UAV Solutions, Inc. (UAVS) announced today that it will display a number of new fixed wing unmanned systems at the annual Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Unmanned Systems 2015 event to be held May 4-7, 2015, in Atlanta, Ga.
In booth #1109 the company will introduce the Talon 120LE, a lightweight hand-launched air vehicle and the Sidewinder, a high altitude, multi fuel, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) asset. The Intruder UAS, a multiple intelligence gathering platform with a gross take-off weight of 850 lbs., will occupy booth #2303.
With a wingspan of 12.5 ft., the Talon 120LE is a 16 lb. electric air vehicle that flies for nearly 2.5 hours. This affordable system was created with a design-for-manufacturing philosophy with open architecture software and hardware components that provide customers with future flexibility. Ideal for inspecting crops, surveilling power lines or conducting search and rescue missions, the Talon 120LE has a payload capacity of 2.5 lbs.
The jet powered Sidewinder UAS flies at high altitudes and operates in a low vibration environment ideal for ISR payloads. With more capability than a standard two-stroke piston engine, the Sidewinder can use various heavy fuels including diesel, kerosene and Jet A. The Sidewinder has a wingspan of 16 ft. and a payload capacity of 10 lbs.
In booth #2303, UAVS will feature the new Intruder, a multiple intelligence gathering platform capable of operating at higher density altitudes. This versatile system is able to collect information via satellite communication, signals intelligence, communications intelligence and imagery intelligence. The tractor engine provides the aircraft with greater propulsion efficiency and noise reduction. The Intruder has retractable landing gear and the agnostic, center-of-gravity mounted payload location accommodates from 75 to 100 lbs.
In addition to the UAS highlighted above, UAVS also will feature its multi rotor unmanned systems – Phoenix 60, Phoenix 30 and Phoenix 15 – at the show as well as the Dragon View camera sensor.
Dragon View sensors can be integrated onto unmanned vehicles, antenna towers, to buildings or to other structures to provide day and thermal imagery, video recordings, object tracking and geolocation data. The sensors are lightweight, mechanically and digitally stabilized gimbals with electro-optical and infrared cameras. Buyers will have the option to customize lens size and resolution. Prices for these sensors start at $13,179.
Weighing approximately 1.4 lbs., the sensors can easily be mounted on UAV Solutions unmanned vehicles (or vehicles developed by other manufacturers), on antenna towers and to other structures to provide “additional eyes” for police organizations. Operating at 10.6 watts, the low power draw enables more efficient use of the battery system providing longer duration.
