Qube®

Dispatch. Detect. Decide.

Qube is one of the latest innovations from AeroVironment, built on 25 years of experience providing Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to the military. AeroVironment has captured the same military ruggedness that makes our UAS the most prolific in the market but simplified the operating control system, making it ideal for the needs of law enforcement, fire and first responders. When it comes to a professional grade, mission-critical UAS built for extended and repeated use, AeroVironment delivers. Qube is easy to operate, with advanced features not found on off-the-shelf systems.

Qube is a rugged, reliable and easy to operate small UAS specifically targeting the needs of law enforcement, fire and first responders. The packaged system fits easily in the trunk of a car, and can be assembled and ready for flight in less than five minutes to provide a rapidly deployable eye in the sky, transmitting live video directly to the operator at a fraction of the cost of manned aircraft.


With its impressive 40-minute flight endurance, built-in safety features and intuitive user interface, Qube provides the ability to make command decisions without putting humans in harm’s way. Qube is the ideal solution for missions where time is short and risk is high protecting lives and property.
