Fotokite Sigma.

The Fotokite Sigma is built with safety as a priority. Fotokite Autopilot enables the automatic launching, flight, and landing with no piloting necessary. Emergency landings are automatically triggered in the case of ground power loss and automatic altitude reduction is implemented whenever winds or environmental conditions become too hazardous to fly in. This gives first responders the ability to focus on their mission, rather than piloting or battery status.
