Seamless Vehicle Integration.

Fotokite Sigma integrates seamlessly into new and existing vehicles. Various mounting options are available to ensure safe and secure installation of Fotokite systems. Rapid and effortless deployment allows teams to gain immediate situational awareness.

Rugged. Reliable. Rapid to Deploy.

Fotokite Sigma is an industrial-grade tool for Public Safety teams and is offered in vehicle-integrated or rugged carrying case configurations. IP55 rated for safe flight in wind, rain, and snow.

Shared Awareness. On and Off Site.

Live Thermal IR and low-light RGB video delivery on-site comes standard and can be shared with team members for control hand-off and mutual aid responses. Optional remote video streaming via integrated cellular data modem enables off-site collaborators to review and monitor response progress from anywhere.

Safety First.

The Fotokite Sigma is built with safety as a priority. The Fotokite Autopilot enables the automatic launching, flight, and landing with no piloting necessary. The Fotokite Sigma automatically triggers an emergency landing in the case of ground power loss and executes automatic altitude reduction if winds or environmental conditions become too hazardous. Propulsion redundancy comes standard. Automatic system alerts let you know what you need to, when you need to. This gives first responders the ability to focus on their mission, rather than piloting or battery status.
