A tethered drone system with unlimited flight time

Scout 137 Drone System

The Scout 137 Drone System has been specifically designed to give you control, coverage, and situational awareness for your confined space inspection activities. The LiDAR-based navigation system enables safe and user-friendly inspection flights in confined spaces.

Uniquely designed for inspection of dark, confined spaces.

The Scout 137 Drone System has been specifically designed to give you control, coverage, and situational awareness for your confined space inspection activities.

Often flying in GPS-denied environments, the Scout 137 has an onboard 3D Lidar in stead of a GPS. The Lidar serves as the perfect data source for the drone’s indoor positioning while also providing a useful visual support to the drone operator.

The drone tether system provides power to the drone and allows stress-free inspection with no limitations on flight time. It provides a robust wired data link, where location-tagged inspection data flows back to the ground station and can further be streamed live to the Scout Portal, when an internet connection is provided.

Ground Control App

Rugged tablet, hand and stylus
Rugged tablet with the Scout ground control app

The rugged tablet, along with the controller, is the operator’s main interface to the drone. The tablet is an especially rugged off-the-shelf product from Samsung, running the Ground Control App.

The app provides full overview and control of the drone’s systems. The video data from the camera as well as the 3D map from the Lidar are displayed in real time, in a PIP (picture-in-picture) view. You can easily switch main focus between video feed and 3D map, and the map can be freely zoomed, rotated and panned to reveal what is currently most interesting.

All happening in real-time, this situational awareness is an unique and indispensable aid to the operator.

The user can register inspection findings by simply clicking a dedicated button on the controller. Findings are tagged with time and location. and still photos of findings are immediately available in fully zoomable 4K resolution. This is very handy, should the operator want to look closer at something before deciding the next action. The drone is extremely stable and will just remain at the spot waiting for the next controller input.
