CableGuard

First UAV of this class with unlimited mobility and flight time

How does it work?

Innovative ground tethered power system (U.S. patent pending) allows CableGuard for continuous observation of a strategic area from an altitude of 70 meters.

When there is a need for a dynamic flight the cable is automatically detached and furled. After the mission, the UAV may be reconnected to the ground power unit.

The system

UAV

  • waterproof
  • modular construction – high configurability
  • great thrust to weight ratio – various kinds of additional modules may be attached
  • retractable landing gear – unobstructed camera field of view
  • 8 motors – can be safely landed even with 2 motors disabled
  • folding arms – easily transportable
  • advanced autopilot – huge autonomy abilities
  • up to 30 minutes of flight on the inbuilt battery
  • maximum speed – 60km/h

Multifunctional observation system

  • waterproof
  • 3-axis stabilization
  • weight: 850g
  • full HD camera with 10x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom (30x zoom coming soon)
  • IR 640p camera with 4x digital zoom
  • universal mount and signal connector
  • RS232 TTL and Ethernet interfaces

Radio transmission

  • waterproof
  • transmission range up to 10 km (CE) or 15 km (FCC)
  • 2-axis UAV tracking
  • 3 degrees precision
  • ethernet connectivity with GCS
  • digital, AES256 encrypted video and data transmission

Ground Power System

  • waterproof
  • tethered power system – unlimited hover time
  • light and durable 70m cable (can be longer with smaller UAV)
  • constant cable tension – better wind resistance
  • automatic cable furling – the possibility of disconnecting the power supply while in the air and switching the UAV into battery mode
  • compact and strong construction – trouble-free transport
  • Mains or portable generator powered

Ground Control Station

  • rainproof
  • two joysticks and color-coded buttons for UAV and camera control
  • toughbook with flight planning and control software
  • inbuilt battery allows for up to 6 hours of work
  • powered from Mains or portable generator
  • connector for powering Antenna Tracker

CableGuard features

Waterproof

All system components (UAV, ground power station, antenna tracker, GCS) were designed with the toughest weather conditions in mind.

Long range transmission

Tracking antenna with digital, encrypted video and data link allows for up to 10km of range in Europe (CE) and 15km in USA (FCC).

Fully autonomous

UAV was equiped with an advanced autopilot and additional computer unit. Such a combination allows for creating even the most complicated autonomous missions through simple graphical user interface.

Tethered power

High voltage power supply system developed by our company allows the transmission of electricity to the drone by a lightweight and durable 70 meter long cable. Thanks to this solution, UAV can stay in the air 24/7.

Additional battery

Inbuilt battery lets CableGuard continue it’s flight for up to 30 minutes after detachment.

unlimited mobility

The ease and speed of assembling individual elements of the set allows for trouble-free transport and quick surveillance place change.

redundancy

All critical systems used for orientation in space have been doubled, and in some cases tripled. Autopilot has a safety coprocessor that allows safe landing in the event of main unit failure. The Failsafe function allows the drone to return home in case of radio communication failure.

configurability

Thanks to the universal mount of task heads, attaching both our modules and those inveted by the customer is not a problem.
