A surveillance, recognition, inspection and search drone
Villepinte, – DRONE VOLT, an expert in onboard intelligence and manufacturer of professional civilian drones, is expanding its product offer with the introduction of AIRSHADOW, its new mini drone. Programmable for automatic missions, this compact and sturdy drone can fly with a low visual and noise signature at speeds up to 90 km/h both day and night.
The DRONE VOLT R&D teams have integrated the latest technologies in order to meet the numerous requirements for professional and industrial applications. The new DRONE VOLT CONTROL application enables simple and rapid mission programming.
The AIRSHADOW is offered in two versions with a maximum range of 5 km. Real-time operator / machine data transmission is secured.
Data transmission is completely secured through the use of AES-256 encryption algorithm.
A discreet drone
The AIRSHADOW has a low visual and noise signature.
With its camera and infrared detector, it can acquire high precision images and videos both day and night (for example, license plates or faces).
The AIRSHADOW is able to fly in difficult weather conditions such as moderate rain and wind speeds up 40 km/hour.
The rigidity of its nylon chassis reinforced with carbon fibers makes AIRSHADOW more shock-resistant and gives its excellent robustness.
Compact and ready to fly
The AIRSHADOW is compact (31×33 cm and 15 cm tall) and easy to transport. No assembly is needed before use.
Ultra-rapid, the AIRSHADOW can reach a flight speed of 90 km/h.
It can fly for 20 minutes with a large range of action and maximum video transmission range of 5 km.
The DRONE VOLT CONTROL application makes it possible to easily program different missions and monitor telemetric data on the control screen.

The AIRSHADOW platform offers two versions with either:
- A high performance camera weighing 180 g.
The double EO-IR (Electro-Optical-Infrared) stabilized camera offers professional exceptional image quality and sharpness both day and night. Its 20x digital zoom enables it to capture detailed images.
- A combination of a 160×120 thermal camera and a 2 megapixel color camera. It is possible to switch from one camera to the other or to display the two in picture-in-picture mode.
The AIRSHADOW is designed for use in applications such as surveillance, recognition, inspection, search and mapping in the security, safety, construction and energy areas.
“The AIRSHADOW represents true innovation, guaranteeing data confidentiality through its encryption system. Thanks to its new structure, it is extremely robust.
