Game of Drones: Introducing SwissDrones
SwissDrones Operating AG is a young high-tech company based in Buchs, Switzerland, which specializes in the development and production of unmanned helicopters (UAVs) for civil purpose.
The drone is made of carbon fiber, with control and flight systems provided by Airbus, has a intermeshing rotor system with two sets of blades that overlap which eliminates the need for a tail rotor.
Ready to fly in 15 minutes and only a 2-person crew is needed, the key differences are payload capacity (+ 45kg), endurance fly (> 2 hour), stable flight patterns and high degree safety features. Due to the dimensions the drone needs to be transported in an SUV or equivalent, but it is simple and easy to deploy. Developed for Mapping & Surveying, the dron can improve data collection accuracy and efficiency. Its design optimizes workflow productivity and save hours of work on every project. Offer a wide range of solutions for surveillance and inspection missions, from law enforcement to humanitarian operations, for Transport used in a wide spectrum of transport and logistics activities, from e-commerce package delivery to transport of medicines.
SwissDrones is offering the tailor-made customization and adaptation of its existing products and technologies to client needs.
The users to the systems is BSG (Basarnas Special Group) from Indonesia, a rescue unit from de Indonesian Government and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) is the national aeronautics and space research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany and the researchers of this centerhave successfully integrated an industrial robotic gripper arm with seven degrees of freedom into an autonomous helicopter system as part of the European Union 'Aerial Robotics Cooperative Assembly System' (ARCAS) project. This makes it possible to inspect and service robots on the pipelines without risk. And the dron of the SwissDrones is part of this project.
