The Fotokite Sigma is deployed and used daily by a variety of public safety departments in real-world missions. Key advantages that this situational awareness system provides are added safety to your team, added efficiency in your response with team resource savings, and simplicity of deployment without the same safety problems and regulatory hurdles as traditional drones.

The Fotokite Sigma consists of the Ground Station and the Kite. A tablet or computer runs the Fotokite Live App which shows the real-time thermal and low-light video streams, giving teams actionable information throughout their mission safely and reliably; no piloting necessary.

Fotokite Sigma situational awareness system is available in 3 different configurations:

Rooftop Box - Built directly into the roof rack of light or heavy Public Safety vehicles, Fotokite provides the first practical daily-use tool for aerial intelligence.

Transport Case - Packaged in a rugged transport-ready case, Fotokite Sigma is a flexible solution ready for use across various missions, teams, and vehicles.

Tray Mount - Built-in to the side compartment of a fire apparatus or command vehicle, Fotokite becomes an integral part of the command team operations.
