To combat the challenge and increasing threat of poachers, the Aerostatic Poaching Protection (APP) unit is a tactical tethered aerostat system equipped with a shot detection system and an EO/IR camera. APP is a turnkey system that can be easily set up to fly at up to 1,000 ft.
APP will enable wildlife conservation parks to effectively monitor wildlife while detecting and locating poachers before they can do harm. An aerostat is an ideal platform for protecting wildlife as it provides a visible deterrent to poachers, letting them know they are being monitored. The APP will notify authorities of the location where a gun has been discharged.
