Surveillance Out Of The Box

(PresseBox) (Wiener Neustadt, ) On the upcoming Singapore Airshow Airborne Technologies introduces its newest development - the S.C.A.R.-Pod (Self Contained Aerial Reconnaissance Pod).

This Pod is completely self-sufficient and allows wireless operation. Data connection from pod to operator station is done via WIFI and needs no external cabling. The use of an internal - easy changeable - battery pack grants power supply for up to 10 hours.

The S.C.A.R.-Pod does not assume any airframe modifications on your aircraft. The lug suspensions enable immediate use on every aircraft with NATO hard points. The light weight carbon fiber pod carries a complete surveillance mission package which upgrades any aircraft to an ISR platform within a very short period of time. It offers room for an EO/IR Gimbal, Downlink, Uplink, Moving Map, Augmented Reality System and COMINT/SIGINT equipment. Depending on the size of the gimbal the S.C.A.R.- Pod is available in two versions for 10" and 15" EO/IR cameras.

Wolfgang Grumeth, CEO of Airborne Technologies, said, "With our new S.C.A.R.- Pod every aircraft and helicopter equipped with hard points can be a surveillance aircraft instantly. Although the S.C.A.R.- Pod is an "out of the box solution" it turns out to be very flexible in fulfilling special customer needs. On the basis of "Plug & Fly" the customer is able to add ISR capability to his fleet.
