The Songbird is the result of years of testing and optimisation. Combining the advantages of traditional aircrafts with those of multi-rotor drones, this new type of UAS greatly expands your operational abilities. Due to its vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capability, no runway for take-off or landing is necessary while keeping all the benefits of a fixed wing aircraft.
Advanced aerodynamical 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 area coverage is up to 25km² (10sq mi).
Our sophisticated autopilot with automatic take-off and landing features enables the UAS to be flown by a single pilot/operator, no prior flight experience is required. This, together with the long flight time and quick and tool-less assembly ensures a high return on your investment.
The Songbird allows for a payload of up to 2 kg, enabling operation with large battery packs, dual cameras or highly specialised sensors, such as LIDAR or real-time mapping solutions. The maximum take-off weight (MTOW) always remains below 10 kg.
The Songbird has been designed by engineers with years of field experience and with knowledge about what your equipment must endure in the real world. It benefits from testing under extreme weather conditions, from the African desert to tropical jungles. The Songbird can operate during wind speeds of up to 19 m/s as well extreme heat or cold and light rain.
After a brief training by our staff, anyone will be able to use the Songbird safely, reliably and efficiently. We can also help you to find the right sensors and technical solutions for your specific use-case.
