Unmanned Aircraft Systems
First Responders

Nord Atlantic USA is a supplier of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to Federal, State, and local Law Enforcement Agencies in the United States, and to the private industry. FLIR Cobalt 190UAVs are affordable and customizable aerial platforms capable of carrying a wide variety of cameras and sensors for aerial mapping and photography, situational awareness, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) data or communications relay, emergency data collection, environmental studies, border protection, disaster survey, search and rescue operations, covert law enforcement missions, drug enforcement, and many other applications.

In the USA, unmanned aircraft may operate within one or more classifications of the FAA controlled airspace and restrictions may apply. We can provide a comprehensive assessment of your present and future UAV possibilities, assistance with Federal Grants and COAs (Certificates of Exemptions issued by the FAA), or to arrange for a demo for virtually any type of unmanned aircraft.

News: FAA Makes Progress with UAS Integration

Domestic aerial surveillance

UAVs are increasingly being used by Federal and Local Law Enforcement Agencies, and the Homeland Security Department. In the United States, government agencies use drones to patrol the nation's borders, scout property, and hunt down fugitives. One of the first authorized for domestic usage was the Shadow Hawk UAV in service in Montgomery County, Texas and is being used by their SWAT and emergency management offices. UAVs can be powerful surveillance tools, capable of carrying face-recognition systems, license plate scanners, thermal imaging cameras, open WiFi sniffers, and other sensors

Search and rescue

UAVs will likely play an increased role in search and rescue in the United States. This was demonstrated by the use of UAVs during the 2008 hurricanes that struck Louisiana and Texas. Micro UAVs have been used to perform Search and Rescue activities on a smaller scale, such as the search for missing persons.

UAVs, operating between 18,000-29,000 feet above sea level, are capable of assisting in search and rescue operations and in damage assessment using daytime cameras, inertially-stabilized electro-optical cameras, infrared camera, and/or synthetic aperture radar (SAR). The SAR is a sophisticated all-weather sensor capable of providing photographic-like images through clouds, rain or fog, and in daytime or nighttime conditions; all in real-time. A concept of coherent change detection in SAR images allows for exceptional search and rescue ability: photos taken before and after the storm hits are compared and a computer highlights areas of damage.

Civilian Applications

Today, UAVs are used to inspect construction projects, industrial facilities, water reservoirs and dams, pipelines, towers, railway lines, power lines, mine shafts, or other industrial property for maintenance and security.  UAVs also have become practical, low-cost aerial platforms for mapping, filmmaking, videography, panoramic photography, real estate photography, crop stress assessment, and many other civilian applications.
