Azur Drones, Europe’s leader in autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), has launched its drone-in-a-box surveillance solution, Skeyetech, at Intersec.
“We are delighted to be introducing our state-of-the-art autonomous UAV in the Middle East, and more precisely in Dubai. This launch coincides with the city’s journey towards transforming Dubai into a smart city. Skeyetech is, therefore, the perfect fit for such a status. Our drone will provide the much-needed security solution that will ensure properties such as oil and gas facilities or ports are protected from any emerging threats,” said Jean-Marc Crépin, CEO of Azur Drones.
Skeyetech is a ready-to-fly surveillance system, which has been designed to monitor and confirm events, conduct perimeter patrols and provide support operation to ground security personnel.
Azur Drones’ entry into the Middle East market is timely and also expected to reignite the industry’s growth, which according to research by 6w Research will be worth US$8.4 billion by 2025.
The research also indicates that the expected growth is being driven by increasing infrastructure development and stringent regulatory policies. This, in turn, has fueled demand for super-smart high-tech surveillance solutions, such as next-generation drones.
Skeyetech drone is deployed autonomously from its docking station and is weatherproof. Its users can easily launch scheduled and on-demand missions. Thanks to its integration with main Video Management Systems (Genetec, Milestone), Skeyetech can be readily and efficiently added to existing security systems.
Skeyetech drone, which can attain a speed of 50 km/h in just a few seconds, is equipped with high-quality EO/IR sensors, enabling the operator to see better and further in both daytime and night operations. It can also safely assess the situation in potentially hazardous zones such as fires and intrusions without jeopardizing the operator’s safety.
