EOS Mini-UAS

EOS Fixed Wing Mini-UAV Drone

EOS is a hand-launched, parachute-recovered electric mini-UAS designed to capture stable, detailed imagery during tactical and commercial missions. Suitable for a wide variety of applications, including force protection, border security, first responder support and precision agriculture, the capabilities of the EOS have been proven during NATO ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) and KFOR (Kosovo Force) operations.

Handheld GCS for Threod Drones and sUAS

Handheld Ground Control Station (HGCS)

The EOS’ state-of-the-art aerodynamics guarantee a flight time of over 2 hours and silent operation at an altitude of 150m. A fully gyro-stabilized two-axis EO/IR camera gimbal provides onboard HD video and imagery recording, as well as streaming to a Ground Control Station, and an additional plug & play payload can be fitted for precision aerial mapping.

The EOS is equipped with an advanced autopilot which enables automatic takeoff and landing, automatic navigation between user-defined waypoints, and a variety of loiter modes and scan patterns. An AES-256-encrypted data link provides a line-of-sight range of over 20km.

Stream C Tactical UAS

Stream C Fixed Wing Tactical UAS

Currently under development, the Stream C tactical UAS is a Class 1 Fixed Wing UAS with a 30kg maximum takeoff weight (MTOW). Designed for endurance flights (up to 6 hours), the Stream C will feature a cooled MWIR gimbal payload making ideal for aerial mapping and ISR surveillance applications.

Currently the drone platform is launched via catapult and recovered using the integrated parachute recovery system, although a wheeled undercarriage is being developed to enable conventional takeoff and landing.

Specifications:

Dimensions 3.9m wingspan, 2.3m length
Lift capacity 6kg
Endurance over 6 hours
Operational ceiling up to 3000m AGL
Speeds
80-130 km/h

KX4-LE Titan VTOL/Multirotor UAV

KX4-LE VTOL Drone PlatformThe KX-4 LE is a long endurance, heavy-lift multirotor drone designed for ISR, search and rescue (SAR) and law enforcement missions. The multiple plug & play payload options provide enhanced situational awareness for rescue services and first responders.

Featuring VTOL functionality, the KX-4 LE UAS can be deployed quickly without the need for a runway or launch equipment; and the integral emergency parachute offers additional safety, especially when being operated in populated areas. The detachable boom arms and landing gear ensure the system can be easily packed away and transported.

The KX-4 LE UAS can be operated in fully autonomous or first-person view flight modes using a handheld or fixed Ground Control Station (GCS).

Specifications:

Dimensions 78×78 cm (138×138 cm with propellers)
Payload Capacity 6.1kg
Endurance 70 min without payload; 45 minutes with 2.5kg payload
Operational Ceiling Optimal: 100-200m AGL / Maximum: 500m AGL
Airspeed
8 – 14 m/s

Shark Gimbal – Stabilized Dual-Camera UAV Gimbal

Dual Stalibilsed Drone GimbalDual EO-IR UAV Gimbal

Our roll-tilt gyro-stabilized dual-camera UAV gimbal, suitable for both fixed-wing and multirotor aircraft, provides both electro-optic and infrared capabilities, streaming clear and stabilized live geo-referenced video back to base.  Advanced features include target tracking, geo-locking and moving object detection.

The dual-side design, with sensors on both sides of the stabilizing mechanism, allows the overall height of the gimbal to be extremely low, and the modular sensor mounts allow for quick, easy upgrades and payload changes. The gimbal can also be equipped with an optional IR illuminator and laser rangefinder for further functionality.

The Shark Stabilized Dual-Camera UAV Gimbal is available in a number of different configurations.
