Silent Flyer has received a lot of attention after the DroneX Expo in London, last month where we demonstrated the Silent Flyer drone publicly for the first time. The Silent Flyer is designed to use morphable, flapping wings for both propulsion and maneuvering – rendering this bio-inspired robotic bird a disruptive new offering amongst commercially-available drone solutions. An alternative for a range of civilian and military applications, Flygildi´s Silent Flyer surveillance drone aims to fill the gap left by conventional UAVs by using wings instead of rotors for propulsion, making it stealthy and quiet as it flies overhead just like a bird.
Inspired by nature, the Silent Flyer is a unique and patent-protected design that can be designed to mimic a wide range of avian species, with the first iteration of the prototype designed to mimic a seagull in shape and incorporating AI-backed flying patterns.
Initially created for defense applications and covert enemy troop monitoring due to its bird-like visual appearance and movement characteristics, the Silent Flyer is also ideally-suited for civilian security and surveillance scenarios in which covert operation is essential or beneficial. Such scenarios include monitoring crimes such as human trafficking, drug trafficking, environmental crimes, animal poaching, and other types of criminal activities that tend to evade noticeable observation.
Silent Flyer can be a particularly essential tool in border monitoring and migration management, as well as in fishing vessel surveillance, helping to detect illegal fishing, fish dumping, maritime pollution, or performing emissions monitoring. Whenever the presence of a noticeable observer would prevent or handicap successful crime fighting, the Silent Flyer can be the tool of choice.
