Offering a speacialised thermal capability, Central Drones in conjunction with Sky_Machina will provide solutions  to any scenario – including search and rescue capability, intelligence gathering and surveillance.

We can assist with thermal imagery to assist in the tracking of offenders, or the identification of suspicious heat signatures which may indicate an identified location is being used as a “grow house” for illegal drugs.

Our fixed wing options have extended range options which allow the UAVs to be utilised for long range missions including border control and surveillance, the identification and tracking of offending vehicles or the location of missing persons through thermal imagery.

Where secure transmissions are a must:  Our standard radio links from Doodle Labs RM 915 offer AES 256 and 128 bit encryption; FIPS-2, Level 2 compliant as standard. This should give the majority of our customers the confidence that your links are safe from hacking and any unwarranted attention. However, we know that for highly sensitive operations, that extra layer of encryption isn't only desirable but it is necessary to maintain the highest possible security from start to finish. For this increased security need, we are pleased to offer our customers the Silvus StreamCaster 4200, this ruggedised military spec. radio link offers DES Standard, AES/GCM 128 or 256 bit encryption; FIPS 140-2, Suite B.



Our thermal sensors can assist with search and rescue operations – because when it comes to a missing loved one, no option should be ignored. With Central Australia being a hot spot for trekking and outdoor activities, many people get into trouble with local conditions. We can help identify areas of interest to assist in the search response.



Our UAVs are the latest in their class.

The sensors we employ can provide a depth of clarity that is unrivalled.

When used in conjunction with the RTK Mobile Station (which is high precision GNSS receiver that supports all major global satellite navigation systems) our system provides real time differential corrections that generate centimetre-level positioning data for improved relative accuracy.



With the size and breadth of the Northern Territory – emerging technology is allowing inspections of remote areas without the time, expense or resource allocation previously required. Our systems have up to a 2 hour flight time which can allow us to capture up to 1000Ha saving time and money.

Our thermal imagery can assist in the identification, location, and head counts of pests such as camels, horses and dogs and others. We can also assist in the location and possible counting of endangered species when the thermal capability is fully leveraged in conjunction with our AI programs.



Utilising our state-of-the-art sensors, we can provide detailed inspection data of assets such as road, rail and water infrastructure as well as pipeline inspection (gas leak identification sensors available on request) and mine site analysis. Mine site analysis is essential for the optimisation of mine layout as well as the identification and mitigation of hazards or issues as they emerge. We can also provide detailed data for stockpile management to assist with production and forecast planning. Detailed 3D maps of site areas can be generated to allowing the data holder to provide additional graphical information to stakeholders as  well as authorities or government departments.
