The Sonin Hybrid Recruit drone is built with a fully-equipped flight time over three hours and can reach speeds over three times faster than most of the fastest commercial drones available today.
ATLANTA, Sept 22, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Atlanta-based drone manufacturer Sonin Hybrid has just unveiled a revolutionary 140MPH+ drone (with FAA waiver) built exclusively for first responders. The Sonin Hybrid Recruit has a fully-equipped flight time over three hours and can reach speeds over three times faster than most of the fastest commercial drones available today. As a result of its enhanced capabilities, the Sonin Hybrid Recruit will keep first responders safe and extend their missions.
Despite the number of police, firefighters, and government officials flying drones as part of their duty to protect and serve, few drones are designed for first responders. The limitations of battery-powered drones prevent first responders from executing longer missions and carrying additional equipment that can extend their capabilities.
The Recruit drone uses Sonin Hybrid's patent-pending gasoline and battery-powered system to recharge batteries while in flight. The Recruit is also equipped with a high-tech payload including 30X optical/12X digital zoom 4K video camera with fixed and mobile target tracking, Forward Looking InfraRed (FLiR) camera with night vision, PA speakers, spotlight, and additional sensors for first responder missions.
