C-Astral launches Bramor mSX UAS

2nd April 2019 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


C-Astral Aerospace has launched a new remote sensing UAS equipped with Micasense’s Altum sensor, the company announced on 26 March.

The new long endurance BVLOS-enabled fixed wing Bramor Msx UAS has an endurance of three hours, an operational ceiling of 5000m above ground level and is capable of operating in winds of up to 60km/h. It can be used to gather data in the combined radiometric multispectral, visible and thermal remote sensing space for precision agriculture, advanced research remote sensing and surveying, filling the gap between satellite data acquisition and short endurance platforms that can cover very small areas.

The all electric mSX is capable of covering approximately 3000 acres in one flight, with a multispectral ground sample distance (GSD) of two inches that enables precise, plant level based localisation and monitoring, enhancing ecological and agricultural analytics.

The system is comprised of an air and ground segment, consisting of the fully integrated Altum sensor, combined with an advanced GNSS on board receiver and ground base station; the BRAMOR mSX blended wing airframe and other optional sensors (the Altum is exchangeable with a 24MP or 42MP RGB ultra high GSD cameras), a portable and ergonomic rugged ground control station and catapult launcher.
