    R22-UV unmanned helicopter joins UAVOS fleet for precision agriculture
    By: TheRobotReport.com

    Drones are essential to precision agriculture, in which water, fertilizer, and pesticides are applied by aerial drones. Not only can farmers target the amounts applied to crops and save costs, but they can also more closely monitor conditions. UAVOS Inc. yesterday announced the addition of the R22-UV unmanned helicopter to its fleet of aircraft for precision farming. The company converted a Robinson-22 helicopter into an unmanned vehicle.

    “Farmers today have a variety of complex factors that influence the success of their farms,” Aliaksei Stratsilatau, CEO of UAVOS, told The Robot Report. “From water access to changing climate, wind, soil quality, the presence of weeds and insects, variable growing seasons, and more. With spot spraying afforded by drones, this same task can be accomplished in less time, with fewer monetary resources, and a reduced environmental cost.”

    UAVOS Fits Unmanned R22 for Aerial Application
    By: AinOnline

    Unmanned aircraft company UAVOS today announced its Agro-drone R22-UV for day/night aerial applications. The unmanned Robinson R22 is equipped with the Simplex 222 spray system that includes a 26.4-gallon chemical tank and a 23-foot wide spray boom. It has a maximum endurance of two hours.

    UAVOS said the aircraft offers a faster, more precise, and more environmentally friendly method of application compared to ground application with a wheeled vehicle or on foot. UAVOS also noted that using a rotorcraft for such applications produces “downward rotation force” for more even and thorough pesticide droplet penetration of crops in all parts of the plant.

    HiDRON Sets New Records in Canadian Aviation
    By: Nation Shield

    UAVOS recently conducted a successful record-setting stratospheric flight, as part of a joint project between the company and Stratodynamics. The stratospheric glider named HiDRON was released from a Canadian Space Agency (CSA) scientific gondola at an altitude of 111,434 feet and performed a four-hour controlled flight and land- ed at Iroquois Falls Airport about 80 km from the Timmins, Ontario launch site. The flight once again confirmed Hi- DRON's capability to perform high-alti- tude missions and beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations and set a new operational best for the flight in a chal- lenging stratospheric environment. The night flight was also supported by the French Space Agency (CNES) and was part of the 2019 Strato-Science Bal- loon campaign

    UAVOS convert Pipistrel Sinus into an RPA
    By: sUAS News

    Aliaksei Stratsilatau, UAVOS Lead developer, is sharing UAVOS’s experience of the conversion of a manned aircraft the 2-seat Pipistrel Sinus

    Where did the idea to convert manned aircraft into UAS originate?

    From one of our customers, we received an order for the manufacture of heavy UAS. That customer needed unmanned vehicles of this type for commercial use. When we calculated the cost of developing and manufacturing a heavy UAS from a scratch, the cost of the flight hour was too high, much higher than the cost of the flying hour of a conventional manned aircraft. High production costs are the result of the small series. Then we offered our customer to expand the range of required commercial UAS by converting, and chose for this purpose Pipistrel Sinus.

    UAVOS Updates High Altitude Solar-Powered UAV Concept
    By: DroneBelow.com

    UAVOS Inc, a Mountain View-based company specialized in unmanned solutions, is introducing a new solution – a control system for aircrafts with a flexible wing for high-altitude unmanned aerial vehicles HAPS (High Altitude Pseudo Satellite). New flight control principles will allow to shift the geographic area of “solar” aircraft flights to more northern latitudes.

    HAPS will provide unique opportunities for using this solution in both civilian and defense areas, and for security tasks. UAVs powered by solar energy can serve for long continuous monitoring of the area of interest on the Earth’s surface to get real-time information. To meet the demands of telecommunication companies, HAPS can create a network of autonomous repeaters of radio and high speed data signals over practically any territory, including the Northern regions during the summer, where the use of regular aircrafts is highly problematic due to economic reasons, and weather conditions.

    Pipistrel Sinus Light Aircraft to be Converted to Optionally-Piloted System
    By: Unmanned Systems Technology

    UAVOS and JetLease have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to develop a new optionally manned fixed-wing aircraft, the Albatross-2.2. The aircraft has been designed for multispectral and radar monitoring of ground objects and marine areas for cargo transportation applications.

    The Albatross optionally-piloted vehicle will be based on the Sinus light aircraft manufactured by Pipistrel, which has sold more than 2,000 units of the two-seater aircraft. Sinus will be integrated with UAVOS’ automatic control system, and the wings will be modified to carry suspensions for payload and electrical circuitry will be rearranged. After the completion of the upgrades, UAVOS together with the aircraft manufacturer will conduct an analysis of the structural strength and finalize the operational documentation. Albatross will feature completely autonomous take-off, en-route flight and landing, and will provide payload capacity of 350 kg and range of 5,000 km.
