Silent Falcon UAS Technologies products include the Silent Falcon™ Unmanned Aircraft System,  and the Orion HD25 EO/IR ISR, the Discoverer Mid Wave Infrared, Photogrammetric, and the Falcon Vision HD EO/IR ISR sensors. These are all highly innovative, technologically advanced, state-of-the-art patent pending products designed to have precisely those capabilities demanded by the Commercial, Industrial,  Civil and Public Safety sUAS markets and defense and security agency ISR operators. 

​Silent Falcon™ sUAS

The Silent Falcon™ sUAS is a unique platform with capalilities found only on much larger, more complex and more expensive systems.  It is an all composite sUAS, offered in 3 different wing configurations, that has all day endurance, is portable, and is solar electric powered. The system integrates solar Thin Film Photovoltaic, leading edge modular design, silent, slow spin, high efficiency electric propulsion and state-of-the-art ground control and communications systems to create a logistically independent, low-cost UAV platform that has the electrical power to carry a variety of payloads.

Orion HD25

The Orion HD25, made by Trillium Engineering, is a 2.5-inch stabilized camera platform combining high definition visible and long-wave infrared (LWIR) imaging into a single low-power, low weight and small format package. Combined with industry-leading electromechanical performance, the Orion HD25 represents the most advanced small-scale sensor technology for a wide variety of imaging missions and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) applications.


The Discoverer is the only sUAS payload incorporating a state-of-the-art Mid Wave Infrared (MWIR) camera capable of providing extraordinary video and still MWIR images. The MWIR images can detect fugitive hydrocarbon emissions, defects in roadways, bridges, levees, and can discover buried pipelines, sewer lines, unexploded ordinance and other underground anomalies. 

Photogrammetric Image Payloads

We offer many aerial photogrammetric payloads that can be customized to meet specific customer requirements. We offer photogrammetric sensors that have cameras that have a wide field of view and/or very high image resolution. These sensors can provide a wide variety of meta data including camera settings, GPS position, time settings and sensor attitude. This capability supports either classical aerial photogrammetric processing or modern structure-from-motion algorithms. We also support sensors designed for NVDI vegetation mapping.

​ FalconVision™ 

FalconVision is the leading sensor payload in its Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) class that provides High Definition EO (electro optical) and thermal infrared (IR) imaging, on board High Definition image and metadata processing, image stabilization, data analysis, target tracking and target identification capabilities.
