IntelinAir, an aerial data technology firm, has announced the launch of its new line of unmanned aerial system (UAS) products, powered by its patented robust adaptive flight control technology delivering precision data collection and advanced data-analysis for actionable intelligence.
At the core of this new UAS technology is the company’s flagship SafeSmart™ Robust Adaptive Flight Control, a patented technology exclusively licensed from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. IntelinAir’s SafeSmart™ advanced mathematical algorithms deliver predictable autonomous flight regardless of unforeseen disturbances such as high wind, precipitation and inclement weather. The flight control technology underlying SafeSmart has been rigorously tested in military and commercial applications for over 10 years. Organizations such as NASA, the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Navy have validated this technology to maintain control even in severe conditions such as stall and post-stall. After millions of dollars of testing and validation, IntelinAir is now applying this technology to mission-critical commercial applications.
IntelinAir’s comprehensive and turnkey product suite for the academic research community is comprised of the following products:
- SafeSmart RD-100 Hexarotor UAV for flight control and navigation research
- SafeSmart RD-200 Hexarotor UAV for aerial remote sensing and data gathering applications
- SafeSmart Autopilot AP-100 for smooth and responsive UAV operation and precision navigation
- SafeSmart Electronic Speed Controller ESC-100 for energy-efficient and smooth motor response
- SafeSmart Ground Control Software
- IntelinAir MATLAB/SIMULINK Software Development Toolbox for transparent modular software design and development
“IntelinAir’s goal is to bring actionable intelligence from aerial data for quick decision-making in mission-critical commercial applications. Initially we are making our advanced products available to the academic community so that their research can benefit from our precision flight and analysis technology,” said Alfred Eisaian, CEO of IntelinAir, “Beyond academia, we’re developing solutions for precision agriculture, forestry, and insurance. With our SafeSmart suite of products and technologies, we’re able to deliver the predictable performance necessary for today’s rigorous commercial applications.”
“IntelinAir has delivered a complete solution for the university researcher. The Software Development Toolbox allows researchers to work in familiar MATLAB/Simulink tools and take advantage of auto-coding to develop and implement new flight and navigation algorithms in a fraction of the time as compared to more traditional approaches. And SafeSmart flight control ensures that no tuning is necessary to use different sensors or cameras,” says Isaac Kaminer, Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Naval Postgraduate School, “The IntelinAir offering is great for improving research productivity and innovation.”
