to achieve the same task.
Alerion Technologies has developed a unique set of avionics and an intuitive user-interface for sUAS, differentiating itself from leading competitors. Alerion Technologies provides Earth observation solutions using sUAS technologies, especially in challenging environments:

  • Marine applications such as fishing and ocean monitoring, where the salinity of water and strong winds play an important role;
  • Forest fires, hurricanes, tornadoes and other dangerous natural phenomena where conditions are extreme;
  • Rapidly changing weather situations where real-time data analysis is critical and difficult to obtain, such as flash flood prevention, ocean navigation, and air-traffic control.
