PD-2 Fixed-Wing & VTOL UAS
Modular UAV with three easily-swappable configurations
The PD-2 UAS is a versatile modular UAV platform that is designed to fit the needs of a wide variety of both civilian and military applications. Fully tested to withstand durability, shock, vibration, temperature and harsh weather, the system is currently on active service with the Ukrainian Armed Forces.The system features three possible configurations – VTOL (vertical take-off and landing), fixed-wing with landing gear, and fixed-wing without landing gear. Conversion between modes takes less than 15 minutes, with no tools required.
The PD-2’s engine module is based around a 4-stroke 100cc gasoline engine that runs on regular A95 fuel and consumables that are available world-wide. A 500W electric generator powers all equipment on board and charges batteries during flight. The engine can be remotely started with the push of a button, and integrated sensors provide real-time status information such as RPM, temperature and fuel level.
The UAV can be equipped with a wide range of payloads, including UKRSPECSYSTEMS EO/IR gimbals with digital video stabilization and target tracking, as well as third-party sensors such as LiDAR, synthetic aperture radar, and cell phone trackers. Communication options include RF line-of-sight (LoS) datalink, 3G/LTE, and SATCOM.
