Cloud Ground Control

Monitor entire coastlines using a single web browser with the Little Ripper Lifesaver drones, which were the first in Australia to successfully run multiple drones along the coast. 

These drones operated in Sydney, Newcastle, Port Macquarie in New South Wales, and the Gold Coast in Queensland, using a web browser called Cloud Ground Control developed by our partner Advanced Navigation.

Our major advancements

Spotter AI Software

Ripper TechLab, in partnership with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), has developed the Spotter AI software to detect marine life such as sharks and crocodiles with Sharkspotter and Crocspotter. 

The Spotter suite of technologies is being expanded to include RipSpotter©, DistressSpotter©, PeopleCounter©, and more, as well as a range of sensors (multi and hyperspectral, Thermal Infrared, LIDAR, LASER). 

The processing capability is also being improved with higher bandwidth and efficient onboard processing. By using these technologies, you can help keep your community safe by detecting sharks and crocodiles.

Ripper Live

We are collaborating with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) to develop technology that allows for ultra-low latency live streaming of data from drones to internet browsers, resulting in a delay of less than a second.

The milestones our tech has achieved so far

As the industry leader in drone technology, Ripper TechLab specialises in developing tech-enabled drones for the protection of local communities and saving lives.
