Drone lighting is a critical tool for gathering accurate data, during the day — and especially, at night. Autel Robotics, an unmanned aircraft manufacturer, and FoxFury Lighting, have joined together with lighting equipment made for Autel Robotics EVO II™ Series Aircraft.
Accurate data for applications, such as public safety, require specialized lighting solutions. During a demonstration in Las Vegas last year, the Las Vegas Police Department and Sundance Media Group “demonstrated a nighttime crime scene investigation – where shadowing could mean the difference between documentation that’s admissible in court, or not.”*
FoxFury makes portable, rugged lighting solutions that are a crucial element in crime prevention and seeing that justice is done, thus ensuring the safety of innocent bystanders. They are designed to assist in a wide array of applications. Also, FoxFuryand early in applying their lighting expertise to the drone industry, which enabled them to create drone solutions to help drones fly under any lighting conditions.
Gary DeLuca, CEO of Autel Robotics, explained:
“FoxFury is an industry leader in unmanned and emergency scene lighting. FoxFury filled our need for lighting systems on the original EVO product, and did an outstanding job in designing a seven hard-point mounting system for the EVO II™ aircraft. The seven hard points allow for mounting forthcoming authorized products on the EVO II™ platform.”*
The platform that is owned by Autel and designed by FoxFury will support multiple FoxFury D3060 or D10 lighting systems, making it possible for pilots to be creative with lighting in considering what the need may be in a given situation.
A single D3060 or D10 lighting system can be mounted to fulfill Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) anti-collision lighting requirements. Multiple lights can also be mounted for daylight flight, indoor flight, or creative photography.
The lights are rechargeable by means of USB-C.
Maria Cugini of FoxFury stated:
“We are pleased that Autel Robotics requested our Made in USA D3060 lights for their lighting needs, and it’s a strong addition to their Made in USA EVO II™ Dual offering. With bi-directional lighting, the D3060 is an ideal lighting tool for indoor and outdoor flight in either day or night environments. FoxFury Lighting is proud to offer Made in USA content based lighting products to Autel Robotics customers.”*
According to The Public Safety Sales Manager for Autel Robotics, John Kuch:
“We believe that lighting is a critical component, and Autel wants to encourage pilots to use safety-vetted, authorized lighting systems for our aircraft. This is why we offer the option of a lighting saddle-only, or a full kit of saddle and two D3060 lights. Additional lighting units are available from Autel dealers.”*
Because drone lighting is a critical tool for gathering accurate data, during the day — and especially, at night, Autel and FoxFury, joined together with lighting equipment made for AutelRobotics EVO II™ Series Aircraft. Such a joint venture provided accurate data for applications, such as public safety, which require specialized lighting solutions.
Thankfully, FoxFury was early in applying their lighting expertise to the drone industry, creating drone solutions to help drones fly in any lighting condition, which is very important in crime prevention because it makes the streets safer in the night due to the great outdoor night environments as well as exceptional indoor lighting with tremendous benefit to us all!
