Hi all, I have recently started a new job with a company that is producing the next generation of drones. Without giving too much away, our drones will significantly increase the flight time, distance and payload capabilities that that restrict existing drones. Our drones will also be able to withstand greater environmental conditions i.e. higher wind and heavier rainfall. As with existing drones, our next generation drone can be used in a multitude of markets from sports, film & entertainment recording, commercial, search & rescue, Inspection, emergency response, Oil & Gas, renewable energy, delivery companies etc. I would like to hear from anyone that has came across operations that have been restricted by current drone limitations or who may have an application that our technological advances would be advantageous. Regards Chris
Hi - Unfortunately, I am sellingmy complete thermal setup. I purchased this FLIR Vue Pro several years ago and it's mostly been in the box! I build a custom wiring harness and mount and have only conducted a few brief (and successful!) test flights on Inspire 1, Phantom 3 and 4 drones. I thought I'd have more projects with thermal imaging needs, but have stayed busy with standard visual and photometry projects. This FLIR camera is a high resolution thermal solution and works great with all of the following components (all listed below are included): FLIR VUE PRO. 336x256, 13mm, 9Hz (https://www.rmus.com/products/flir-vue-pro-thermal-imaging-camera) Video transmitter / custom wiring harness (https://usnightvision.com/predatir-flir-vue-kit-for-dji-phantom-2-3-4/) Portable battery/power supply Butterfly antenna Bosco Display Carbon/GoPro mounts, misc.. Stanley ABS toolbox carry case w/ foam packaging The camera new costs approx $2000, the video transmitter and wiring harness integration solution is priced around $900. All items listed above for $2500. Shipping costs, insurance, etc.. are buyers expenses. I am happy to send more info, or link up via Facetime if you want to see everything power up and transmit, etc.. Thanks for reading! Andrew
Hi there, I recently read some articles about UAVs being used for the purpose of structural inspections of offshore oil platforms and the cargo tanks of ships. Having worked operationally in the maritime industry for the last 16 years, in both the offshore energy and merchant sectors, I was wondering if I can help any UAV professionals get started in these markets. There is definitely lot of room for UAV service and product development in the maritime industry, so depending on your needs, I can help you understand the maritime industry better and identify local opportunities wherever you are in the world. If you are interested in developing new UAV related software and hardware, which may engage, entertain or help improve the safety and welfare of sea-goers, I would be happy to provide input and give advise. Just let me know! All the best Thom
Alpha Unmanned Systems is proud to announce that a emergency and rescue mission was accomplished with the SNIPER in the Gourd Coast Vessel "Clara Campoamor". The aim of the exercise was to use the SNIPER as the main tool to detect the exact location of the emergency providing the coordinates to the control center, enabling fast reaction and letting them decide the vehicle to be used for the rescue. The telemetry of the UAV and the Video were available at the main Control Center of Madrid and the target was detected in just 20 minutes of operation.
