UAVOS and ISR Unmanned Technologies launch new VTOL UAV
UAVOS and ISR Unmanned Technologies have jointly developed a new unmanned helicopter for commercial and security applications.
The ISR-350-5 is the result of the joint project, which will be manufactured and assembled in the UK.
Based on the light, single-engine, gasoline-powered UVH-170 unmanned helicopter developed by UAVOS, the new VTOL aircraft introduces improvements to all its systems, including the mechanics, electronics and available payloads.
The UAV has a fuel consumption of 2 litres per hour, and it is expected that it will be able to remain airborne for up to 6h carrying a 5kg payload, which is intended for survey instruments and radar.
The electronics are IP67 rated, allowing the helicopter to operate in harsh environments including tropical climates, and the ISR-350-5 is powered by UAVOS’ autopilot that makes it possible to synchronise the work of a payload and of the onboard telemetry, as well as the flight task for most aerial applications.
A high level of self-diagnosis of all the vehicle’s components, meanwhile, allows it to fly safely, increasing the survivability of the UAV.
UAVOS has also worked on payload integration and offers different options covering all types of applications for multiple sectors, including inspection, agriculture and mining, offering surveillance, mapping, LIDAR and GIS.
Payloads include: gimbals with cameras with day and night vision and up to 30x optical zoom, and high resolution and infrared sensors.
‘The ISR-350-5 joins our existing family of unmanned helicopters used for commercial and security missions,’ Aliaksei Stratsilatau, UAVOS’ chairman of the board and lead developer, said.
‘The partnership with ISR Unmanned Technologies creates the opportunity for both companies to explore expanding into new markets and developing new capabilities to meet future customer needs.’
