AUVSI 2017: Saxon's magic number three (video)

10th May 2017 - 22:30 GMT | by Beth Maundrill in Dallas


Saxon Remote Systems has taken the opportunity of Xponential to unveil not one, but three new unmanned systems. The three UAVs include the small Xential, larger M12 Monitor and a redesigned version of its Viper M10 aircraft.

CEO of the company, John Ferguson, told Shephard that not only are the three systems fully modular but they also have wings that can be adjusted to accommodate varying centres of gravity.

The Xential can be used for mapping and agricultural activities, is built from carbon fibre reinforced foam and has a wingspan of almost two metres. The M12 Monitor has a mission duration with a sensor payload and the Viper M10 has been modified to be lighter and more efficient, according to the company.
