Live video feed
A VTOL UAV with a live video feed, which can include both RGB (Red, Green, and Blue) and IR (Infra-Red) cameras, can provide real-time footage of the area of operations. This can be used for reconnaissance and surveillance tasks, such as identifying enemy positions, assessing threats, and tracking movement. The live video feed can be transmitted to ground stations or other aircraft, allowing commanders to make informed decisions in real-time.
IR imagery can be particularly useful for missions such as border patrol, where IR imagery can help detect smugglers or illegal crossings. IR imagery can also be used for search and rescue operations, as it can help locate people or animals in distress by detecting their body heat.
