One of Europe’s leading professional drone providers has revealed its latest offering capable of five-hour flight times.
Latvia-based Atlas Dynamic unveiled its new fixed wing UAV, the Atlas Blue-J, at InterDrone 2017.
The fixed wing UAV was designed based on future homeland security needs, suitable for high speed, high altitude missions, with long target duration capabilities and a low radar footprint.
The Blue-J has a 3.5-meter wing span, four to six hours of flight time and a 150-kilometer operational range.
Made fully of carbon fiber, the Atlas Blue-J is lightweight, weighing only 11kg, and can carry up to a nine-km load.
“The efficiency of our drones speaks directly to our company’s DNA: technological excellence and a passion to simplify complex aerospace technologies for mass adoption,” said Ivan Tolchinsky, CEO of Atlas Dynamics, according to Drone Blog.
“While we specialise in drones, we are, at our core, an aerospace company. We plan to continue to develop and bring to market our cutting-edge products, such as the Atlas Blue-J, to develop these advanced technologies into accessible every day tools for professionals around the world.”
