MTOsentinel & Cavalon Sentinel- Our camera platform

The MTOsport 2017 – or Cavalon – Sentinel is equipped with one of a range of camera equipment to suit different mission requirements such as traffic law enforcement, search and rescue, surveillance, aerial inspection, fire location and tracking and so much more. 

For example, when equipped with the UKRSPECSYSTEMS USG 212 camera, it can track cars and read license plates from 500 feet above ground level. Additionally, it can effectively detect the heat signatures of fires, people, and vehicles on the ground.

This particular camera is a 2-axis stabilized unit with 360 degrees continuous rotation capability, with digital auto video stabilization and target tracking. Its optical zoom capability ranges from zero to 30 times, and its infrared can provide four times zoom. AutoGyro works with a variety of sensor device providers, enabling the right choice of device for the mission profile.

Equipped with the Rotax 915iS – or the 916iS – engine, the MTOSentinel has all the power needed to fulfill your task requirements.
