The BlackHawk in Action



The BlackHawk Drone Fleet patrols your entire premises remotely. It flies automatic patrol routes, gathering and analyzing surveillance video and sensor data. When it detects unusual activity, it sends an alert back to the control center and engages the intruder. The BlackHawk provides high definition imaging, facial recognition and real-time recorded video of the identified subject. The system can also be configured with a wide range of remote sensors that dispatch the drone to the area upon trigger for a closer look.


Automatic response

Design automatic patrol routes across sensitive areas of your property on a regular or random schedule. Easily integrate motion, infrared, ultrasonic, microwave and chemical sensors to rapid dispatch the drone to the triggered area for evaluation.


Manual missions

Take the controls and investigate specific areas of your property, follow moving subjects and collect real-time surveillance as you like.


Live tracking

Track and follow moving targets automatically across your property. The drone will identify the exact coordinates of a subject and stream a live video feed of the intruder back to the control center. Remotely engage the target through the onboard loudspeaker. 


Video analytics

Integrate the BlackHawk’s live video stream into your native VMS. Analyze fly-by videos to increase operational efficiencies, identify hidden vulnerabilities and learn of patterned movements. Aptonomy’s powerful video analytics software catches object movements, appearance and disappearance, and alerts you to changes on the property. 


Chemical sensors

Monitor your property for leaks with BlackHawk’s chemical sensors. The drone checks chemical levels as it patrols and alerts the command center to any anomalies.


Anti-drone solution

Detect and deter adversarial drones from entering your property’s airspace.
