XG Technology’s IMT Vislink is collaborating with K2 Unmanned Systems to provide video downlink capability for K2's new law enforcement UAS, XG announced on 11 May.

Under the partnership, IMT Vislink is providing interoperable, encrypted HD video downlink technology for use with the Knight Hawk UAS, a tactical UAS designed for law enforcement, first responder operations and infrastructure inspection.

The UAS is a commercial grade system with high payload capacity, infrared optics and encrypted HD video downlink.

IMT Vislink's downlink technology is fully compatible with regional agencies' large platform, fixed and rotary wing surveillance aircraft platforms, allowing for dual use of current portable and mobile command vehicle downlink receive systems. The downlink systems are built around an air-to-anywhere concept that allows real-time video to be collected, distributed and managed across all deployed assets.

John Procacci, VP of sales, XG Technology, said: ‘We are pleased to collaborate with K2 on their exciting new drone system. Our mission has always been to provide live, real-time video communications that deliver actionable intelligence from all aerial platforms to law enforcement personnel, and this project with K2 is the latest example.'
