Vanguard Defense Industries is committed to supporting our public safety professional with an exceptional platform to conduct reconnaissance, surveillance and apprehension.
Our ShadowHawk UAS line of aircraft can provide daytime and nighttime support in a multitude of climatic conditions which would impair most air assets.
The ShadowHawk UAS equipped with both a digital daytime camera and a FLIR system can be transported in a SUV to a designated area and launched in just under five minutes. Dependent upon the proximity of the incident to where the agency choses to stage the UAS, the ShadowHawk® can launch and be on site within a few minutes depending upon the mission requirements. With a range capability up to 25 miles, agencies can easily determine coverage requirements and mission perameters. Designed as a cost effective means to augment an existing airwing or as a primary airborne resource, the ShadowHawk® provides exceptional “eye-in-the-sky” capabilities.”
