SkyWatch safely raises and lowers in 90 seconds. Operators have 360° visibility from an ergonomic command desk in the temperature-controlled cabin. Optional public address system, full-function siren, and roof-mounted, high-powered searchlights with internal pan/ tilt control allow operators to alert ground support and crowds of an immediate threat. Wireless video streaming and remote control allow operators to take advantage of the elevated perspective without actually sitting in the cabin.
