Being that beaches in Australia are a popular pastime for citizens and visitors alike, the 'Little Ripper' shark warning drone is designed to help implement early warning capabilities.
Set to roll out in New South Wales, the 'Little Ripper' drone is a modified military drone that will offer guards on the coast the ability to see live footage from up to 62-miles away. The 'Little Ripper' drone can fly for up to 150-minutes to ensure comprehensive footage is obtained of surrounding waters.
The 'Little Ripper' shark warning drone is also designed to help operate as a rescue vehicle. The drone is packed with a series of life-saving accessories like floatation devices and shark repellant to help stranded beachgoers in the event of an emergency.
