The advanced aerial drone is built by ex border patrol security guards. They have the license to use the 100% military software. Hyper spectral imaging can spot environment changes quickly and easily. Infrared, HD, camera serve multiple functions. Real time live video feed with on board data storage. Information is saved on a DVD and can be transferred where needed fixed wing drones
The Black Knight Drone UAV is an advanced civilian drone that can be used by civilians, military, police, ranchers, farmers and anywhere you need an “eye in the sky.” They are custom-built in Texas, U.S.A. to the user’s requirements. A dual screen laptop is used for information gathering and drone control. Currently they serve a 3 mile square radius. The distance can be extended if the drone is followed by the operator. It can also be reprogrammed from the laptop to view areas of interest.
Electric and gas models are available. The electric model can be hand launched and stay aloft 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. The gas model needs a short run way and can stay aloft up to 3 hours. Atmosphere conditions can vary flight times. Electric model has a rechargeable battery. Warranty is included on normal operation of the drone. Damage caused by misuse of the operator is not covered. The builders do supply a spare set of wings for the drone.
The software is covered for any problems encountered during normal use. Note that some sensors may not be available outside the USA. The builders state they have solutions for other countries. Wingspan of the Black Knight Drone is 83 inches. 25 mph (40 km) is suggested for optional data gathering. The advanced drone is a great tool for land mapping also. Images can be saved and later enhanced if needed. Current USA FAA regulations allow a drone to fly as high as 400 feet without authorization. Other countries should check with local authorities on flight regulations to avoid problems.
The Black Knight Drone can tackle many tasks previously done from the ground and save countless working hours. In some ares ground access is very difficult if not impossible. The drone can also monitor water conditions such as rivers, lakes and oceans. Military units can spot danger from the air or plan the best route for ground units. Police can monitor crowds and quickly deploy officers if a situation is spotted. Trouble makers can be detained before a huge disruption can occur. Farmers can view their crops and fields easily from the comfort of their front yard..Ranchers can monitor their livestock and pastures. Check how the grass growth is and move their herd where the best feed is.
Water enthusiasts can view river conditions and determine if it is safe for a kayak or canoe run. Lost children can be easily found using the advanced drone. The list is virtually endless for the many applications the drone can be used for. The Black Knight Drone can be viewed on YouTube. There is a short flight demo.
Oil and gas companies will find the drone a useful tool in their inventory. Pin hole leaks in pipelines can be easily spotted with hyper spectral imaging, saving a rupture costing millions of dollars and environment damages. Land mapping for surveys of road allowance, sub divisions, railway lines, aggregate pits, etc can all be accomplished by the drone. A two-day training program is suggested to fully understand the multiple functions of the Black Knight Drone. Some companies may find full-time employment using the drone’s advanced technology.
