UAV flight raises the bar by breaking altitude and off-shore distance records


A multinational engineering and consulting firm specialising in aerospace and defence systems has set a new bar for the UAV industry by claiming two new flight records.

The TARSIS 75 unmanned, fixed-wing aerial platform from AERTEC Solution, is continuing its testing campaign at the National Institute for Aerospace Technology’s El Arenosillo Testing Centre (CEDEA) in Huelva.

The operations marked TARSIS 75’s first flight over 100km. This record, operating from the coast, involved climbing to an altitude of 3,000 metres after taking off from sea level. It was not possible to exceed the 100km distance as this was practically at the limit of the segregated airspace, though one of its features is a radio communication range exceeding 150 kilometres.

During a previous test the TARSIS 75 also successfully executed a complete, automatic take-off and landing (ATOL) operation at the beach of Mazagón.

The TARSIS 75 and TARSIS 25 unmanned aerial platforms are one of AERTEC’s most innovative projects. The company develops the entire life cycle for these RPAS, from design and creation to assembly.
