AEE Aviation Technology Mach 4 drone

AEE Aviation Technology has announced the introduction of the Mach 4, a multiple-payload capable commercial UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) designed for professionals in fields such as law enforcement, search & rescue, inspection and surveying. AEE will be exhibiting Mach 4 at the AUVSI Xponential conference in Denver.

Measuring a little over two-feet in length, the AEE’s Mach 4 is capable of traveling at a cruising speed of close to 30 miles per hour with a range of almost two miles and flight times up to 40 minutes in length. Its Y-12 ground station hand controller is equipped with 1.4 gigahertz for flight control, offering a steady and sure control experience. The drone package comes with an aluminum siding carrying case that includes a professional charger and battery pack along with three antennas which are attached to the ground station, which supports a 5.8GHz video transmission and a 1.4 GHz digital radio system. Equipped with an YT35, standard 4K camera with a 1 / 2.3-megapixel sensor, the Mach 4 is designed to deliver crisp, clear images. The Mach 4 will also have available 10:1 zoom camera payload as well as an advanced optical thermal payload for search & rescue along with inspection missions.

“We are pleased to offer to the Mach 4 to our commercial customers around the world because we expect the Mach 4 to raise the bar and redefine value in the commercial UAV industry,” said AEE founder and CEO Andy Zheng. “One key advantage, for example, of the Mach 4 is its long flight time and we also believe its ground station controller is in a class by itself for similar products at this price point.”
