Today, leading drone-in-a-box solution provider Easy Aerial announced Easy Guard Vehicle (EGV), a new line of ultra-portable models of its trusted unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) ground stations.

Specifically designed for installation on mobile platforms, EGV improves upon Easy Aerial’s MIL-STD-810G system, which currently sees use in a wide variety of applications across the world. Owing to its compact size and lightweight, EGV’s UAVs can quickly mobilize, deploy and land from any vehicle type traveling up to 25 miles per hour, on or off-road. Available in three sizes, each system can be integrated with manned, unmanned and optionally manned systems and are all remotely deployable from any location.

Like previous Easy Guard models, EGV can be configured with a tethered, free flight or optionally tethered (untether and go) UAV, enabling optimization for a variety of payload options. EGV models implement topside doors that deploy a separate landing pad when opened, unfolding to extend beyond the box’s footprint. This allows the system to operate a larger UAV with improved safety margins on uneven terrain and on the move. Encrypted data links and non-GPS dependent landing capabilities guarantee the systems can operate in hostile environments. Each of the three systems feature either a 110/220v AC or 18-36v DC (MLD-STD-1275 compatible) power supply option for operating and charging the UAV.

EGV grants operators highly flexible inspection, monitoring and surveillance capabilities – even in remote areas lacking in infrastructure. EGV provides defense organizations with reconnaissance, real-time situational awareness for increased force protection, and communication relays for tactical maneuvering forces, special operations, and dismounted warfighters on the battlefield.

The EGV 50, the smallest model, is designed for small vehicles with less storage capacity, such as light civilian and military all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and compact pickup trucks. The mid-size EGV 70 features increased capabilities, such as a larger UAV with longer endurance and longer tether, ideal for medium and heavy-duty civilian or military pickup trucks and light armored vehicles.The EGV 90, the largest and most powerful in the line, grants the flexibility of housing a quad or hexacopter and can be installed on vehicles including mobile command units, fire support vehicles and armored personnel carriers.

All Easy Aerial systems are AS9100 and ISO9001 certified as well as NDAA Sec. 848 compliant and built with qualified traceable components. Its UAVs and supporting systems are designed, built, and tested at the company’s Brooklyn, N.Y. headquarters. Easy Aerial participates in the DoD Defense Innovation Unit Blue sUAS 2.0 program.
