RECONNAISSANCE & INSPECTION
IMAGING AND ENERGY
JETWIND can provide complete RPAS for users that need to perform Tactical or Strategic Intelligence, Reconnaissance and Surveillance (ISR) missions including Security and Defense forces. Specific airborne sensors are capable of producing valuable information to support decision makers.
For both ISR and Inspection, the RQ-17 ION flight hour can costs much less than a manned helicopter or fixed wing aircraft reducing the risk exposure of specialized crews in particular tasks.
The RQ-17 ION adds value to Maritime Patrol missions by its VTOL and Endurance features being fit for operation in vessel decks without any need of launch or recovery system.
POWER GRID INSPECTION
Overhead lines are usually inspected by manned helicopters that can be replaced by unmanned aircraft as the RQ-17 ION that can fly over 350 km with airborne sensor able to identify specific failures in high voltage power lines.
Long borders demand endurance. The RQ-17 ION presents long flight time when compared with another RPA and is equipped with robust hardware able to operate in particular weather conditions with high temperature.
SURFACE PIPES INSPECTION
Oil & Gas surface pipes can be inspected by the RQ-17 ION for detection of abnormal conditions in long lines, specially installed in regions with limited ground access.
