  1. The ALTI team had an endurance flight with a standard Transition unmanned aircraft and achieved an endurance flight time of 10 hours, 43 minutes and 43 seconds. Various minor updates and improvements have been made to the ALTI Transition over the last few months and all these small changes have a BIG result, endurance. Based on calculations and previous flights, expected endurance was around 8 hours, compared with pre-production endurance tests of just over 6 hours in real world conditions. Breaking their very own expectations by nearly 3 hours on a standard, non-modified ALTI Transition ALTI is excited to offer their clients extended endurance to what is already an impressive 7 hour advertised performance. Since this flight ALTI have increase fuel capacity to allow for an endurance of over 11 hours, not because it was required, but because they could. To ALTI’s knowledge and research, an endurance of over 10 hours on a VTOL hybrid (fixed wing and multi-rotor) aircraft under 20kg MTOW and under 3m wingspan has never been achieved by any other aircraft. The current world record for any VTOL aircraft (manned or unmanned) is 22.5 hours, which ALTI plans on breaking by a few hours with its upcoming 6m wingspan ‘Reach’ due early 2018. ALTI develops, manufactures and exports the Transition VTOL system, a double-hybrid, unmanned and fully autonomous fixed wing aircraft with the ability to take-off and land vertically, from anywhere. The key objective with the ALTI Transition was to offer a highly capable, reliable and affordable civil use commercial VTOL (vertical take-off and land) aircraft, which one could actually purchase and use every day, unlike the majority of similar system, available only to military at high price points. The ALTI Transition is made from the highest-grade materials, to the highest standards using unique proprietary techniques. An advanced aerodynamic design with low stall speed, efficient cruise with very low drag, excellent stability in high winds and an incredibly low weight at only 5.6kg for the entire air-frame. The air-frame is completely modular and can be rapidly deployed, from in the case to in the air in under 10 minutes with only two operators required, this along with zero need for a runway or bulky and expensive catapult systems, provides quicker and safer operation, anywhere, any time. The Transition is designed as a hybrid system allowing for a combination of multi-rotor flight and traditional fixed wing flight, providing the advantages of both aircraft types, the practicality of multi-rotor flight for take-off and landing, with the efficiency, range and endurance of a fixed wing aircraft. The incorporation of VTOL technology into the fixed wing system allows the Transition to take-off and land in confined spaces, in a very short time, offering a massive advantage over traditional systems as well as a lower impact and stress on the aircraft with long term use, usually associated with hard and unpredictable parachute or belly landings.
  2. ALTI UAS, world-leading unmanned aircraft developer and manufacturing company, launches advanced Ground Control System (GCS). A complete control and command station for the ALTI Transition unmanned aircraft system as well as other stand-alone aircraft control or camera gimbal and sensor control unit. The ALTI GCS is an advanced, modular, multi-link unmanned aircraft command and control system. It features everything from a high-quality intel computer, pre-loaded with all the relevant mission planning software, dual screen design layout, backup data telemetry link, long range control link, main digital data link (flight planning and telemetry) as well as HD video support, all integrated seamlessly into a lightweight Pelican Air travel case. An optional Range Extension Package is available for the ALTI GCS, which boasts a long-range data and video operation of up to 100km, made possible using a pneumatic telescopic mast and directional grid antenna along with a 10W Microhard amplifier and optional antenna trackers. The ALTI GCS is complete with Intel NUC computer including wireless keyboard and mouse and comes standard with duel 15.6” LED HD display monitors allowing for 160°/160° viewing angles. The digital and video link is powered by Microhard MIMO 2.4Ghz pMDDL2450 ENC radio systems, a solution that provides the bandwidth and range needed for complex data intensive applications. “The ALTI Ground Control Station is designed specifically for the ALTI Transition, It is the ultimate all-round compact GCS solution for effectively controlling the ALTI Transition and other similar unmanned aircraft” said Duran De Villiers, Director, ALTI UAS. The ALTI GCS is compatible with the ALTI Transition, a highly capable, reliable and affordable civil use commercial VTOL (vertical take-off and land) aircraft. The Transition features impressive endurance of up to 12 hours, 3m wingspan, and with zero take-off run required, making it a pure VTOL unmanned aircraft. The ALTI GCS is compatible with various other unmanned aircraft, fixed wing, rotor wing, as well as hybrid aircraft, small quadcopters to large, long endurance fixed wings and more. The ALTI GCS is available with and included in any purchase of the ALTI Transition and also available for sale as a stand-alone product.

    ALTI Transition

    A modular 'rapid deploy' airframe allows setup and flying within a few short minutes, no bulky and complex launch and recovery hardware is required. The wings, and tail booms are easily and quickly removed without any tools, and the entire system packs into a compact case, ready for transport with massive cost savings and less hands required.
