Compact Coaxial Drone Design
Modular backpack drone with multiple payloads
The Spirit UAS features a proven coaxial design with a compact cylindrical airframe that can be easily carried in a backpack and quickly assembled and disassembled in the field.
With the ability to carry multiple payloads on the same mission, Spirit can be used as a replacement for multiple unmanned aircraft that need to be operated separately. With unmatched portability and an extremely low operational footprint, the lightweight modular drone can take off from and land on any type of terrain.
High-performance operation in challenging environments
The rugged, highly dependable coaxial drone delivers reliable operation even in the most challenging of situations, with the ability to withstand heavy wind and rain, snow, sleet and sand.
Versatile modular payloads for multi-mission capabilities
The Spirit’s modular drone design has been engineered to support a growing ecosystem of current and future payloads, with two identical attach points on the top and bottom of the drone that allow easy plug-and-play connection. This versatile system allows you to bring what you need, when and where you need it, with no tradeoffs.
Payloads, power sources and launch methods all connect and disconnect with a simple twist, allowing you to create a multitude of different configurations and equip Spirit for missions that would not be possible with conventional drone airframes. Power and data are distributed to the top and bottom of the drone’s core, with connectivity including Pixhawk, high-speed Ethernet, and HDMI.
Payload options include:
- A wide range of advanced RGB, thermal and EO/IR sensors
- Airframe enhancements for tethered operations, high speed, extended range flight and more
- Ultra-high density lithium-ion batteries
- Landing gear modules with pass-through capabilities
Downselected for BlueUAS 2.0
- NDAA and EO 13981 compliant
- Multiple camera and GCS options
Spirit is ideal for professional inspection, mapping and monitoring applications in tough weather conditions and environments otherwise too difficult, dangerous of expensive to tackle. The versatile all-weather drone can also be used to quickly transport critical supplies to almost any location.
