Gsafety UAVs are Chinese UAVs developed by Anhui Ze-Zhong Safety Science and Technology Co., Ltd. (Gsafety,安徽泽众安全科技有限公司). As of end of 2013, all of UAVs developed by Gsafety are either nmanned blimps or multirotors.

Unmanned blimp[edit]

The development of Gsafety UAVs rooted back in the realization of the need to provide aerial platform for disaster prevention and relief effort, because the ground-based communication system might be destroyed by natural disasters. In comparison to reconstructed ground communication stations, an aerial platform provides a temporary communication relay stations for mobile ground units in much rapid response time. Gsafety evaluated possible options and concluded that an unmanned blimp is best suited to meet the requirement. One of the most important requirement of an aerial platform of communication relay station is to be stationary while airborne, and in comparison to unmanned helicopters and multirotors, blimps can meet such requirement at much lower cost while having much longer endurance. Gsafety therefore developed a series of unmanned blimps for emergency communication relaying, aerial surveillance and other missions.[2] As of end of 2013, two of Gsafety unmanned blimps have been deployed by Chinese law enforcement and governmental agencies, including a man portable version and a larger version. In addition, a stationary balloon has been developed for the same purpose.[3]
