Skyfire Announces SF2 Drone for Public Safety and Critical Sector Missions
Today, public safety UAS consulting group Skyfire Consulting announced the launch of SF2, a versatile drone designed for public safety and critical sectors. The 22-inch mid-sized multirotor aircraft is payload-agnostic, and boasts a resilient design that enables it to deploy in the extreme environments found in public safety missions. Whether being utilized by the fire service for mapping missions and scene reconstruction, by police departments for tactical missions or drone as a first responder (DFR) programs, SF2 is able to help first responders complete their mission and get home safely.
“Skyfire has taken its nearly ten years of public safety UAS experience and used feedback from hundreds of clients to design SF2 into an aircraft made specifically for the unpredictable conditions seen by first responders,” said Skyfire founder and CEO Matt Sloane. “SF2 is a natural progression of our business as we remain focused on supporting those who protect and serve our communities by offering a drone that’s as diverse as their mission sets.”
The drone is constructed with aerospace grade aluminum and carbon fiber, and its folding boom configuration allows it to be transported in a compact lightweight case or backpack for quick deployment. With a maximum payload weight of 14 pounds, SF2 has a maximum flight speed of over 55 mph and a maximum flight time of over 45 minutes. Its payload-agnostic design allows users to choose from a variety of HD camera and sensor options. SF2 comes standard with the Herelink integrated remote controller with a maximum transmission distance of six miles and an onboard Pixhawk Cube Orange, with the NDAA compliant Blue Cube and Blue Herelink available upon request.
W.S. Darley Co. is set to serve as the first official re-seller of SF2. The company will leverage their extensive network and trusted relationships within public safety, military and DOD to provide agencies with easy access to the drone.
