Robot Aviation is a leading developer of fixed-wing and multirotor drones (UAVs, UAS) for military and commercial applications, as well as NATO STANAG-compliant C4ISR unmanned vehicle and sensor control software. With over 10 years of experience in the UAV industry, we have created solutions for a variety of range and endurance needs, all designed to operate under highly challenging conditions.
SkyRobot™ FX10 Fixed-Wing UAV
Hand-launched back-packable ISR drone
The SkyRobot FX10 is a backpack-portable hand-launched UAS with fully autonomous capabilities and designed for professional surveillance applications and military ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) missions.
Built around a composite airframe and incorporating a retractable gyro-stabilized EO/IR gimbal, the long-endurance aircraft is powered by an electric propulsion system, giving it a flight time of up to two hours.

SkyRobot™ FX450 Tactical Fixed-Wing UAV
Long-endurance BVLOS Class II fixed-wing drone
The SkyRobot FX450 is a versatile long-range fully autonomous UAS specially designed to deliver advanced BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) capabilities in demanding environments. With an advanced triple redundant flight control system, it is ideal for prolonged and persistent ISR drone missions.
The high-efficiency, low-emission engine runs on gasoline or heavy fuels and can provide flight endurance of 20 hours or more. An open architecture allows the aircraft to field customized payloads for unique requirements, including external sensor pods, geo-referenced EO/IR, radar, LiDAR, and multi/hyperspectral sensors.

SkyRobot UAS are ideal for fast-moving convoy protection, automatically staying ahead of personnel and vehicles or entering orbiting mode when the convoy stops. Video capture by the UAS can be streamed to vehicles or to base locations.
Our rugged unmanned aircraft are quick and easy to deploy even in austere environments, providing essential ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) capabilities.
Aerial Inspections & Monitoring
Robot Aviation is one of the few operators licensed to operate RO3-category drones in Norway, and our UAVs are used to perform BVLOS inspections of thousands of kilometres of power lines. Our FX10 has also been used by the UK’s Network Rail to inspect railway lines and create digital twins.
The endurance and range of our UAVs makes them ideal for a wide range of inspection and monitoring applications, such as oil & gas exploration and wind farm inspection, increasing operational efficiency and decreasing costs and time spent.
Security & Surveillance
All of our SkyRobot unmanned aerial systems can be set up for security and surveillance operations and missions, such as border patrol, national security and search & rescue.
The systems are ideal for providing persistent and reliable coverage, and can be configured with different payloads to match a variety of operational requirements.
