Key operational features
Necessary for humid maritime environments while also making the drone able to operate throughout the seasons.
Combining different power sources extends the flight time beyond 3 hours, allowing longer operations.
Allows the drone to operate in rough maritime environments and does increase the payload capacity.
Key safety features
With the use of sensors and artificial intelligence, the safety of surrounding objects is maintained.
In the case of critical scenarios, the drone aborts its missions and lands on the water surface. The drone stays afloat until it is retrieved.
Having the drone communicate with existing vessels, flatforms and aircrafts is important for autonomous navigation.
Key application features
Interchangeable payload bays
Gives flexibility to configure the sensor packs in order to tailor it to specific applications.
An additional onboard computer can be used to process retrieved data before it is transmitted. This increases capability of long-range operations.
A long-range and/or a short-range radio communication system can be used to monitor sensor data directly at ground control.
