Project DescriptionCritical infrastructures protection
Border security
Forensic 3D reconstruction

The innovative service is based on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (drones) and consists of one or several intelligent
indoor autonomous small-size drones that are intended to carry out patrols inside buildings, removing the
problems of blind spots, human errors and health risks.
Each surveillance system is comprised of one or more surveillance drones, a set of charging pads and a control
centre application. The navigation system for indoor locations and the charging base maintains the system fully
unassisted. The patrol schedules, security alerts and routes can be modified by the end-user in real time through
the control centre.
-software for autonomous flight indoors
-obstacle detection and avoidance
-automate remote charging
-real time communication to the final user via the control platform

This market niche comprised the following main applications:

----Exploration in unknown buildings, modified or destroyed buildings caused by a catastrophe or a explosion,
Capacity to read the environment and create the maps in real-time. Sensors shipped onboard in order to detect
data of interest such as presence of human life, nocives gasses or temperature.

----Chemical and Nuclear plants, oil rigs, refineries, Petroleum or Natural Gas terminals (ATEX ATmosphères
EXplosives) (Monitoring in factories, warehouses, tanks that are difficult to access and present a risk for human
health, Supervision and inspection in prevention of possible explosion).

----Mining sites or tunnels (Need of a surveillance system in harsh environments or difficult architecture that
implies avoiding human presence, no deployment for high cost reasons).

----Defence industrial base (Contracting a product to cover surveillance tasks with no need of deployment. The
use of drones can prevent loss of human life).

----Security for embassies, national monuments, government buildings or Federal Reserve banks (Monitoring large
surfaces without cable deployment 24/7).

----Crowd control in indoor public or private facilities (airports or train stations) or during highly visible events
such as the Olympics (Need of a surveillance system flexible full-time or for a short period of time).
