In recent years, UK-based innovation powerhouse, BCB International, have developed a number of novel products which would not be out of place in a James Bond film including self-inflating body armour, ballistic protective underwear dubbed 'Blast Boxers' and non-lethal boat stopping systems. Earlier this year, the company commercialised its range of unmanned air systems which vary in sizes and can be deployed in confined spaces, maritime environments as well as in search and rescue operations.

BCB International's Managing Director, Andrew Howell, said: "Following successful trials and training in India as well as an unspecified European Country, the first deliveries of our SQ4 unmanned air system represent an important milestone for the company.

"The customers had quite different needs. One of the end users is a Police special surveillance team and the other a specialist military force. While the end use is different, both had similar evaluation trials in so far as the flight duration of 35 minutes and range at 2.4km were both rigorously tested and proven."

BCB International also had to prove as part of the training package that the SQ4 was quick to launch and easy to operate.

Andrew Howell added: "Set in full auto mode a mission can be activated within minutes and the SQ4 can be left to conduct the mission in a fly and forget method which can be overridden at any time during the flight. This function allows the soldier or police officer to carry out their duties without having to become a pilot."

Weighing in at under 600 grams (battery included), the small, powerful and agile SQ4 falls into less rigorous regulatory controls than larger and heavier UAVs with comparable performance characteristics."

The SQ-4 is the most advanced small VTOL UAV’s available today. Packed with excellent unique features, it is ideal for both military and civilian use. Designed to fly into very small spaces, including indoors, the SQ-4 can be controlled or observed from literally anywhere in the world.

The SQ-4 has two high resolution cameras that can be switched from 90 degree angle down to 130degrees and up angle of 75degrees. The 3.6mm lens on each camera provide a 87 degree FOV diagonal and has a low light sensitivity. Night vision is aided by a powerful spot light that is strong enough to illuminate a room or provide searching at night (limited to 20 meters range). A thermal camera can replace one of the fixed cameras if required (separate price on application).

The SQ-4 is fitted with LIDAR as standard. Optical Flow array can also be fitted to assist with indoor flying on certain models. In cases where the drone is required to operate in close proximity with other objects it is advisable to fit propeller.
