The Scout is a lower cost, lighter payload variant of its big brother; the Ranger. Holding the same hybrid fly/roll/climb navigation capacity, enabled by its wheels and its tilt-rotors, the Scout came as response to increased demand for inspecting smaller inaccessible zones, or zones with smaller entry points such as pipes, tanks, vessels, ducts, shafts and small chambers.
The Scout carries over the rugged design of the Ranger, to suit inspection missions in tough environments, and comes with a degree of water resistance.
The standard payload is mainly visual, but it can be customized to hold any payload below 300g.
The Scout is also used to complement the Ranger where it can be flown in, as a lower cost, lower-risk expendable unit, to pre-explore the inaccessible zone before sending in the Ranger with the the expensive 3D laser mapping apparatus.
