CableGuard

Tethered UAV

CableGuard is unmanned system for limitless observation of strategic areas. Innovative ground tethered power system (U.S. patent protected) allows CableGuard for continous observation or measurement from an altitude of 100 metres. When there is a need for dynamic flight the cable is automatically detached and furled, giving the UAV its full mobility.

Waterproof

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

Additional Battery

Inbuilt battery lets CableGuard continue it's flight for up to 30 minutes after detachment. Battery replacement takes less than 30s.

Long Range Transmission

Tracking antenna with digital, encrypted video and data link allows for up to 10 km of range on EU standards (CE) and 15 km on US standards (FCC).

Configurability

Thanks to the universal payload mount, attaching both our modules and those requested by the customer is not a problem.

Unlimited mobility

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

Tethered power

Hight voltage supply system allows the power transmission to the drone by a lightweight and durable cable. Thanks to this solution, UAV can stay in the air 24/7.
