Cameroon has taken delivery of the first batch of Slovenian C-Astral Bramor C4EYE surveillance drones to improve on its ISR capacity.
The new Bramor C4EYE drones will be deployed under the country’s elite Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR) amid escalating tensions in the Anglophone regions.
The Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR) of Cameroon stood up its drone component in 2014, acquiring several Aeronautics Orbiter 2 UAVs, as well as some commercial Dji Phantom quadcopter drones, Mavic Pro drones, Dji Inspire 2s, and a couple of Dji Matrice 600 Pros.
Cameroon also operates Aeronautics Orbiter 2, Orbiter 3 system, as well as Boeing Insitu ScanEagle tactical UAV.
The C-Astral Bramor C4EYE UAS is suitable for operations where real-time video observation and surveillance capability is required.
With an endurance of up to 3 hours, C4EYE features a standard data and payload link of up to 40km LOS, or the optional MANET digital communications capabilities.
The Bramor C4EYE can either be equipped with an EYE-X EO/IR/LI HD2 or HD4 Gimbal high-resolution EO and IR sensor with an optional laser illuminator, capable of detecting, tracking, following and geo-locating targets, objects, features and infrastructure, day and night.
The C4EYE UAS can be used for a myriad of applications such as Search and Rescue, wildfire containment and mitigation, pipeline and infrastructure monitoring, ISR missions, conflict zone surveillance, convoy and transportation support, perimeter monitoring, border monitoring, environmental monitoring, anti-poaching, wildlife observation, remote sensing research and ice flow dynamics.
