The company, which specializes in the development and production of modern UAVs, will showcase how to enhance the effectiveness of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance missions with its Vector and Scorpion 2-in-1 System.

“Learn how we are disrupting existing professional commercial and governmental UAS markets, enabling automatic flights that ensure uncompromised image capture or HD live stream, and maximum efficiency to gather actionable intelligence,” it said in a statement.

The next generation of unmanned aerial vehicles is a 2-in-1 VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) system. The 2in1 System design opens up further applications with the “Scorpion” configuration – By removing the wings and attaching a separate set of copter arms a dedicated multi copter platform becomes available for an even wider variety of mission applications.

The Vector is a fixed-wing, vertical take-off reconnaissance drone system with the ability to operate in the most difficult terrain combined with extremely low noise emission (motor off silent mode).

An encrypted mesh IP link of the drone system can send video streams up to a range of 15+ km and it is has a flight time of up to 120 minutes. All combined in a compact and robust electric VTOL UAV.

The Vector combines the performance advantages of a fixed-wing aircraft with the vertical take-off capability of a helicopter. In just a few simple steps, you can switch to the Scorpion configuration and use the benefits of a sophisticated tri-copter setup thanks to the 2in1 system.

This allows a fast and highly flexible response to different challenges of changing deployment scenarios. Due to their design, Vector and Scorpion are ideal for tactical reconnaissance and surveillance missions even in demanding weather conditions.
Both systems share the following specifications:

- 15+ km command & control range
- Electric Vertical Take-off and Landing (eVTOL)
- EO/IR HD Gimbal option
- Made for harsh environmental conditions (-20 up to 45+°C)
- Heated batteries for operation in cold temperatures
- AES 256-bit encrypted data and mission link
- Small footprint (operation by one person)
- Glass fiber and Kevlar honeycomb sandwich airframe

As to the Scorpion, this is a tri-copter drone system. Like the Vector it is also optimized for use in adverse conditions with extreme temperatures.

It is not only the optics that the Scorpion has in common with its animal fellow. Like the Vector it is also optimized for use in adverse conditions with extreme temperatures. The centerpiece is identical to the fixed-wing Vector UAV housing gimbal, autopilot and data link. The larger propellers and motors of the Scorpion make it a state-of-the-art tri-copter with live video data link for various mission scenarios.

The Scorpion impresses with an HD data link of up to 15+ km range. As a tri-copter it is ideal for smaller-scale and stationary use, for example in densely built-up areas. With a flight time of up to 45 minutes, it can cover a wide range of applications.

Coming with the built in 2in1 ability to always convert back to the Vector UAV the Scorpion’s core features are:

- Tri-Copter UAV
- 0-15 m/s flight speed
- Up to 45 min flight time
