Multi-functional aerial platform now available for up to 5 simultaneous applications
Lexington, Kentucky: The world is buzzing about drones. But, use for more than videography has been slow to materialize because Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (or UAVs) have limited lift capacity and narrow functional capability. Mobile Recon Systems LLC is proud to announce that is no longer the case.
Mobile Recon Systems is introducing the KittyHawk, the first in its family of UAVs that enable high value services currently out of reach for UAVs – supplies transport, inspection and aerial analysis, border and perimeter surveillance, emergency first response, and mapping. “Our aerial multi-functional platform has industry leading integration of lift capacity, functional flexibility, flight time and cost,” says Mobile Recon Systems founder, Mike Dowell. “The KittyHawk can not only be used for reconnaissance, but also more rigorous applications,” he explains. “Carry temperature sensitive supplies of up to 25 pounds in a transport box. Monitor and count wildlife with thermal imaging or other sophisticated cameras. Need to map terrain or inspect a structure? Use a high end LiDAR unit. Monitor weather with a sophisticated 2-point weather station. Our flexible platform offers a myriad of possibilities.”
The KittyHawk is multi-functional, allowing the user to do many things at once. Outfit it with sensors, radiation detectors, radar, weather stations, multi-spectral, thermal, and infrared cameras, and many other devices. On the KittyHawk, operate up to five applications simultaneously. Plus, easily switch devices on the unit to meet your needs.
Key additional features include:
- A payload of up to 26 pounds.
- Full 3K (military grade) carbon fiber body and aircraft aluminum frame.
- 26-inch carbon fiber propellers, which are safely surrounded by the body.
- Up to 30 minutes flight time (varies by payload) from battery power. Onboard power generation is optional for flight times of up to five hours.
- A container for easily transporting supplies, like food and medicine.
- 360 degree photography capability, with two multi-axis gimbals that can accommodate MSOP and HD sport video cameras to simultaneously capture images from below, front, overhead, right and left of the flying platform.

“I am mapping Mayan ruins in Mexico”, says Tim Hare, archaeology professor at Morehead State University. “Before learning of Mobile Recon, my only alternative was to access the regions by airplane. The KittyHawk allows me to get more accurate, detailed maps, even getting around ruins that an airplane simply cannot access.”
The company is currently taking orders for the KittyHawk and seeking funding to bring its higher lift capacity, game changing UAVs to a worldwide market.
