SWALLOW / Weather monitoring drone

SWALLOW
SWALLOW

Airborne drone has great potential in weather and air monitoring due to its smaller size and great agility. The SWALLOW can take anywhere, like the top of the streetlight or the top of the building as its power station, just like a real swallow taking anywhere as its nest. It can immediately set out for monitoring at different height in the city when commanded by the control center, and the user can receive the latest weather information the SWALLOW collects.
