Sea Dragon

// DESCRIPTION

Originally designed for the US Military's Pacific Command and to specifically to target illegal fishing in the Pacific Ocean, Technology Service Corporation (TSC)'s Sea Dragon is an adaptable intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) mission system. The system can be adapted for a variety of different aircraft, with a payload that is also customizable to suit different mission needs.

Bells and whistles: The Sea Dragon system was designed with an eye towards keeping costs low and finding new value in existing technologies. The system includes a synthetic aperture radar, electro-optical/infrared/high definition (EO/IR/HD) camera for vessel identification, satellite communications via internet and video broadcast capabilities.

Flexible to meet needs: Although the Sea Dragon has been tested on a Cessna 337 Skymaster aircraft, it is modular and platform-agnostic, and can therefore be mounted on a number of platforms - manned or unmanned.
