This UAV is manufacturer in fiver, having an innovative design that combines high speed airplane flight performance with vertical take-off and landing capabilities. It permits to quickly access any area in the region in record times, performing missions in which each second counts.
Systems are 24h operative and ready to fly, once the signal is received from the control center, UAVs automatically take-off; flying as a multirotor, once in the air, these systems switch to airplane flight mode by rotating wings. These aircrafts have been designed in order to perform high speed flights so it can reach target destination in a couple of minutes, inside its coverage area, transitioning back to multirotor mode for landing.
The complete system is under certification process in a close collaboration with FOCA (Federal Office of Civil Aviation) in Switzerland. Veronte Autopilot compliance with DO178 / ED12 and DO254 makes the difference for this certification process, requiring the system from 24h availability.
Redundancy has been installed within the system, not only by using a dual redundant Veronte Autopilot but also installing redundant subsystems, such as servos. Radar based sense and avoid system is also about to be installed on the system for increased safety.
Defidrone project is managed by Cardio Centro Ticino, being Embention responsible for the Veronte Autopilot integration and provisioning.
