Autel Enterprise is Announces Its Partnership with FoxFury Lighting

Congratulations to two of our favorite partners and their partnership announcement.

“The FoxFury-designed, Autel-owned platform will support multiple FoxFury D3060 or D10 lighting systems, enabling pilots to be creative with lighting, dependent on need. A single D3060 might be mounted to fulfill FAA anti-collision lighting requirements, or mount multiple lights for daylight flight, indoor flight, or creative photography. The lights are rechargeable via USB-C connector.”

SMG at Commercial UAV Expo 2020

Today Commercial UAV Expo 2020 launched with the “Outdoor” Virtual Demonstrations.  Fortunately, it’s a lot warmer than last year, sitting comfortably at our desks!

Registration is still open, the exhibit hall is FREE to all attendees, as is the keynote sessions.  If you haven’t already registered, be sure to do so and check out what’s happening within the drone industry.  The keynote sessions are stacked and the rest of the sessions offered are deep with some heavy hitters from the industry.  Check out the full list of speakers here.

Back to the Virtual Drone Demonstrations; what a wonderful way to start the show!  We started off with Iris Automation and a detailed discussion of their onboard detect-and-avoid for BVLOS drone flight.  Very impressive how they are managing BLVOS operations.

Next up was a demonstration from Doosan and their hydrogen fuel cell long-endurance drone.  With the two hour flight time, they are BVLOS ready and better economics.

Anchoring the first section of Drone Demonstrations today was our very own, Douglas Spotted Eagle, showcasing the Sundance Media Group Night UAV CSI workflow.

Douglas took the time to walk the audience through best-practices on capturing a night forensic scene by drone. He includes a brief overview of the equipment used (links below) as well as access to the Pix4D model generated.

Find the full session on our Vimeo Page here.

AUTEL ENTERPRISE is Announcing its Made in USA EVO II Dual Bundles

Today is an exciting day for our friends at Autel Robotics with their announcement of “Made in USA”.  Our team from Sundance Media Group couldn’t be more proud knowing all the hard work that went into this designation and from what we’ve been told; this is just the beginning!

A rapid-deployment, packable unmanned aircraft made in USA with foreign and US components and labor.
PRESS RELEASE UPDATED: SEPTEMBER 3, 2020

Bothell, WA., SEPTEMBER 3, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Unmanned Aircraft manufacturer Autel Robotics is releasing its Autel EVO II Dual Enterprise UAS
bundle/package, created for public sector and enterprise use. Under the Autel Enterprise label, Autel Robotics offers end-users the opportunity to use aircraft
manufactured in the USA with foreign and domestic parts and labor. CEO Gary DeLuca shared the news with Autel Reseller/Dealers earlier this week.

“We notified our dealers that the change in manufacturing is effective immediately, and this new series of bundles does not impact our ability to ship existing stock. We have been making running changes to the product line in order to accommodate our customer needs since the day we initially released the product,” said DeLuca.

The Autel EVO IITM Dual is specifically designed to aid public safety personnel in identifying persons and objects in the dark, through smoke/fog, and offers public
safety personnel the highest resolution IR camera available, coupled with a second, separately functioning 8K resolution RGB camera. The 8K camera provides police and fire personnel deep detail, zoom capability, 40 minute flight time, and ability to stream video to any command location or MDT (mobile data terminal) when coupled with the Autel LiveDeckTM.

With an airframe from China, IR/thermal cameras from FLIR in the USA, and Sony imagers from Japan, the final product is assembled in Bothell, WA with American labor.  “We also source the majority of our bundle components from US manufacturers such as FoxFury, GPC, TacSwan, and others” said DeLuca. “Our software and other components are predominantly also from domestic and NATO suppliers. We’re deeply focused on shifting the product program to a Made in USA direction. We brought in outside consultants to assist us in identifying resources and processes that bring us closer to our American roots.”

“We are also proud to share that our solution does not require LTE for operations.  Whether intelligent flight, or manual flight, our systems function without connecting to a server inside or outside CONUS, added DeLuca.  Autel aircraft may be flown without connecting a mobile device, as the remote control offers a 3.3” display for FPV. When connected to a mobile device for preview and autonomous flight modes, the mobile device may be put into airplane/no-data mode once local maps have been downloaded for mission planning.  “Autel prides itself on ensuring that user data remains private,” said John Kuch, public sector sales manager and former Fairfax County investigator, “Users are not required to sign up for an account, and are not required to input any data that they do not want shared. Data security combined with our domestic manufacturing efforts provide a safe, secure, and efficient environment for any public safety agency with our Autel EVO II Dual platform.”
