Keymerging Technologies, a high-tech security firm based in Mombasa, Kenya has purchased ING Robotic Aviation’s Responder rotary wing unmanned aerial vehicle systems for use in East Africa.
The drones will be used for aerial surveillance with both electro-optical and infrared cameras, in order to provide a wide range of imagery and monitoring support for their clients in East Africa.
Keymerging Technologies bought ING Robotic Aviation’s two complete Responder vertical take off and landing (VTOL) robotic aircraft with cameras, as well as a Ground Control System (GCS) and ancillary equipment. As well the company is providing a two week training package in East Africa. Delivery and training will be late August 2013.
“Responder will be used as a flexible surveillance tool,” said Ian Glenn, CEO and CTO of ING Robotic Aviation. “Our equipment will be used to get the right information, into the right hands, at the right time.”
The stabilized, gimbal mounted camera system can provide real time still and video images in both visual and infrared sections of the spectrum. Additionally, these images can be rendered in a range of useful ways in order to be able to improve situational awareness.
ING Robotic Aviation delivers airborne sensing solutions and much more and works with the Canadian military.
