The JX2 NG Aerial Target has integrated the Veronte Autopilot, which provides the UAV with fully autonomous flight capabilities, versatility and sensor redundancy. The versatility given by the autopilot allows the Aerial Target to adapt its configuration to the requirements of different types of operations. Veronte Autopilot becomes the best option to program target drones, mainly due to its quality-prices relation, but also due to its ease of installation in drones with either combustion or turbine engines.
