Modular Aerial Platform to Support SBIRs

We have designed our Aerial platforms to accommodate custom payloads allowing us to loft various instruments for scientific study.

3D Design & Printing Custom Payload Mounts

We work closely with our science and engineering partners to ensure that we can safely loft the required payloads for each SBIR.
  • Supporting scientists with designing a light, aerodynamic payload
  • Design and build custom mounts and safety systems for attaching unique payloads to aerostat and drone platforms
  • Design  / Integrate stabilization systems to increase data collection.

This is a sample of a 3D printed payload.

Let Us Build You OneNeed a Custom, Turn-Key Launch Trailer?

Our specialized facility can accommodate aerostats, fixed-wing drones, and multirotor drones.
  • Climate-controlled command center reduces crew fatigue during 24/7 deployments.
  • 50’ EO/IR periscope mast with guy wires, which allow elevated surveillance platforms to operate in up to 40mph winds.
  • Elevated observation deck improves staffs situational awareness with ability to look and listen in 360 degrees from 17ft off the ground.
  • 240 v generator, 120 and 12 voltages allows redundancy and longer missions.
  • Our mobile observation trailer can be towed at 60 mph, and set up for elevated RC/IR/EOS observations within 9 minutes of arrival.
  • Fiber optic, coax, RS-232 or wireless connection from the mast to trailer-based monitoring station
  • Elevated remotely controlled 50’ EO/IR periscope with powerful remotely controlled range finder binoculars. The data can be can be sent to TSA, FBI, or other airport security teams.
  • State of the art 40“ HD display screens in dark room enhances ability discern small and distant drone images.
  • Dedicated Artificial Intelligence algorithms to help classify common drone shapes (up to 1km). (AI training not included)
  • Optional “big ear” acoustical listening and recording device to improve ability to hear incoming drones. (Type and cost is TBD)
  • Elevated Radio Spectrometer antennas increases chance to detect the location of drones/ drone pilots. (Type and cost is TBD)
  • Mobile Command center FAA red and white strobe lights, rooftop “Security” signage and powerful search light helps illuminate and potentially deter stealth drone attacks near runways at night.
  • Mast-based (or moored balloon-based ) encrypted radio repeaters to keep pilots and airport security communications staff connected when deployed at distant runway stake out locations
  • DDIS mobile field office can help host some of client’s counter drone equipment. This includes 220 v power supply and stealth elevated turret mounts for “RF Jamming” equipment.
  • DDIS’s catapult for safe rapid launch of “chaser” drones, or small 20lb Radar dishes mounted to 49ft. panning masts.
  • Since most major international airports are near maritime ports UAV-Monitoring offers rapidly deployed Mil Spec boat for shallow water patrols.
  • Powerful stabilized range finding binoculars can be handheld or mounted on our 10 meter portable mast for an elevated survey of shallow coastal areas in heavy winds.
