VTOL Fixed Wing UAS
The Songbird UAS combines the efficiency, speed and long range of traditional aircraft with the Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) ability of modern multi-rotor drones. It allows for a payload of up to 4,4 kg, enabling operation with large battery packs, dual cameras or highly specialized sensors. The Maximum Take-Oﬀ Weight (MTOW) always remains below 15 kg.
The Songbird benefits from testing under extreme weather conditions, from the African desert to tropical jungles, and can operate during wind speeds of up to 15 m/s as well extreme heat or cold and light rain.
Advanced aero-dynamical design and uncompromising lightweight construction result in flight times of up to two hours, which is twice the time of comparable systems. Depending on the payload, the range coverage is up to 100 km. A sophisticated autopilot with automatic take-oﬀ and landing features enables the UAS to be flown by a single pilot/operator.
