PX-31 [UAS]

 

 

UAS SYSTEM.

The PX-31 UAS is a multipurpose unmanned aircraft system with the ability to carry a diverse suite of sensors and payloads serving user needs.

Usually, operators in need of an UAS for testing multiple types of sensors or payloads are required to design, construct and set up the complete aircraft system themselves. With the PX-31, we deliver a turn key solution with a flight ready aircraft. The payload can be mounted to a standardized payload frame on an interchangeable plate, enabling the user to have several payloads instead of tying an aircraft to a single payload.

 

 

We focus on performance.

Each PX-31 is test flown and adjusted to minimize variations between aircraft. Manufacturer airframe or engine deviations are compensated so that system stability and robustness are well suited for ship based and maritime missions.

The PX-31 platform is equipped with high speed communications for VLOS. For EVLOS and BLOS missions, long range VHF radio, C-band and GPRS systems provides redundant communication, while Iridium Satellite communications are used for areas where no other system provides coverage

We focus on quality.

We know the future is unmanned, and that effective and quality products improve our future

PHOTOGRAMMETRY

Photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs, especially for recovering the exact positions of surface points. Moreover, it may be used to recover the motion pathways of designated reference points located on any moving object, on its components and in the immediately adjacent environment. Photogrammetry may employ high-speed imaging and remote sensing in order to detect, measure and record complex 2-D and 3-D motion fields (see also sonar, radar, lidar, etc.). Photogrammetry feeds the measurements from remote sensing and the results of imagery analysis into computational models in an attempt to successively estimate, with increasing accuracy, the actual, 3-D relative motions within the researched field.

 

PROVEN UNDER DUAL RPAS OPERATION

The UAS has been proven as a solid platform for dual UAS operation. Flying multiple UAS simultaneously enables effi cient operations collecting more data in a shorter time, or utilizing the benefi ts of payloads positioned in different locations at the same time.

LONG RANGE VHF

The long range VHF radio enables long range communications with PX-31. For all VLOS, EVLOS and a large part of BLOS missions this link provides suffi cient communications for reliable operation. A robust FEC protocol and TDMA channel access allows effi cient channel utilization and a long range telemetry and command link.

AEROMAGNETIC SURVEYING

Mapping the earths magnetic fields using Unmanned Aircraft Systems. An aeromagnetic survey is a common type of geophysical survey carried out using a magnetometer aboard an aircraft. The onboard magnetometer measures the magnetic strength at a point in space. The onboard magnetometer measures the magnetic strength at a point in space. The principle is similar to a magnetic survey carried out with a hand-held magnetometer, but allows much larger areas of the Earth's surface to be covered quickly for regional reconnaissance. The aircraft typically flies in a grid-like pattern with height and line spacing determining the resolution of the data (and cost of the survey per unit area).

STANDARDIZED CONNECTION AND SETUP

Our own developed interface/service module distributes power and communication to all communication links, as well as to connected payloads. On/off control of payloads can also be provided even for payloads with internal own power supply. Air safety is ensured in case of component failure by fused outputs.

AIR SAFETY

Transponder integration: ADS-B transponder, enabling all ADS-B equipped aircraft, as well as all ATC units with radar or ADS-B to know theposition, speed and heading of the RPAS using their existing systems. Use of airplane approved components whenever available increases reliability and fault tolerance of the PenguinMR. All components have faced intensive testing, both individually and together as a complete platform.
