Multiple payload capabilities

Loading…

WaveSight can carry top performance payload suitable for different application:

Automatic flight capabilities

  • Fully automatic pre-programmed flight over 3D paths with adjustable height from 0 to 3500 ( 1m accuracy) – In flight mission re-task
  • 16 user configurable flight pattern to execute particular actions during flight that may be automatically triggered by the autopilot, or manually triggered by the operator
  • Full on board data log recording of 42 predefined data including: speed, altitude, attitude, GPS position, command being executed, and 16 user configurable data
  • Failure management that triggers specific recovery actions for each failure.

Pneumatic catapult takeoff

Loading…

Pneumatic operation ensures durability and constant performance not possible with rubber bands or other similar devices.

Automatic operated catapult for reliable and repetitive takeoffs.

Electronic catapult management for safe operation:

  • Launch is enabled only when the launching pressure reaches the proper values
  • Launch is triggered by a safety, two buttons, anti-panic hand-held control.
  • Pre-launch warning buzzer

Transport and packing capabilities

Wavesight UAV has been designed to optimize operation in non-prepared field. Once packed the whole system can be carried in a normal car. A single man can operate the system; optimized operations require two men crew.

Performances

(Performances refers to standard ISA atmosphere condition: pressure 1013.25 hPa, temperature 15°C, humidity 0%)

  • Cruising speed (typ.): 20 m/s – 40 kts
  • Rate of climb: 3.5 m/s – 650 ft/min
  • Max. operating altitude above sea level: 3500 m
  • Max wind for take off and landing: 38Km/h – 20 kts
  • Operating temperature range: -20°C / + 50°C
  • Storage temperature range: -20°C / + 50°C
  • Duration max.: 150 mins

Duration is influenced by flight profile, weather conditions wind, battery state of charge and efficiency. Standard duration is measured with standard flight, automatic take off, climb to 100 m, leveled flight, descend and landing
