Field Research Elevated
The Swift021 reliably gets payloads into the air to collect real-time data in a variety of terrains or ocean environments. The vehicle is economically developed specifically for scientific research. Able to fly regularly selected routes for better, more consistent data at a fraction of the cost.
Quick to learn, easy to maintain and manage, allowing for the first expedition in minutes. Provides an easy-to-use, fully autonomous platform with interchangeable payloads that can provide real-time sensor data. With simple snap-on integration, research payloads can easily be swapped or calibrated in laboratory environments.
Effective sensing, surveillance and monitoring of data can localize and highlight possible real-time changes requiring immediate action or additional study. All electric 2-hour flight endurance and rapid hot-swap batteries offer more continuous and cost-effective research capabilities. Synchronize and tag-team two Swift021.s’s for collecting continuous, uninterrupted research data.
All-electric propulsion also eliminates engine emissions and provides for clean air sampling, listening, or sound recording. Capable of launch and landing almost anywhere, in almost any weather, on almost any terrain – even the tightest of places – for exploring locations and environments no humans can go.
The Autonomous VTOL Science Solution
The Swift021 is designed specifically with a compact footprint to alleviate large launch and recovery structures, logistics and operational costs.
The Swift021’s scientific payload options are also specifically designed to improve research with an array of full- sensory payloads offering a wide range of options and uses, including:
Scientific Research Use Cases
- The Swift021 eliminates damage to valuable payloads due to shock or deceleration from parachute, net capture, wire capture, and belly-landing UAVs.
- Hot swappable payload bay for rapid deployment and multiple assets
- Low noise signature to increase observations and stay in compliance with the Marine Mammal Protection Act
- Landings in small areas/vessels is accomplished using machine vision for centimeter level accuracy.
