UAVOS proudly informs about the completion of work on upgrading its unmanned helicopter UVH EL with the advanced airframe. UVH EL is an electric powered UAV, equipped with a gimbal for day or night surveillance and has increased performance with carrying capacity, flying range, and extended temperature range. The UAV is powered by UAVOS's autopilot. Take-off and landing as well as missions are carried out automatically. The upgraded UVH EL will be showcased at DSEI 2019, in London.
Features of the upgraded UVH-EL include:
- The spatial frame of the helicopter makes it possible to conveniently place the payload and easily adjust the center of mass of the aircraft.
- The new design of the aircraft has high rigidity and low weight.
- The helicopter encases in a compact package that can be easily transported in a passenger car.
- The rechargeable battery module is located inside the helicopter’s bearing frame, which protects it from damage.
- The open fuselage structure in the area of servo actuators allows convenient control of the main mechanical elements of the helicopter, electrical wiring and other main components.
- The chassis has been designed to fit the LiDAR installation.
- The helicopter is equipped with a radio altimeter.
- The emergency rescue system (parachute) has been improved.
- The mainframe is made of standard carbon pipes with a diameter of 30 mm. This allowed to reduce the cost of helicopter production by 20 percent, making its price more attractive for customers.
- The compact and lightweight UVH EL – offering extended endurance and range – can fly for 1.4 hours with the range of up to 67 km. The system carries a multi-sensor camera with day-or-night channels. With estimated operating payload of 5 kg, the UVH EL targets both commercial and security applications.
“The common challenge we see in the market is the need for an easy-to-use, cost-effective solution that produces actionable insights. Our latest model drone platform has been developed to address those requirements and break new ground in terms of what can be done with a drone, as well as who can operate it” - said
Aliaksei Stratsilatau, UAVOS Chairman of the board and Lead developer.
