A Joint Project
The Ripper Ranger is our new long-range search and rescue drone developed exclusively for Ripper Corp by Australian innovators Swoop Aero.
Ripper Corp and Swoop Aero have partnered to develop the Ripper Ranger Program to deliver the next transformation in beach safety and management; harnessing sustainable drone networks to enable fast deployment of flotation devices and rapid emergency surf rescue responses in cases of suspected drownings, as well as aerial surveillance for marine dangers such as sharks.
The Ripper Ranger will be able to travel long distances along a pre-programmed flight path.
Both Ripper and Swoop Aero have proven tech and unique approvals due to thorough research, diligence, and best practice ops policies.
The Final Stages
Rigorous testing and product development have been undertaken to ensure the Ripper Ranger meets our high standards. Together with Swoop Aero, we are working closely with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) on the required flight operational procedures and safety mechanisms in preparation for the final CASA signoff.
