First responders constantly deal with life or death situations that require immediate assistance, but sometimes, that just isn’t possible, whether due to the location or other factors. Atlanta-based Sonin Hybrid is developing a Recruit Drone that aims to keep first responders safe and extend their missions like they never could have before. It achieves this by using patent-pending gasoline and battery-powered system to recharge batteries while in flight. Read more for additional pictures and information.

The Recruit also comes equipped with a high-tech payload that includes 30X optical/12X digital zoom 4K video camera with fixed and mobile target tracking, a forward-looking infrared (FLiR) camera with night vision, PA speakers, spotlight, and additional sensors for first responder missions. When all of this is combined with its carbon fiber body, lightweight airframe, and Sonin’s hybrid system, it can fly longer and faster than traditional drones

While we were in the process of finalizing the design of our hybrid power system for drones, we realized that we could get the most range by designing our own airframe. The next question was: for who? There were plenty of commercial drones out there, but very few were specifically manufactured for first responders. Well before the onset of the pandemic, we decided that police and firefighters needed this technology the most, and immediately set out to build the Recruit,” said Curtis Foster, founder of Sonin Hybrid.
