UAV Solutions has unveiled a tethered version of the Allerion 25, greatly extending its potential flying time. The new model, dubbed Allerion 25-T, boasts a 12h flight endurance, far surpassing the untethered model's 40min endurance.
The quadcopter is aimed primarily at emergency response and law enforcement agencies. Its small size and relatively fast assembly time allows it to be carried in the trunk of a police cruiser or similar vehicle.
The aircraft falls just below FAA-mandated maximums for legislating small UAVs, allowing largely unrestricted use under certain circumstances.
"The next phase of the ISR variant Allerion 25-T will include the addition of a communications relay which will make the tethered Allerion ideal for use during natural disasters and events where communications are critical," says the company.
