Military and Paramilitary Applications
The CYGNUS A10 can be used as a highly effective tool in military and paramilitary operations. Its capability to deliver real-time high resolution day or night video along with its ruggedness, portability and ease of use make it an indispensable platform for such applications. The CYGNUS A10 is ideally suited as an ISR platform to support offensive operations over-the-hill recce missions, low intensity conflicts, battlefield damage assessment, deception operations as well as defensive/peacetime operations such as border security, convoy protection, and planning and monitoring battle positions.
Powerline and Pipeline Monitoring
An emerging industrial application for the CYGNUS A10 aerial surveillance system is the monitoring of long stretches of electrical powerlines and oil/gas pipelines for damage, leaks, and security, especially over terrain which is hard to reach over ground. The ease of use and low acquisition and operating cost of the CYGNUS A10 system make it an ideal candidate to automate such tasks for the energy industry.
Natural Resource Management
The CYGNUS A10 also finds applications in managing natural resources such as mineral ores, forests, water bodies, wildlife and marine life. It can assist authorities in mapping and enforcing boundaries of coal and ore mining. It can support wildlife preservation efforts as a surveillance tool against poaching and smuggling activities. It can be used to map and monitor boundaries of forests and water bodies, locate areas of fish population and many such applications which can greatly benefit from low cost aerial surveillance.
