It could be floodwaters rolling over a town or a hiker who has gone missing in the desert. Whatever the emergency, an effective response will often require an aerial platform.

With this an eye in the sky, a response team can get clearer a picture of an unfolding situation, spot dangers and opportunities, and better direct personnel along the fastest and safest routes.

To that end, Zenith Aerotech develops affordable, easy-to-deploy tethered aerial vehicles (TAVs).

Like drones, TAVs are small and easily transportable. However, they have the added benefit of being able to stay aloft for hours, and even days, at a time—delivering true persistent surveillance.

In addition, Zenith Aerotech have a heavy-lift capacity, allowing them to carry a wide range of customizable payloads, including:

  • Overhead illumination panels,
  • Networking radios,
  • Audio announcement equipment,
  • Electro-optical/infrared cameras, and
  • Synthetic aperture radar.
