Volatus Aerospace Corp. has signed a sales agency agreement with Xer Technologies to offer X8 heavy-duty hybrid electric engine drones in North America.

The Xer X8 UAS is designed to take on demanding industry applications such as right of way and asset inspections, search and rescue, wildfire and LiDAR and photogrammetry mapping and can fly for 2.5-hours with a 3 kg payload in adverse weather conditions.

Speaking of the agreement, Rob Walker, COO of Volatus Aerospace said; “With the demand for longer missions from our oil and gas, energy utilities, and rail clients, the requirement of a drone with this type of endurance under regulation weight is essential. With 2.5 hours of flight time, this not only enables us to fly farther and longer with heavier payloads, but it makes the case more compelling for remote operations.

We were drawn to Volatus’ track record at helping OEMs bring their products to new markets both as service provider and as distributor,” said Gökmen Çetin, International Sales Manager of Xer Technologies, “Their knowledge and industry penetration will put the Xer X8 directly in front of the relevant customers. We are excited about what we will accomplish together.

Dean Attridge, VP of Solutions Engineering explained “There is a separation that needs to be filled between the smaller, enterprise level UAS drones used for today’s visual line of sight operations and the larger, complex operations, which require greater endurance and additional payload capacity.

Xer X8 UAS addresses that need by providing a high-endurance heavy-duty solution that bridges that gap between traditional aviation and remotely piloted aircraft.

Volatus will be conducting demos beginning late July and showcasing the Xer X8 UAS at APSCON in Houston July 31st to August 2nd.
