BRINC Launches New LEMUR Drone for Public Safety

BRINC LEMUR 2 drone for public safety

BRINC, a U.S.-based developer and manufacturer in the public safety sector, has announced the release of its next-generation drone, LEMUR 2. The LEMUR 2 is designed to enable law enforcement and public safety professionals to survey areas too dangerous to send a person, assess a threat profile, and de-escalate conflict without putting individuals in harm’s way.

The company’s first LEMUR drone introduced two-way communication capabilities, a glass breaker and optimized systems for indoor flight, along with other features. The LEMUR 2 iteration introduces an intelligent software layer, the company said.

New features include its proprietary BRINC Autonomy Engine, where the drone’s onboard lidar sensor creates a 3D map of its surroundings in real time to enable a suite of capabilities. This includes a 360-degree standby hover that does not rely on light or GPS systems, and an obstacle awareness system that dynamically adjusts speed around objects while still providing complete control to the drone operator for tactical maneuvers. The engine also keeps law enforcement and emergency personnel informed by providing an easy to interpret 2D floor plan to users in real time.

“Today marks the next step on BRINC’s journey to advance drone technology in the service of public safety,” said Blake Resnic, CEO of BRINC. “Our mission at BRINC is to revolutionize public safety by leveraging technology to de-escalate dangerous situations. Each drone deployed to a dangerous situation is one less individual in harm’s way, and a potential life safed. The LEMUR 2 is the next era of first response technology that will undoubtedly make law enforcement and emergency services in our country more efficient and safer for all involved.”

In addition to the autonomy system, the drone includes a sensor array that combines 10 unique systems for supporting the autonomy systems, visual/night/thermal imaging, and two-way communications. This includes a lidar sensor, tracking camera, multiple night vision illuminators, a spotlight with a strobe, a 4K camera, FLIR thermal imager, microphone and loudspeaker.

Video and data is transmitted locally to a custom BRINC controller, and encrypted with AES-256 protocol. The drone is also compatible with mesh networks, allowing for multiple drones to extend each other’s range in large buildings or underground. With an integrated 4G LTE connection, the new drones can securely stream a live camera view and 2D floor plans to stakeholders offsite through a new BRINC LiveOps web platform.
