Persistent ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance)

A Bird’s Eye View

Elevate Situational Awareness

For military and security missions, persistent Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities are not just advantageous — they’re mission-critical. The ability to maintain constant vigilance over an area, monitor enemy movements, and gather actionable intelligence in real-time can mean the difference between success and failure or life and death.

Closing Gaps in Real-Time Intelligence Monitoring

Traditional Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) methods often face limitations in providing persistent coverage and real-time situational awareness.

  • Free-flying drones are logistically challenging and limited by battery life.
  • Manned security requires resource allocation and dedicated personnel.
  • Traditional cameras have limited FOV, both fixed and unfixed.
  • Video monitoring is often laggy and inaccurate.
  • In military scenarios, manned targeting is prone to error and increases risk for the warfighter.

All these issues lead to gaps in monitoring critical areas and delays in actionable intelligence, compromising mission effectiveness and safety.
