Aerial tech company Anzu Robotics has entered the drone market, launching two new enterprise drone platforms, Raptor and Raptor T, designed for “geopolitical and cybersecurity concerns.”

Responding to ongoing geopolitical concerns and a push for domestic production of drone technologies, the Raptor series’ hardware and software is entirely developed in the U.S., with the platforms driving the drones designed in collaboration with Syracuse-based Aloft Technologies.

“These platforms meet the highest standards of quality, reliability and innovation,” said Randall Warnas, Anzu Robotics’ CEO. “With our strategic manufacturing and software development partnerships and commitment to security, transparency and performance; we’re confident that our drones will meet the diverse needs of public safety agencies and industries across the country.”

Aloft Technologies Founder and CEO Jon Hegranes added that data protection and privacy were primary factors in the drone systems’ design.

“Hosted on our secure, domestic servers, we ensure that every flight captured, every piece of data collected and every decision made is underpinned by the highest standards of data protection and privacy,” Hegranes said. “Together with Anzu Robotics, we are setting a new benchmark for trust and security in the drone industry.”

The Raptors are designed to collect high-level footage of an environment for inspection purposes, pitched as a solution “for nearly any small uncrewed aerial system user” by Anzu. Both drone models come with an array of high-resolution cameras, for regular and thermal imaging.

“Drones undoubtedly generate efficiencies, cost savings and safety benefits,” said Warnas, “and we haven’t begun to unlock their potential to advance the world for the better."
