Rapidly Deployable Aerial Surveillance System

 4 Rotor Electric UAV

RDASS 4 Rotor Video Demo

Introducing the ground breaking HSE RDASS Q1000™ Helicopter. This revolutionary new platform creates a single high performance helicopter airframe with the ability to fly stabilized HD video. The patent pending design is derived from thousands of hours of research and development and is designed specifically for industrial use and maximum flight time with a minimum of down time. The HSE RDASS™ is the only UAV helicopter on the market today that has been designed from the ground up with a built in autopilot and navigation system that allows for simple flight and easy use for non-RC users. The system boasts the ability to be ready to fly under 5 minutes from an iPad or wireless remote control. This allows for the ultimate in portability and rapid deployment


  • Modular: Easily to replace all elements
  • Payload: Carry HD video and FLIR for Live Video
  • High Performance: Modular Carbon fiber chassis and modular electronics (Patent Pending
  • Ultimate mobility : Single Case for RDASS, Radio, Video LCD, batteries and charger

  • Winds: Rated @ 30 MPH, Usable: 15 MPH
  • Altitude: 12,000 ft WGS
  • Dual Mode: Wireless and/or Ground Station Missions: RC Photography and First Responder mission requirements

Users: Beginner R/C Pilots and Intermediate PC Users. The autopilot is integrated with the HSE helicopter and handles all functions of flight to allow the HSE vehicle to fly entirely autonomously with simple input from the wireless radio. The software allows the RDASS to fly in dual modes including ‘Sticks Mode’ and (Optional) ground station mode with GPS based waypoints. This system offers the ability to configure lost communication and automated landing functions. This system is ideal for medium range up to 1 mile ground station operations and missions that require fast deployment and portable surveillance perimeters and light camera payloads.

UAV Applications

  • High speed chases. The UAV follows suspect vehicle instead of patrol car to minimize danger to civilians, and the suspect will not know they are being followed. License plates can also be viewed.

  • Red light violations. Plane can loiter above dangerous intersections for hours and record video of infractions and read license plates. Can follow suspect if necessary.

  • Highway patrol for traffic regulation enforcement

  • Civil disasters. Can provide images of affected areas quickly and economically.

  • Border/Coastal patrol. Inexpensively patrol water, marinas, etc. for suspicious activity.

  • Event monitoring for better crowd control.

  • Fire mapping. Where is the fire heading, how fast, etc?

  • High risk patrol.

  • Low cost patrol.

  • Find grow houses or illegal narcotics manufacturers. Thermal imaging will detect structures emitting high heat.

  • Inexpensive search and rescue. Can search large areas of water more economically and much more safely than manned boats or aircraft.

  • Hazardous search and rescue. During periods of high winds and storm, search without endangering the searchers.

  • Traffic monitoring/accident investigation. Can be on station more quickly than ground vehicles to provide command and control center.

Different activities require different UAS platforms. For instance the UAS platform to follow a motorcycle at 200 mph for minutes is different than the UAS platform to search for a lost boat at sea. We can accommodate almost any activity desired.
