AeroVironment unveils Quantix Recon

24th April 2020 - 18:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


AeroVironment on 23 April launched a military variant of its Quantix crop-surveying UAV.

Quantix Recon is a fully-automated hybrid VTOL UAS, designed to deliver high-resolution georeferenced aerial imagery on demand for mission planners on their tablets.

Its RF silent mode enables Quantix Recon to conduct missions undetected, AeroVironment stated.

Quantix Recon surveys up to 1.6 km2 or 20km on a linear flight path per 45-minute single battery flight. Multiple automated reconnaissance mode options allow users to choose between line, area and waypoint targeted data capture.

The UAV operates a five optional altitudes from 150-800ft. Collected aerial imagery data is compatible with a wide range of available geographic information system (GIS) tools to facilitate further analysis.

Rick Pedigo, VP of sales and business development for AeroVironment, said: ‘Because it does not rely on radio signals during flight, Quantix Recon offers greater stealth for concealed operations and is unaffected by radio frequency jammers, providing greater protection for frontline troops while reducing cognitive load.’
