SkyEye – VTOL Modular UAV Solution – UAV Solution from Mapping to Surveillance Missions
ElevonX UAV’s product strategy is based on the concept of modularity. Our innovative modular UAS solution gives our customers a competitive edge on the market of UAS services by providing them with a tool that can switch between different types of tasks with minimal changes on the UAV platform – from multispectral mapping to surveillance missions – in a matter of minutes.
- System modularity: one fuselage – multiple UAV configurations.
- Payload modularity: quickly adapt SkyEye UAV to different mission types (mapping, multispectral imaging, surveillance…).
- More than 15 possible combinations – complete tailoring to suit Your needs.
- Composite structure for maximum performance and precision.
The core of our modular system is the SkyEye payload module, designed to house different types of payloads (from multispectral cameras to retractable surveillance gimbals). This high-end glass fiber-kevlar composite module’s main features are:
- Large cargo bay (10 liters of volume, max dimensions 60x18x14 cm).
- Easy cargo access (top and bottom hatch 25×16 cm).
- Integrated cargo rail with predefined fixpoints.
- Modular propulsion options (gas/electric pusher or electric tractor).
- Removable fix-points for catapult launch.
- Optional landing gear (requires smooth take-off and landing surface).
- Removable nose cone (optional transparent nose cone for forward-looking camera installation).
- Streamlined design with highly visible livery (optional custom design).
- Wing-integrated avionics and parachute bay – payload bay dedicated for payload only.
ELEVONX SkyEye Sierra VTOL KEY ADVANTAGES are:
- Take-off and landing are performed in VTOL mode, like a helicopter.
- VTOL mode is advantageous because it does not need much space for take-off and landing.
- No need for a catapult launcher for take-off. VTOL landing is entirely accurate.
- There is no need for a parachute for landing, and there is no risk of damaging the plane during the landing.
- SkyEye Sierra VTOL platform is larger and more capable.
- It can carry up to 3 kg of payload. Range (at Cruise) 320 KM, Endurance (at Cruise) 3 hrs. Electric – 5 hrs. Gas.
- Motors are waterproof and dust resistant. In addition, the motors have a special protective covering to be pesticide-resistant.
- ELEVONX SkyEye Sierra VTOL is electric, so it’s quieter than a petrol engine if necessary and upgraded with a petrol engine.
