Drone surveillance solutions ideal for African terrain

Villepinte, France

Drone Volt, a French professional drone manufacturer, recently presented solutions from its new range of aerial surveillance drones at Shieldafrica, from the 24th to the 26th of January 2017, and is due to show them again at a further major event, Enforce Tac, from the 1st to the 2nd of March 2017.

Civilian surveillance drones are currently in demand by a number of public and private organisations to provide security for sensitive sites, infrastructure, events and disaster sites etc.

Within the scope of its international development, Drone Volt will present the latest surveillance models it has developed, including the Hercules UF “Unlimited Flight“ flagship model, at Enforce Tac Public safety trade show, diue to take place in Nuremberg (Germany) over the 1st and 2nd of March 2017.

The company has already presented the portfolio at Shieldafrica, an international security and defence trade show in Abidjan (Ivory Coast) which took place between the 24th and the 26th of January 2017.

“Europe and Africa are two continents in which demand for surveillance drones is increasing markedly. Africa is a dynamic market with strong potential for growth. The difficulty in accessing landlocked areas, the lack of transport infrastructure, the high cost of travel, etc. in this continent make drones a particularly suitable surveillance tool“ says Olivier Gualdoni, CEO of Drone Volt.
