IC Realtime Develops Silent, Rapidly-Deployable Aerial Surveillance Solution

Source: IC Realtime

Pompano, Beach FL – April 4, 2017 – IC Realtime has developed a silent, rapidly-deployable aerial surveillance solution that provides law enforcement, border patrol and special event personnel the ability to remotely monitor events taking place in large areas.

Called PLAS (Persistent Low Altitude Surveillance), the solution is comprised of a flight deck and imaging unit attached to a tactical-grade balloon that is released into the air by security personnel on the ground via a carbon fiber power tether / mini CAT6 cable.  PLAS may also be battery-operated.

PLAS can be used stationary or attached to personnel or vehicles to move about areas of interest.  Because the system requires no propulsion, its silent operation makes it advantageous for drone hunting/deterring operations.  While normally flown at 250-feet, it may be deployed as high as 455-feet. 

The PLAS flight deck is a 6- x 3- x 3-inch carbon fiber housing that contains all command, control, and communications equipment (i.e. the brains for the system), as well as on-board microphones for drone detection.  These integrated components provide encrypted communications to either fixed or mobile command center(s) as well as authorized mobile users. Total weight of the flight deck including an imaging unit is 5 pounds.
