The Rapidly Deployed Aerial Surveillance System (RDASS) Precision by Leptron UAS, Inc. is a vertical takeoff and landing multirotor platform used for stability, versatility and professional-grade remote sensing. The RDASS Precision model offers the same aerodynamic aircraft design as the RDASS HD, but it integrates a military-grade autopilot system with precision GPS and an advanced inertial navigation system. The RDASS is commanded from Leptron's Precision Ground Control Station (PGCS) that supports autonomous flight operations with the option of taking direct control at any time. The PGCS also offers the pilot superior situational awareness by displaying aircraft position on a moving map and real-time video from the aircraft's camera(s).
The RDASS camera mounting system accepts Leptron stabilized or fixed gimbal configurations. Each gimbal is perfectly balanced to minimize power consumption to optimize in-air performance. Additionally, the RDASS Precision can be equipped with navigation LEDs, red and blue strobe lights, and additional video viewing stations. With dozens of user defined system configurations available, the RDASS Precision is an ideal choice for law enforcement and military operations.

RDASS™ Overview: The Leptron RDASS™ HD offers simplicity with a single case for the helicopter drone, video, spare batteries and charger. The system offers stunning HD video and the video is from an RDASS taking video of both an Avenger and an RDASS in the air.
Leptron Utility Flights: The Leptron RDASS™ and Avenger™ are used to inspect utility lines. The systems offer both HD video and infrared camera systems. In addition, live view camera views allow ground personnel the ability to safely view potentially dangerous insulators and high tension power equipment.
RDASS™ Industrial Use: The Leptron RDASS™ HD is used for industrial safety inspections, quarry blasting and topographic mapping. The system utilizes a full autopilot in high winds and extreme conditions with a live HD camera view.
RDASS™ Law Enforcement: The Leptron RDASS™ offers simplicity and portability for law enforcement. The system can be hand launched or landed. The system offers up close views and the ability to offer views for SWAT, accident scene reconstruction, search and rescue among many.
RDASS™ High Definition: The Leptron RDASS™ HD offers the ability to view real time in High Definition. The system uses encrypted 720-1080p viewing with a 12” Daylight LDC or any other HDMI ready LCD. The range of the system is up to 1 mile.
RDASS™ Commercial: The RDASS 4 is used by an aerial photography company with a stabilized camera gimbal and GoPro 3. The system was flown in fully autonomous mode with GPS autopilot mode from a wireless controller and by a novice pilot. The system has a real time video system with a heads up display that indicates on-screen data for altitude, satellites, signal strength and battery strength.
RDASS™ Real Estate: The Leptron RDASS™ HD is used for aerial photography with a stabilized camera gimbal and GoPro to produce stunning HD photos and video. The simple and easy system can record views and viewpoints that were previously un-attainable.
RDASS™ Commercial: The RDASS™ HD is flown with a GoPro Hero 3 and stabilized video for an automotive car race. The system has a real time video system with a heads up display that indicates on-screen data for altitude, satellites, signal strength and battery strength.
RDASS™ Commercial: The RDASS HD uses a stabilized GoPro Hero 3 for video. The system can maintain 3D flight stability in winds up to 20MPH. The system shows the video output live on an LCD.
