Designed to be a multi-versatile, lightweight, rugged and low acoustic footprint UAS.
The SRV was designed to offer rapid deployment, superior flight stability, high wind tolerance, and short launch/recovery areas. Our rugged design has been proven in theater with successful Intelligence and Reconnaissance missions. The SRV is the perfect platform for larger survey projects as well as low-altitude information-gathering missions both onshore and offshore in the maritime environment. The SRV can be outfitted with mapping cameras, EO/IR Target Tracking Gimbals and Silvus or Microhard Radios for C2 and Datalink.
Short Field landing
A key component to effectively using a UAV system for your large scale survey or ISR projects is the ability to land the aircraft in tight spaces. The SRV is designed to land in a 25-meter area and come in at a very steep landing angle. allowing the aircraft to land in small spaces surrounded by trees or offshore vessels. This has never been seen by fixed-wing aircraft until now. The SRV has the long-range advantage of fixed-wing aircraft without sacrificing the weight and budget penalties of VTOL aircraft.
Launch By Hand
The SRV flies a series of payloads to include the Sony A7R ii 42mp camera which provides a significant advantage both in-ground sample distance (pixel size), and area coverage. The camera is placed at a slight forward oblique angle which provides higher quality data on hills and around vegetation. The lens is fitted to provide the same oblique angle in the front as the sides, which eliminated the need for a cross grid pattern.
The SRV training is a 3-day course which can be conducted on-site, or at our facility in Kansas. The training has 1 day in the classroom, and 2 days in the field. The course will cover the safety features, general mission planning, flight ops, and standard operating procedures for collecting and processing accurate data.
