Nano Hyperespectral sensor now supported for Aeromapper 300

Aeromao Inc, has delivered an Aeromapper 300 customized and ready for the Nano-Hyperespectral camera from Headwell Photonics to the University of Brasilia, in Brazil.

Since the initial approval was granted the custom integration was performed in a record time of only a few weeks.

When it comes to find a UA­­­V dependable enough to trust such an expensive sensor, the Aeromappers are the obvious choice thanks to its affordability, dependability, ease of use,…

Aeromapper Talon demonstrates BVLOS capabilities by flying 30Km away from operators

This time an Aeromapper Talon flew a mission autonomously to a target located 30km away from the operators, while maintaining at all times a strong communications and control link. This demonstrates the great potential for Beyond Visual Line of Sight operations for applications such as power…

Airspeed, angle of attack, sideslip and flight path vector estimated in real time on APM!

We have been working for some time on a way to estimate and display important flight parameters such as angle of attack, estimated airspeed (on UAVs that do not have Pitot tubes), side slip angle or flight path vector (FPV) using a simple, robust dynamical model of the UAV and a computational method that is both fast and has computational time guarantees.…
