Plymouth Rock Technologies Inc. (Plyrotech) has received an order for fixed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) which will be used for Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS) operations for long range natural resource monitoring.

The UAVs are based on the company’s XV-L platform, with several client-specified modifications. They will be large, all-environment UAVs, designed to be deployed for land and maritime operations at BVLOS distances, capable of operating for up to 7 hours.

Unlimited global communications capability will be built-in via the latest Satellite Communication (SATCOM) technologies, alongside enhanced military-grade Coded Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing communications technologies for secure, high-quality data feeds for sub 60-mile communication scenarios. 

Capable of landing in a relatively small area on land or on a vessel, the fixed-wing Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) UAVs will empower operators with increased flight time and a high level of imaging and sensor payload capability – offering a flexibility and cost saving far beyond conventional capabilities. 

“At this stage, we are bound by non-disclosure covenants on the exact details of this contract,” stated Carl Cagliarini, Chief Strategy Officer of Plyrotech. “These aircraft will each carry several hundred thousand dollars’ worth of avionics and sensors, which will also include the latest SATCOM technologies, as well as high-grade transponder and anti-collision capabilities. January 2022 closed as our best month in terms of revenues and orders to-date.”

Initial deliveries are anticipated to take place by April 2022.
