Law Enforcement agencies

Law enforcement agencies throughout the world are always seeking out new ways of gathering evidence and tracking down criminals. With the increased need for surveillance and eyes on scene operations, police and border control agencies are turning to drones for quicker and more accurate results for a fraction of the cost of a conventional manned approach. Using ISR gimbal payloads, law enforcement agencies can get real time and uninterrupted aerial surveillance broadcast to several departments like never before. Conventional manned flights are notoriously expensive, intermittent due to priority of targets and fuel capacity and not always available when they are needed. By incorporating drone technology for monitoring efforts, law enforcement agencies can gain an aerial advantage for longer in more areas than ever before.

Law enforcement applications that a Carbonix RPAS can support are:

  • Crime investigation & evidence gathering
  • Locating stolen goods
  • Boarder control and surveillance
  • Search & Rescue
  • Aerial surveillance & target stake out
  • Assist with arrests
  • Riot control
  • Vehicle tracking
  • Drug house detection
  • Pre and post incident planning & assessment

Search and Rescue

Search and Rescue Agencies throughout the world are continuously anticipating when they will be called to their next emergency and where it may be. With over 50,000km of coastline and more than 10,000 beaches, Australia’s search and rescue resources are spread thin and helicopter support isn’t always available. In addition to this, search and rescue Agencies are inundated with false alarms and multiple situations occurring at once. This high demand and life critical work can be undone in seconds with one wrong move. By employing drones as first responders to help search and rescue agencies direct help where needed faster and more accurately, makes this technology critical for life saving efforts in many parts of the world. In addition to directly saving lives, these drones can also be used for shark detection. Agencies using drone technology are more agile and capable of maintaining safety and protecting the potentially vulnerable beach goers in an emergency where visibility or safety may be compromised.

Search and rescue applications that a Carbonix RPAS can support are:

  • Aerial surveillance & search & rescue
  • First response & situational awareness
  • Early warning shark detection

Disaster Management

Disaster Management Agencies in many areas of the world are on high alert for much of the year as many disasters are seasonal and frequent. The best response tends to be the fastest response, being able to search for victims and survivors, assess damage to infrastructure and landscape and identify areas that need addressing before disaster strikes is vital to saving lives and property. The summer of 2019/ 2020 is considered as one of the worst years on record for rural bush fires in Australia. Even with their impressive arsenal of over 140 manned aircraft, they were stretched to their limit for months. These conventional aircraft are notoriously dangerous, expensive, limited to day flights and by their availability. However, using drone technology would give more aerial coverage over more of the torched landscape. Their fast response time coupled with their remote piloting capability makes UAVs a much safer option for command and control surveillance in a fire arena. Understandably, drones are a viable solution for first response as a disaster unfolds, to monitor human presence, access damage to both property and land and even in preventing disasters in the first place, through assessing large areas and reducing risk.

Disaster management applications that a Carbonix RPAS can support are:

  • Aerial surveillance and real time situational awareness
  • Resource monitoring
  • Damage assessment
  • Back burning and flood prevention
  • Dry lighting storm and spot fire monitoring
  • Landslide analysis
  • Flood modelling
  • Earthquake damage
  • Storm water management
  • Landslide analysis


Military Agencies throughout the world were the first adopters of drone technology for intelligence, surveillance, and recognisance missions in hostile areas. Their ability to provide armed forces with real-time imagery for boots on the ground and command and control makes them ideal assets to give them the upper hand over the enemy and to protect their troops and infrastructure. Notoriously, Military spec. drones tend to be expensive, difficult to procure and even more difficult to customise due to red tape. A Carbonix UAV however, is advanced enough to fulfil many roles a Military drone can for a fraction of the price without compromising functionality. Furthermore, with our customisation feature, your drone can be made specific to your mission.

Military applications that a Carbonix RPAS can support are:

  • Situational awareness
  • Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance 
  • Counter drug operations
  • Battle assessment damage
  • Perimeter and border patrols
