The Aeromao Aeromapper Talon Amphibious is a fixed wing UAV system that can be used for inspection and mapping in marine environments. The UAV system delivers high-resolution georeferenced imagery as well as video feed from up to 30 kms from the operators. After completing its mission the UAV returns and safely lands on the water, adequately serving maritime Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations. By design, the UAV can stay indefinitely afloat on the water, and even sustain full immersion without any damage or water intrusion, even in salt water.
