Redding Police Department (CA) UAV Vehicle


This UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) command vehicle was built recently for the Redding Police Department in California. Built on a Mercedes Sprinter 4x4 chassis, the truck has a 3.0L turbo diesel engine with 5-speed automatic transmission. We fitted a large lateral arm awning to the curbside exterior as well as a weatherproof exterior workstation with high resolution display monitor. Bright LED scene lights as well as a complete emergency lighting and siren package was also installed. Inside, there are dual workstations complete with spider base task chairs. We installed custom aluminum cabinetry and a small overhead electronics rack. Adjustable aluminum box pan shelves (11) are also part of the interior layout. D-ring mounts are also included to secure gear. The HVAC system consists of a low profile rooftop A/C unit with wall mounted thermostat and a wall mounted electric heater. Electric power is supplied to the vehicle by an Onan Commercial Quiet 8kW generator housed in a custom fabricated enclosure. A full vehicle surge suppression system is also installed. Interior lighting is bright LED. A total of 3 Samsung LED TV display monitors are also included (2 at the interior workstation, 1 in the outside monitor compartment). We also prewired the vehicle for customer supplied communications radios.

"I was very satisfied with the whole experience and process. I believe that the sales personnel and technicians are very knowledgeable and have years of institutional knowledge that shows in the execution of the unit. My questions were all ways answered immediately and if there was any reach back for additional confirmation it was always followed up with a phone call and email. The open lines of communication provided both of us the full awareness of where we were in the build process and helped eliminate unnecessary delays or unanswered questions. Everyone I encountered during my visits were always smiling and happy while working, which was great to see and experience. This is reflected in the finished product that was noticed by my staff and all others that have visited to see the new addition to our fleet."

The best feature of the vehicle is the flush floor slide-out in the front of the vehicle. It provides a very functional work area and always receives favorable comments.
