PUBLIC SAFETY SOLUTIONS

Aerial Video

We started out as a manufacturer of remote-controlled aircraft for model-making enthusiasts. Coming from this background, we recognize that safety is the cornerstone of the usability and capability of our products. This belief extends to the empowerment of the people who keep us safe every day. From Fire and Rescue to the Coast Guard and Law Enforcement, we believe a view from above will help first responders overcome obstacles and make us safer. Our humble beginnings started with innovation and accessibility in the aircraft industry. From the first commercially successful ready-to-fly fixed wing RC airplane, to ground-breaking electric aircraft and next-generation aerial video quadcopters, Yuneec has pushed the limits above and beyond in electric aviation for over 15 years.

Evidence Capture Solutions


Built on Panasonic’s tradition of video surveillance excellence for law enforcement, the Arbitrator® Body Worn Camera takes evidence collection to the next level.

The Arbitrator BWC is constructed with a single or two-piece design, making it lightweight and IP54-rated to provide officers with a better way to capture tamper-proof, unbiased video in nearly any condition.

Recording evidence in 720p HD, the Arbitrator BWC provides the video clarity needed to accelerate convictions in court, and seamlessly integrates with Panasonic’s SafeServ™ Evidence Management Software. By cultivating video evidence from the Arbitrator BWC in unison with Arbitrator in-car video systems and Panasonic fixed-surveillance cameras, law enforcement agencies can now depend on a unified evidence management platform to preserve every link in the chain of evidence. Plus, with flexible storage options, evidence can be stored locally, through the cloud or using a hybrid of both, to help control TCO and fit into any agency’s needs.

The HD-quality video capture offered by the Arbitrator® BWC protects your officers when worn. Engineered with features upgraded based on feedback from real officers’, the Arbitrator BWC provides 130 degrees of evidence capture with GPS metadata, pre- and post-event recording and easy offloading with WiFi. When paired with the Arbitrator 360° HD in-car digital video recording system and the Unified Evidence Management System (UEMS) software suite, it represents a comprehensive video evidence capture solution for your agency.

The Arbitrator BWC is engineered for law enforcement use and MIL-STD-810G-tested for resistance to shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, dust, moisture and other harsh conditions With a variety of mounting and secondary camera options, the Arbitrator BWC goes fearlessly where other cameras cannot. For the officer who is required to wear pounds of equipment weight is a big factor, so at 4.6 oz. the Arbitrator BWC is a lightweight, professional looking addition to your uniform.
