With its V-150 VTOL UAS platform, UMS SKELDAR has achieved automatic remote flight. To accomplish this, the V-150’s software was upgraded to make the program fully automated and to permit a person not existing at the Distant Pilot Station to security drone and remotely manage the crewless helicopter from thousands of meters away. UMS SKELDAR will now send potential customers worldwide online product demos, allowing them to test the device without having to fly completely. This capability is particularly useful in the current environment of tightened airspace. The demonstrations will also provide customers with remote Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations, with applications in the search and rescue, border control, oil, and military sectors.
Following an agreement with the Marine Corps Systems Command, Martin UAV provided its V-BAT VTOL UAV (crewless aerial vehicle) as a contractor-owned/contractor-operated operation. With the V-BAT, which was also supplied to the US Army, the Marine Corps hopes to improve tactics, strategies, and procedures extended real-world operations. This aims to assess candidates and choose a replacement for the Army’s current RQ-7 Shadow UAS.
The V-BAT 128 has been upgraded with a new engine that produces more horsepower and has a persistence of 11 hours while retaining its small footprint. The new platform also has a higher ceiling of 20,000 feet MSL and mission-specific payloads of up to 25 pounds that can be swapped out. In the Eastern Pacific, the V-BAT UAV improved counter-narcotics operations. In support of Multi-Domain Operations, AEWE evaluates Cross-Domain Maneuver principles and capabilities at the lower operational echelon. This experimentation force will employ mutually reinforcing lethal and nonlethal capabilities across multiple realms (air, ground, space, and cyberspace) to generate a synergistic impact that enhances relative fighting power and offers overmatch electromagnetic spectrum and the information set.
The JUMP 20 is a multi-mission vertical takeoff and landing drone platform with a range of 180 kilometres and a flight time of 14 hours and more. JUMP 20, a crewless aircraft, was recently demonstrated to be capable of vertical takeoff and landing, eliminating the need for a runway. Customers can deploy the JUMP 20 in various locations and environments thanks to its runway independence, which reduces the logistical footprint needed to operate it. JUMP 20 can also accommodate various payload options, providing true flexibility and multi-mission capability to meet a wide range of customer needs.
Delta Quad Pro-
Avant, a medical transport drone operator, used a Delta Quad Pro UAV (crewless aerial vehicle) to carry blood samples between two Norwegian hospitals over 120 kilometres apart, making it the country’s longest drone flight. Avant wants to revolutionize healthcare transportation by automating vital supplies and samples between hospitals, making medical care safer, more dependable, and affordable. The company hopes that by demonstrating how drones can transport blood samples, other organizations will be inspired to create similar groundbreaking solutions for drones. Such technology will ultimately be used daily. The Delta Quad Pro is a fixed-wing, fully-electric, vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) UAV that can be operated easily from a tablet or laptop. It can run fully autonomously and take off and land in almost any area with a very small footprint.
