A maker of stabilized cameras and accessories for a range of commercial and industrial uses, NextVision’s gimballed EO/IR cameras capture high-quality visual and thermal imagery and video which can then be streamed directly to a ground station.
Pairing the EO/IR camera with the durable, military-grade E400 results in a powerful solution for search-and-rescue, emergency management, and disaster response use cases. The E400’s exceptional endurance allows it to cover considerably more acreage in a single flight than a multirotor drone. The integration is also suited to surveillance and security applications, as the silent and fully-electric E400 is able to fly much lower than other drones without being detected.
“At Event 38, we’re always looking for ways to make drone technology accessible to industries and sectors that can really benefit from it, which is why we’re so thrilled to be integrating NextVision cameras with the E400,” said Event 38 founder and CEO Jeff Taylor. “The E400 is extremely user-friendly; you don’t need a background in aeronautics to use it. This means that any public safety team—whether that’s the police, the sheriff, border control, search and rescue, emergency management, or disaster response—can add aerial surveillance to their capabilities without having to hire an additional operator.”
Recently, Event 38 successfully demonstrated the E400 with an EO/IR camera at an Indiana Public Safety Drone Training event.
