Amphibious Mobile Patrol

Amphibious Mobile Patrol is a solution aimed at regions that have inland waterways, wetlands, Lilly paddy, swamps, muddy areas, shoreline or island cluster with security concerns.

Use Amphibious Mobile Patrol in situations when the terrain is mostly inaccessible but a high-risk, a remote border, a river, a large amphibious area or a group of islands. Amphibious Mobile Patrol allows you to respond quickly to any incident or intrusion. Our drone/hovercraft solution can enhance your current surveillance system (fixed cameras, security guards, barrier, etc.) with mobile solution that cover any gaps, expands viability, improves response times and capabilities.

Our Amphibious Mobile Patrol solution can operate day and night, in all weather, its an automated team of surveillance drones, hovercraft tethered drones with all-terrain hovercraft ground support that will monitor your target area in one or more pre-programmed routes or randomly, to prevent, migration, smuggling or vandalism perpetrated based on a predictable route.

The surface to air viability of the Amphibious Mobile Patrol solution can come complete with full command center, or integrate seamlessly with your existing surveillance system. Your security operation will receive a live video feed of the areas monitored by the drone/hovercraft solution and counter measures can be deployed from the surface or the air, an if necessary.

OPTION 1 Actionable Intelligence - Amphibious Mobile Patrol

The POD Ops is unique, our solution is designed to monitor a multi-terrain area from the air, on the surface, below the surface or underwater and on any terrain.  We offer multiple tools from wide area cameras installed on drone programmed to sweep search an area, to night vision or thermal cameras that are installed on unmanned hovercraft  USV capable of traveling back and forth from land to sea or drones UAV. 

Listening devices can also be used on our drones or hovercraft, each can be outfitted with sonar and GPS.  Hovercraft can utilize single beam or multi beam echo sounders and sensors as well as provide surface response or the ability to move from water to land.  The Amphibious Mobile Patrol operation can perform surveillance over a single area or migrating coordinates and when combined with hovercraft, tethered drones or our robotic mobile drone battery swamp station a search application can operate for extended hours.

Wildlife conservationists are embracing the amphibious mobile patrol to monitor animals and any potential threats against them by using drones.

Depending on your surveillance needs, we define the number of drones and hovercraft required to patrol your area or terrain. We research areas the most vulnerable to incident, choose the most appropriate coordinates and program the route(s) for the automated patrols to effectively protect your amphibious border, river, lake or coastal border.

Our drone/hovercraft Amphibious Mobile Patrol solution allows you to secure a pre-defined area, or migrating coordinates, amphibious landscapes or normally inaccessible regions.

Option 2 Drones - Amphibious Mobile Patrol

Drones fly to any way-point in seconds, visually detects humans and tracks them, leading security personnel to suspects in real-time while streaming live video and location to operators in the control room.

With drones there is real time flight management, flight tracking, planning, and sensor data management and dissemination enabling multiple UAS operators to plan and remotely share video, pictures, and tracks.

Drones fly a pre-defined route to identify suspicious activities near the facility perimeter. The drone is able to continuously search for moving objects while on patrol, alert and stream live videos in case of suspicious movements detection.

Each of our drones have the capability of “looking down” with high resolution video cameras to survey and search an area. Via on-board video recorder or FPV (first person view) technology, we can survey extensive terrain in real time. Once a subject of interest is located, the exact location can be relayed back to the ground crew. On-board video can also be downloaded for post-flight inspection.

Average flight times for these all electric drones is usually between 10-25 minutes giving the pilot enough time with several batteries to scan an area miles in diameter using a zig-zag sweep pattern or expanding spiral search pattern. One drone can search an extensive area in minutes that might take an entire group of ground personnel to cover in hours.

OPTION 3 Hovercraft - Amphibious Mobile Patrol

Their unique abilities make Hov Pod Hovercraft extremely useful on or near wet lands, wet sand or mud, shallow water, flooded rivers, puddles, swamps, many areas that can't be reached with other vehicles. In a flood the average automobile can be swept off the road in 12 inches of moving water, and roads covered by water are prone to collapse. Attempting to drive through water also may stall your engine, with the potential to cause irreparable damage if you try to restart the engine. 

Due to inaccessibility there are large remote terrain, amphibious landscapes and marine expansions that are difficult to monitor or secure. Resolving the issues of managing these areas will become more urgent as fishing depletes coastal resources, climate change forces migration and protecting borders rises in importance.

Given the logistical and economical challenges of monitoring wetlands, shallow water, mud,  Lilly paddy, large multi-terrain or protected amphibious areas creates unique security issues. Deploying the right surveillance technologies can increase monitoring capability and guide law enforcement personnel to suspicious activities.

POD Ops monitoring and enforcement strategies, present some of the most efficient and cost effective solutions for operating in these challenging areas and monitoring and responding to human activity. 

When you think of hovercraft in terms of commercial applications, Hov Pod are amphibious, all terrain transportation. Hovercraft can replace a Motorcycle, Jet Ski, Car, Taxi, 4X4 Pickup Truck, Camper, Motor Boat, Ferry, Tour Bus, Ambulance, Van, SUV, Raft, Shuttle and in many cases a Helicopter. Hov Pod Commercial Hovercraft can carry up to 1500 lbs (680Kg) or 9 people to deliver a payload to a remote location.

Option 4 Tethered Drones - Amphibious Mobile Patrol

Currently, drones and hovercraft are helping to patrol amphibious areas around the world, but many additional applications remain to be developed.  For instance, tethered can provide a cost-effective platform capable of inspecting critical infrastructure such as pipelines, wind farms, solar parks and electric transmission lines in remote areas. Surveillance and monitoring of sensitive areas such as ports and airports, as well as search-and-rescue operations in remote areas such as desert regions, offshore areas and major inland waterways also can be supported by tethered drones. In law enforcement, UAVs can be used to keep a suspect “in sight” while a pursuit is underway in urban or rugged terrain environments.

Once a target area in identified and a route plan is programmed and the drone/hovercraft solution delivers surface to air viability and the ability to engage or provide critical surface response. Onboard video can also be downloaded for post-mission inspection. One drone and a hovercraft can search an extensive area in minutes that another crew may not be able to reach or that might take an entire group of ground personnel to cover in hours.

Option 5 HoverHome - Amphibious Mobile Patrol

Drones have distance, flight time and operational limitations due to battery life, maximum remote control range and line of sight restrictions. If the home station is in a static location, operators must ensure that drones stay within remote control range or line of sight and that each drone has sufficient power to get home safely.

Autonomous all-terrain mobile surveillance, security, border patrol or search and rescue operations?

Mobile Drone Station - HoverHome is a mobile all terrain automated battery swap station, that not only allows for operation in remote areas but when a drones battery gets low, our robotic station can land the drone, swap the battery with a freshly charged one, and relaunch the drone to resume its mission. All with or without a pilot or crew on-board.

HoverHome - Mobile Drone Station is expanding the capabilities of commercial drones, by allowing for launching and landing on water, amphibious or hard to reach terrain. Enabling near-continuous flights with minimal down time, this mobile automated battery swap station also ensures data is collected when and where it is needed in a data-driven world.
