Keymerging Technologies orders Responder UAV

13th August 2013 - 12:06 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


ING Robotic Aviation has announced that it will provide its Responder rotary wing unmanned aerial vehicle system (UAV) to Keymerging Technologies for use in aerial surveillance operations in East Africa. Two units of the system have been ordered, with delivery scheduled for late August 2013.

Under a contract announced on 12 August, ING Robotic Aviation will supply two complete Responder vertical take off and landing (VTOL) robotic aircraft with cameras, as well as a Ground Control System (GCS) and ancillary equipment. Training will also be provided by the company.

The stabilised, gimbal mounted camera system can provide real time still and video images in both visual and infrared sections of the spectrum, providing improved situational awareness for the user.  

Keymerging Technologies will deploy the Responder systems with both electro-optical and infrared cameras, in order to provide a wide range of imagery and monitoring support for its clients.

Ian Glenn, CEO and CTO, ING Robotic Aviation, said: ‘Responder will be used as a flexible surveillance tool. Our equipment will be used to get the right information, into the right hands, at the right time.’
