With over 100,000 hours of service the SkyRanger R60 sets the standard for real-time, secure, aerial intelligence across a wide range of mission-critical applications from clandestine tactical missions, to search and rescue operations, to commercial inspections and more. The R60 is deployed with over 20 militaries and in use with public safety and industrial operators in over 30 countries.
Rugged, reliable, and battle-tested, the R60 is man-packable and can be deployed in minutes by a single operator. A robust, IP-53-rated airframe and payloads ensure safe and reliable operations in extreme environments and inclement weather including snow and rain. With its industry-leading high wind tolerance, the R60 delivers stable operations in sustained 40 mph (65 kph) winds and gusts up to 55 mph (90 kph) so you can deploy when and where you need to.
The R60’s powerful zoom and infrared imaging payloads provide secure situational awareness to both ground personnel
and central command.
ADVANCED IMAGING PAYLOADS FOR LONG-RANGE ISR
Infrared and zoom imaging payloads deliver electro-optical and infrared imagery and video for versatility in day or night missions. Vector video processing software automatically targets and tracks up to 10 moving objects within the camera’s feld of view and delivers real-time calculation of target heading and speed in both EO and IR.
SECURE AND INTEROPERABLE ALL-DIGITAL NETWORKING
The R60’s all-digital AES-256 encrypted data link with STANAG 4609 embedded metadata, enables interoperability with a wide range of situational awareness and command and control applications including ATAK.
SIMPLE TABLET-BASED MISSION CONTROL SOFTWARE
Autonomous capabilities and simple touchscreen controls require minimal training for operators. Using multi-aircraft control a single operator can control up to 16 different R60 aircraft, with each aircraft executing a unique, semi-autonomous ﬂight plan.
COMPACT AND DEPLOYABLE IN MINUTES
The R60’s patented folding airframe is easy to transport in a standard rucksack and is deployable in minutes by a single operator without tools.
