International showcase of the aerospace industry, the 53rd edition of the Paris Air Show set a new record with 2,450 exhibiting companies and more than 316,000 visitors.
Alongside the 140 exhibited aircrafts, Azur Drones demonstrated its latest innovation for surveillance: the SKEYETECH autonomous drone. Designed to strengthen security and safety over sensitive sites, it can carry out automated patrols, reconnaissance flights or assist in crisis situations.
Flight demonstrations every 30 minutes
SKEYETECH drone has performed surveillance missions every 30 minutes. Each mission has been started via the Video Management System (VMS). Visitors could, inter alia, watch the drone be deployed from its docking station, take off autonomously and land with precision. Almost one hundred demonstrations were thus completed in one week.
A constraining air environment
SKEYETECH system was the only drone to fly at the Paris Air Show. The static display area is indeed subjected to strong constraints which create more challenging flight conditions: electromagnetic disturbances, anti-drone system, presence of other aircrafts, circulation of the public, etc. Demonstrations were therefore conducted in a drone cage installed for this purpose.
A high number of visitors
The demonstrations attracted many visitors who expressed a great interest in the SKEYETECH autonomous system: French and foreign industrial companies, institutions, journalists, etc.
For Azur Drones teams, this 2019 edition was a very interesting experience which involved, as at each customer installation, all trades: engineering, operations, marketing and sales.
