The GEM Hawk is a fully functional UAV Helicopter with drone flight control and self-stabilization. GPS guidance, automatic RTL, and even Waypoint capability make this autonomous solution an easy and efficient survey method. Vertical Take Off & Launch (VTOL) makes this platform ideal for taking off in the bush, and flying just over top of trees and topography.
A helicopter UAV is simple compared to a conventional airplane, because the operator does not need to plan for often complicated take-off procedures and landing zones. It also has a minimum of moving parts. Not only does this make it more reliable and easy to maintain, but also more compact and light-weight. One other benefit of the compactness of the power train unit is that it results in very flexible payload and battery areas.
The GEM Hawk is our preferred UAV for the AirBIRD turnkey solution, and ships ready to fly with a rugged flight case.
The MONARCH Fixed Wing Gradiometer utilises (2) GSMP-35U/25U high sensitivity magnetometers to provide gradient survey capability. This system requires a short take off and landing area. It can fly at 70 km / hr for flights of 1 hr duration.
