Save this for later

France's Research, Assistance, Intervention, Deterrence (RAID) law enforcement team has adopted Flyability’s Elios UAS for indoor reconnaissance and intelligence, the company announced on 17 April.

Elios is capable of operating in complex enclosed spaces, such as hostage situations, isolated shooter or  terrorist attacks inside buildings. RAID will be able to deploy the UAS as a remotely operated camera providing high-definition and thermal images for reconnaissance and intelligence, saving time and increasing the security of officers by allowing them to identify hazards before entering an unknown zone.

Patrick Thévoz, CEO of Flyability, said: ‘The adoption of our product by the RAID materialises the mission of Flyability to send robots instead of humans in hazardous places and dangerous situations.

‘We believe in the use of technology to reduce the exposure of humans to risks and in particular for homeland security professionals, firefighters, and first responders operating in confined spaces.’
