HAEVIC INTRODUCES THE FIRST EVER TRANQUILIZER DART GUN INSTALLED ON A DRONE
Again rewriting the history books, HAEVIC today introduced the first ever tranquilizer dart gun installed on a drone to the public.

In order to dart animals, the game farming community traditionally rents a helicopter to chase down the animal to dart it from the air. But this solution also implies significant costs from the game farmer.

HAEVIC has now released an elegant solution to this problem by installing a high pressure air gun on a drone. Once the drone becomes air-borne the pilot seeks out and follows the animal through his on-board camera sights. Once he found the animal, he locks onto the animal with a laser beam.

Much like a military aircraft, the dart gun follows the head movement of the pilot as the pilot turns his head to follow the animal through his camera headset. Once the laser beam has locked onto the animal, the pilot can activate and shoot the dart accurately on the correct spot.

The significant advantages to this solution are numerous. First of all the overall cost of darting game is brought down tremendously, while the game is far less exposed to stress due to a helicopter chasing down the animals.

HAEVIC is now receiving pre-orders from prospective clients with a deposit of R250 000 securing your aerial dart gun. To place your pre-order, email your full details to info@haevic.co.za
