Reliable autonomous operation in challenging environments

The AURA-100 UAV’s VTOL configuration allows the aircraft to be launched quickly and easily with a minimal footprint, with no need for helipads or runways. It can be operated even in rain or snow, and can take off or land during wind speeds of up to 25 m/s.

The platform features automated takeoff and landing capabilities that can be enhanced with optional advanced machine vision technologies.

The AURA-100 can be operated in one of three modes:

Automatic operating mode – define fixed waypoints and command the UAV to automatically follow its predefined flight path, with set tasks such as cargo delivery at specific points

Managed mode – the UAV pilot can control aircraft movement during the mission to targeted waypoints, via a ground control station with mouse and keyboard

Semi-automatic control mode – used in flight test programs and for specific mission requirements, this mode allows the UAV to be controlled by a pilot via remote radio control.

AURA UAV benefits

Advanced flight safety and communications features

The AURA-100 is equipped with a variety of features to ensure the utmost safety and reliability during all operations. Obstacle detection and crash avoidance is provided by a combination of LiDAR sensor and barometric pressure altimeter to ensure safe minimum altitude, as well as precise GNSS positioning.

AURA UAV ground controlIn the unlikely event of engine failure, the UAV will retain control and conduct an emergency landing in a safe zone, utilising the autorotation mode of the main propeller.

If the UAV loses connection with the GCS, it can be preprogrammed to either continue the mission or return to the take-off point.

The AURA-100 can be optionally equipped with cellular or satellite modems, providing long-range command and control and enabling BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) applications.
