About Us

With one computer click, Paladin’s autonomous drone deploys to a 911 call from its remote home base and arrives onsite before first responders. Prior to arriving onsite, first responders then have access to a live and controllable video feed where they can gather valuable intel on the situation, plan ahead, and execute immediately upon arrival. In a world in which having information is planning to succeed, it’s dangerous that first responders have so little. Paladin designed an LTE drone and autonomous software controls and data management to make DFR both effective and straightforward to implement.

“To have that unit overhead providing valuable information, intelligence, can be a game changer as to making sure we have good outcomes.”

Chief Ray Schultz, Memorial Village PD

Step-by-Step Call Response

Recieve Call, Initiate Drone, Watch, Call Back

Recieve 911 Call

Once the 911 call is recieved, the dispatcher immediatley begins asking questions to assess the scene and gather useful as much useful information for first responders as possible. Simultaneoulsy, they are relaying information to the first responders. Having a live stream allows for trained first responders to look for helpful information whether it be the location of something, level of danger, crowds, etc.

Deploy Drone

Right when the call is answered, the callers location is sent to Watchtower. Then, just click "start." With one mouse click, Knighthawk automatically takes off and flies to the location. The drone will arrive in less than 90 seconds.

Gather Intel

Knighthawk reaches the scene before first responders enabling them to view the live stream of the scene on any internet-connected device. Watchtower provides situational information to help first responders plan ahead and assist people more efficiently. Zoom in, move the camera, circle around to find better angles, use thermal, and control the drones behavior all in one place with a few clicks. There is no need for a remote controller or an onsite, trained pilot.

Return to Home

Once the situation has been cleared, simply click RTH and the drone automatically flies back to its home base. Once the drone lands, the flight data is automatically uploaded to Watchtower. A few simple clicks get first responders eyes on within 90 seconds.

Case Studies

The following are three Paladin DFR programs. Each case study goes into detail about the program, how it started, and most importantly why. The results section of the case studies show the accomplishments by the department thus far. The beginning outlines why they started followed by how they got their programs up and running within a few months. It will described the FAA BVLOS waiver process, what training was necessary, examples of calls the programs have deployed to, how DFR helped, and more.

How To Start A DFR Program

Paladin is a one-stop solution. We make and provide the drone, software, and data management platform, but we don’t stop there. We obtain all waivers from the FAA on behalf of the department to ensure they are and know how to operate legally. These include any COA’s needed as well as the BVLOS waiver which allows operators to control the aircraft without looking at it. We also train the department on the technology and have them begin deployments only when the department is trained and legal.

Hardware

What kind of range do you need? How much flight time can satisfy distances, call types, and call volumes? Does it have a rechargeable dock and do I need one?

Paladin's Watchtower software integrates with DJI products as well. In order to determine which hardware to use, departments should analyze how much battery life and range they need as well as the capabilities of their current drone inventory.

Software

What kind of capabilities do you need? Who can see the video feed? When and how can they see it? Does the software have ample integrations?

Watchtower is a simple to use, intuitive platform perfect for high stress autonomous flight. An unlimited amount of viewers may watch the feed and departments can control user permissions. With Fleet View, having multiple drones and optimizing their use is automatically done for you. Just click start.

Data Management

Do you have flight logs? How are you reporting to your command staff? To the FAA? Is it automatic logging or manual?

Paladin's Data Management system automatically logs all the flight info you need. With export features, spend more time flying and less time doing paperwork.

FAA

What kind of waivers do you need? How do you get them? What is BVLOS? Visual Observers?

We handle everything. On behalf of the department, we get you a COA (or JCOA) and the BVLOS waiver. Departments do not need visual observers (VO) on the roof at all times. Our VO method works because of our LTE connection and is extremely cost effective.

Training

Who trains the department to use the system? To be VO certified? How does a department use an autonomous drone system?

Our philosophy at Paladin is that you cannot change the world with complex technology unless the complexity is behind the scenes. Our system is easy to use but we also pride ourselves on training a department to be fully ready to use the system before deployments begin.

Maintenence

What happens if I need new batteries? How much are they? How do I get one?

Budgeting can be a grueling task. Included in our yearly recurring software cost is support. Not only do you have access to us when questions arise but should your Paladin aircraft need more batteries, a new prop, etc, we'll send them your way no extra cost.

Range

Built for BVLOS missions, you'll never lose connection no matter how far away you send it. The range is limited by the battery life. At right, the flight log shows a mission in which the drone travelled 3.6 miles away, cirlced the scene, and returned home another 3.6 miles all in 18 minutes with only 37% of battery used.

It protects the police, and it protects the citizens. If I was the bad guy, I’d think twice about coming into Piney Point Village.
