Unmanned Aerial Vehicles equipped with aerial video surveillance cameras are used for border surveillance, perimeter security, and early warning intrusion detection. Yet this Unmanned Aerial Vehicle or UAV is not your average Autonomous Unmanned Micro Aerial Vehicle or AUMAV, because it does more than just conduct aerial surveillance.
Introducing the MicroDrone Icarus Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, administered by a single user, and able to deploy unique abilities for many peacekeeping applications.

Attack Mode: The system is capable of remotely rendering hostile personnel incapacitated with less-than-lethal force, making it the only UAV capable of defending itself in close quarter combat scenarios. The Attack Mode can be configured to employ facial recognition and laser targeting technology when dealing with hostile people in remote countrysides or crowded city environments.
Counter-Sniper Operations: Sniper detection and management are performed using live command controls from the operator’s remote interface. The system can be configured to deploy countermeasures to repel a would-be sniper after possible threats have been detected and confirmed. Threat neutralization generally involves the application of less-then-lethal options.
EOD Detection: Unmannded Aerial Vehicle uses MicroDrone sensor technology to detect buried objects. This method of discovery is vital when alerting the user in hostile environments to the presence of land mines or radio fired mines on the route taken by civilians, protective forces, and diplomatic corps.
Aerial Video Surveillance: Live video feed broadcast to users as well as stored video imagery. In the 1960’s, U2 Spy Plane pilots took surveillance photos ground installations from the sky, and now Unmanned Aerial Vehicles such as the Icarus MicroDrone can do just that. The difference: no pilot is required, just someone who can operate the easy to use flight controls and monitor live video imagery through the portable control center.
Stealth: The Icarus Microdrone is able to hover over an area under surveillance with near silent lift propulsion. This enables the remotely operated aerial vehicle to function in urban environments without alerting those under surveillance to its presence.
Remote Control, GP Routing, & Vertical Take Off – Landing (VTOL): VTOL or Vertical Take Off and Landing enables the Micrordone UAV to launch instantly under confined areas.
Flight plan routing based on preset GPS coordinate programming or radio controlled operation. This comes in handy when the UAV travels out of the operators line of sight. A Geofence or area you pre-configure with GPS waypoints are then engaged to guide the UAV on a flight plan for reconnaissance missions.
Mission Integration: Multiple configurations are to accommodate various payloads. Integrated solutions include high resolution still shot cameras, video camera systems, test equipment / telemetry, detection equipment, and other systems to enhance functionality.
When combined with the Microdrone base system, the ICARUS ATFP Platform adds valuable tools for detection of buried Improvised Explosive Devices (IED’s). The system is also remotely able to immobilize hostile personnel with less-than-lethal force, making the UAV the only UAV capable of defending itself in Close Quarter Combat scenarios.
The UAV with its silent operation can protect VIP’s from assassination by performing aerial observation, buried object detection, facial recognition, and laser targeting of hostile personnel. The system uses less-than lethal force or remote CS/CN tear gas deployment, and is also invaluable for counter-sniper detection and neutralization.
