Delair has introduced an open payload version of its DT26 long-range UAV.
The Open Payload model features a removable container which can hold up to 3kg of extra payload and be connected to a power supply of up to 140W.
It allows drone users to quickly add specialized sensors for specific imagery needs, such as ultra-high resolution, multispectral and hyperspectral, thermal and oblique imaging capabilities.
An optional cargo rack can be used to transport any type of items up-to 3 Kg over the long distance range the UAV supports.
Delair says that aerial data collection in industries such as agriculture, oil and gas, utilities, construction and transportation infrastructure benefit from being able to configure specific solutions with the modular platform that the DT26 provides.
Commenting, Benjamin Michel, chief product officer at Delair, said: “The Delair DT26 is a production proven, long-range and high-performance UAV that now can be custom-configured for any number of use needs through its highly stable payload cabin. The rugged design provides a safe and secure platform for precise and thorough inspections that often require specialized components.”
He added: “The platform can also serve as aerial testbed for sensor research and training as well. The Open Payload version has been specifically designed for efficient integration of sensors that will work seamlessly with the overall flight operation and workflows the DT26 offers and at a very affordable price.”
The Delair DT26 Open Payload model is supported by a technical diagnosis service that helps customers evaluate the compatibility of their specific payloads with the UAV’s architecture.
